1.  Protect your work area with newspaper. Tear sheets of aluminum foil. To the shiny-side randomly mist water onto its surface and immediately spray with Orange.  Wait about 20 seconds then dab off the moisture with a paper towel. Let the surface dry for about a minute then repeat the mist – spray – dab sequence with Tiger Lily.  When dry, turn sheets over and spray with Tack 2000 spray adhesive.

2.  Tear foil into smaller strips and adhere to a pumpkin form.  Rub to secure and accent ridges of pumpkin.  Overlap strips and let wrinkles appear occasionally for handcrafted look.

3.  Embellish with gold chenille tendrils. Cut black duct tape to fashion jack-o-lantern faces.
