Wash and dry the pumpkin.
Prime the entire pumpkin with craft paint. Let the paint dry completely, preferably until the next day.
Draw patterns, spider webs, scary creepy-crawlies and Halloween messages with Posca markers. If the marker is new, shake it well first and then press the tip against a piece of paper until it fills with ink. Then you can start drawing on the pumpkin.
Would you rather avoid the mass of carving a pumpkin? Then we suggest painting and drawing on pumpkins instead. This will also help the pumpkins last longer and you can decorate with them inside for Halloween. If you want to paint the entire pumpkin in a different colour, it is best to prime it first with Hobbylack craft paint. Then once the paint is dry, you can draw cool Halloween designs with Posca markers. Posca markers are opaque and are also visible on dark materials, which means you can draw on top of other colours once they are dry.
