DIY! Make your own spooky pumpkin with Paper Mache in 12 easy steps!!!

In this detailed "How to Guide" we will give you the steps-by-step instructions that Duane used to create his spooky paper mache Halloween Pumpkin.  We encourage you to try making this type of pumpkin yourself by using these easy steps, as it will last you for many years to come.  

Check out this "How to Guide" and feel free to pop us a message if you have any questions! 

Supplies Needed:

You will need the following supplies before you can start creating your own spooky Halloween pumpkin.  Most of the supplies are something you would likely have around the house or that you can pick up at the dollar store. 
  • Newspaper (3-4)
  • Plastic Shopping Bag (1)
  • Masking Tape 1 Inch Wide (1 Roll)
  • Sandpaper Medium to Rough Grit (1)
  • Flour (1 Cup)
  • Toilet Paper (1 Roll)
  • Drywall Compound (1 Cup)
  • White School Glue (3/4 Cup)
  • Glue Gun
  • Linseed Oil (2 Tablespoons) - this will pervert bug investigation & cracking from humidity
  • Salt (1 Teaspoon)
  • Scissors
  • Knives for Carving your Pumpkin 
  • Orange & Brown Craft Paint (or any other colors you want to use)
  • Spray Paint 
  • Small Paint Brush
  • Blender or Manual Mixer (i.e. bowl and stir)
  • Plastic Gloves (these aren't needed but make clean up a lot easier) 
  • Large Boiling Pot
  • Wisk
  • Drywall Compound
  • Varnish

Step 1: Fill Up Your Plastic Bag With Newspapers 

The first step is to fill up the plastic bag with crushed newspaper balls. Fill the bag right to the top but don't forget to push the paper down tightly. Once the bag is full, tie off the bag. 

Step 2: Shaping Your Pumpkin 

Now we are going to shape the pumpkin. Take the masking tape and start going around the
Bag. Pull the tape tightly to get more defined edges on the pumpkin. Once this step is done and you are happy with the shape, then we can start the paper mache :)

Note: Instead of using a shopping bag with newspaper, you can also use a balloon.  However, it's much more difficult as the balloon often breaks. 

Step 3: Cut Newspaper Into Strips

So this step is pretty easy, you will simply need to precut your newspaper into strips (approx 1.5 inches wide).  You will need roughly 40-50 strips.  The number of newspaper strips required would vary based on the size of the pumpkin you create. You are going to want around 4 layers of paper mache for strength. 

Step 4: Make Your Paper Mache 

  • Bring 4 cups of waters to a boil in a large boiling pot. 
  • Mix 1 cup of flour and water together
  • Make sure to get the lumps out.
  • Add half a cup of all purpose glue (Elmer's)
  • Add 1 teaspoon of salt
  • Mix all together and let cool for approx. 1 hour
NOTE: It's not a big deal if you cannot get all of the lumps out, you can mold the paper mache around your pumpkin

Step 5: Apply Paper Mache 

Dip your strips of newspaper into the paper mache mix. Try to remove any excess paper mache mixture, by skimming the paper in between your fingers (from top to bottom). Lay each strip over the pumpkin, smooth out each strip using your fingers.  Try to smooth out as many bumps or creases as possible.  Don't worry if you can't because not all pumpkins are alike and the creases give your pumpkin character :) 

Step 6: Make The Pumpkin Stem 

Once you have the first layer of paper mache finished and it's dried completely, now is time to make the pumpkin stem. Roll newspaper into the shape you want, wrap with masking tape. Use a hot glue gun to apply stem to pumpkin, use more masking tape to hold it in place.

Step 7: Apply the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Layer of Paper Mache 

Apply the 2nd, 3rd and 4th layer of paper mache.  Follow Step #5 and remember to let each layer dry for approx. 12 hours before applying the next layer.  

NOTE: Using a fan will help speed up the drying process. 

