The How to in No Carve Pumpkin Artistry

Several years ago I worked on a project for MidWest Living Magazine. They wanted ideas for " No Carve Pumpkins.  Drawing or painting pumpkins was a natural idea and my background in graphic art made it all the more appealing.

Remember scratchboard?  I created these pumpkins with ease... and it was fun!

Try this:

 Choose pumpkins that have a smooth surface. Spray paint the pumpkin with a flat black   cover.  Using sharp household tools such as needles, knives or an awl, scratch a design that is geometric or illustrative.
