I made these pumpkins by putting wet cement into the feet of knee high nylons. After adding the cement I tie off the top and cut the remaining nylon leaving about 2 inches. Rubberbands are then wrapped around the nylon, top to bottom to create the ribs of the pumpkin. A little more cement is put into the top part of the nylon where I had cut the excess off to create the stem. After it dries I cut the rubberbands off then paint it with orange acrylic paint. I then use gold, bronze or copper Rustoleum metallic accent to add more dimension to the pumpkin. When done I spray the entire pumpkin with Rustoleum's 2X ultra cover clear gloss.