Step 8: Carve Your Pumpkin Face

Once your 4 layers of paper mache are finished and dry, and then you can draw on your face. Use whatever type of pattern you want, there are many free ones available on the Internet.

You're going to want to cut the face out before you start the paper clay process, because it will be too difficult to cut through. Also cut a hole in the bottom of pumpkin.  See below photos:

Step 9: Mix Your Paper Clay

Paper Clay
1 roll of double pile toilet paper
1 cup of drywall compound (premixed)
3/4 white glue (Elmer’s)
2 tablespoons linseed oil (this will pervert bug investigation & cracking from humidity) 

Start by filling a bowl with water and soaking the toilet paper in the water. Once its fully saturated remove the cardboard roll and you can began to rip the toilet paper in to small piece. Try to drain the water by squeezing the paper in the palm of your hand, continue to do this until the full roll is ripped into pieces and drained. Once that's done then mix in other ingredients. Mix well until you have a paste.

Step 10: Apply Paper Clay to Your Pumpkin

It's important to leave the pumpkin stuffed because this will add protection from it collapsing as you add the paper clay. Duane did 2 coats of paper clay, because he wanted it to be super hard and it adds more defining edges.

Have a bowl of water handy when you start to spread the paper clay on, this will help with smoothing out the mixture, the more smooth it becomes the less sanding you'll have to do in the end. You can use gloves for this part if you want, let the clay dry for 24 hours before you sand it.

Step 11: Remove Paper From Inside Pumpkin

This is another easy step, once the clay has dried, turn your pumpkin upside down and pull out all of the newspaper. 

Step 12: Sand Your Pumpkin 

This step is also pretty easy, sand your pumpkin, but don't worry too much about making it completely smooth.  It adds character if your pumpkin has some imperfections!

Step 13: Paint & Protect Your Pumpkin 

Paint the inside of the pumpkin first. You should choose a bright color. Duane used a metallic gold. Duane mixed four different shades of orange to create highlights and depth to the pumpkin.  Do a complete coat of just orange (solid color without mixing) and let dry completely.

Then add light tones and dark tones to the edges for a faux finish. Once your painting is done make sure to protect your work with a clear protective top coat, if you're putting it outside use a spar varnish. Use the clear coat on the inside too. 

NOTE: You do not need to use Varnish, however you would not be able to put your pumpkin outside unless varnished. 

Show Off Your New Pumpkin! 

Please make sure that you use either a flashlight or battery operated tea lights.  We don't want you burning down your house with your snazzy new pumpkin :)
Thanks for reading everyone :)

Have a safe and Happy Halloween! :)

Hello again :)

Hey folks, it has been some time since I've posted on Duane's blog, life has been hectic moving to Halifax but we are finally getting settled into our regular old routine! 

Duane is back into the swing of things, and is working on a few paintings and a couple of DIY projects.    

Today post is a "Mini - How To Guide" on converting an old yard sale filing cabinet into a beautiful accent piece. 

Here's what it looked like before:

We picked up this filing cabinet at a yard sale for $15.00 but it was hella ugly. 

Do it yourself

Duane decided to paint the filing cabinet bright red with Krylon oil based metal paint.  Krylon is easy to use as it does not require you to sand or prime the cabinet (which makes this a quick project).

For more info on Krylon paint please checkout the below link:

​http://www.krylon.com/products/rust-protector-rust-preventative-enamel-half-pint/

The best way to apply the paint is with a foam roller, and you will likely need to apply a second coat. You will need to wait approx 90 minutes before applying the second coat.

Also, the paint takes around 24 hours to cure, so please make sure you don't use the cabinet for at least 24 hours. 

Here's a before and after shot:

Here's a look at the final product decorated!!

I also want to thank everyone for visiting Duane's website over the past few months.  We have been averaging approx. 50+ unique visitors per day, yet we haven't published any new content since June 2015!  We really appreciate all of your support and interest :)

​​Stay tuned for more exciting updates in the near future! :)

Welcome to our first ever "How to Guide"

Duane is a self taught visual artist & wanted the world to have an inside peek at how he crafts each of his paintings.  For our first ever "How To Guide", we will be using a Batman photo that Duane painted a few years back.

