Heat Gun Pumpkin Decorating
A heat gun will soft sculpt an everlasting pumpkin.
It doesn't take a spell or potion to conjure up your inner pumpkin master. All you need is a plastic everlasting pumpkin and the Wagner FURNO 500 Heat Gun to sculpt a wicked witch that is sure to scare ghosts and goblins away. Once prepared, the heat gun will aid in crackling the paint and creating just the right scary, vintage finish.
Heat over pumpkin eye area
Set the heat gun to medium heat and place directly over pumpkin where recessed eye sockets will be.
Heat a spoon
Heat 15 seconds and use a metal kitchen spoon to create indentations.
Create eye and mouth indentations
The heat gun can be used to create both eye sockets and a mouth indentation.
Sculpt and add a nose, if desired.
Paint pumpkin and heat
Then paint the entire pumpkin and immediately dry with the heat gun to create a crackle finish.
Dress up your pumpkin!
For a full-size display, perch pumpkin atop a dress form. Create similar decorative pumpkins to line benches, stone walls, and staircases. Wrap in craft paper to store and use from year to year.
