Apply the spackle to the pumpkin. I found it was easiest to use my hands, but you can also use a putty knife. If the spackle is too thick, you can use wet your hands or tool with water and apply.

Allow the spackle to dry throughly between coats. I did one full coat. After it dried, I went back and touch up some areas when the spackle was thin.

Once the spackle is fully dry, paint the pumpkins using acrylic paint. Note: The spackle and acrylic paint and not waterproof, so it’s best to keep these pumpkins indoors.
