2012 Papier Mache Pumpkin 007



Word on the street is that this pumpkin was made in a Transylvanian sweatshop by stogie smoking old crones but the truth is that it was made by me my small shop in Midland, Michigan.


This pumpkin is unique and took approximately two weeks to complete using a variety of papier mache techniques and recycled materials. The pumpkin is hand painted and finished with a variety of oil stains and urethane.

Height: 13 inches
Weight: 5 pounds

This pumpkin is intended for interior use only.

NOTE: The inside of the pumpkin is painted flat black. To illuminate the interior it is suggest that a sheet of yellow or orange craft foam be placed inside the pumpkin to create a nice pumpkin-like glow when lit with a low watt light bulb. Do not use real flames or light bulbs that generate high heat.
