Directions:

1) Protect your work surface with a piece of paper before you start painting. Holding the stem of the pumpkin, carefully brush on a thin coat of white paint. Let dry one hour. Paint on another coat of paint to make sure none of the orange comes through. Let dry completely (at least two hours).
