  1. Cast the mold in usual manner. Allow to dry. Clean the greenware with a Clean-Up Tool. Bisque fire to cone 04.
  2. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  3. Using a Basecoat Brush, basecoat the whole pumpkin with 1-2 coats of SS-24 Chocolate Fudge. Allow to dry.
  4. Using a Basecoat Brush, basecoat the whole pumpkin except the stem with 1-2 coats of MM-103 Dark Bronze Metallic. Allow to dry.
  5. Drybrush the pumpkin except the stem with1-2 coats of MM-102 Copper Metallic. Allow to dry.
  6. Apply 1 coat of MM-106 Steel Metallic to the stem. When dry apply a 2nd coat of MM-106 Steel Metallic to the stem, while this coat is still wet apply a coat of MM-305 Rapid Rust to the stem. You may want to lay the pumpkin on its side so the MM-305 Rapid Rust does not drip onto the pumpkin. Allow to dry.