*A cartoon/animated character is one of the easiest types of paintings & is a good starting point for any aspiring artist. 

Step 1: Sketching/Drawing

The first and most important step that Duane follows before starting any new painting is to sketch out his subject(s) (i.e. cartoon character, buildings, houses, etc.) on the canvas with a pencil.  

What is sketching?
  • "A sketch is a rapidly executed freehand drawing that is not usually intended as a finished work. A sketch may serve a number of purposes: it might record something that the artist sees, it might record or develop an idea for later use or it might be used as a quick way of graphically demonstrating an image, idea or principle.​" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sketch_(drawing)
Sketching a painting, is there a right or wrong way of doing it?
  • There is no right or wrong way to sketch out a painting. A sketch is something used by an artist as a guide/point of reference.  It is much more important for landscape/scenic photos to sketch, as you will need to ensure that the scale of your scene is correct. NOTE: a ruler comes in very handy. 
​Do all artists sketch before painting?
  • No, not all artists sketch, but it makes the process much easier & saves time.

Step 2: Shading / Coloring 

The next step is always coloring & shading. These two steps usually go hand-in-hand. 

What is shading?
  • "Shading is important to creating paintings that have a realistic and natural look to them. Without shading, paintings can look flat and dull. Shading allows light to play off of the objects, scenery and people in your paintings and brings these images to life with vivid detail. The basics of shading are quite simple, however the numerous applications can take years to truly master."  - http://www.ehow.com/way_5175527_shading-techniques-painting.html
  • For more information on Shading Techniques, please check out the above link. 
  • Shading is not an easy technique to master & requires a lot of practice & patience. 
What is coloring?
  • This is a very simple step that involves painting (coloring in) all areas of the sketched character while blending colors as necessary.  Just like in kindergarten folks, remember to color (paint) inside the lines :)
Below are some photos of Duane's Coloring/Shading techniques:

Step 3: Coloring Background

Once you have finished shading / coloring in your character, the next step is to paint in the background color (depending on the type of painting some artists may paint the background first). Be very careful when painting in the background that you do not overlap the background color with your primary character (in this situation Batman). 

*For most animated paintings, the background is a solid color.

NOTE: If painting a scenic photo, it usually works best to paint the background (clouds, sky, etc.) first & then sketch over the painted background (once dry of course) with your primary focal points (i.e. houses, buildings, churches, cartoon characters etc.). 

Step 4: Fine Details / Sign It

The next step is to add in any fine/additional details, in this situation it simply involved the Batman symbol & the word Batman.  In scenic photo for example, the fine details would usually be things like grass, trees, etc. 

Once you've completed your painting don't forget to sign & date it

Step 5 (Final Step): Spray It

Duane wants to ensure that his artwork lasts for a very long time, so he sprays all of his paintings with a clear acrylic matte finish spray.  This will give your painting a permanent protective finish.   

Duane uses only Krylon Low Odour Clear Matte Finish Spray on all of his artwork.  Please read instructions on can prior to using & remember to spray it on evenly with as little overlap as possible. 

For more information on this product check out the below link:

​Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more exciting How To Guide's.

Hola! Clement Hayward here on behalf of Duane Osmond!  He's a very busy artist so I will be here from time to time helping him out with his BLOG!!!! :)  

I'm going to try and answer a few basic questions about the differences in the canvas' that Duane uses in his artwork! 

So, here we go! Wish me luck, better pray that I've been listening the past 7 years! LOL :D 

Q&A

1. What is canvas?

- "Canvas is an extremely heavy-duty plain-woven fabric used for making sails, tents, marquees, backpacks, and other items for which sturdiness is required. It is also popularly used by artists as a painting surface, typically stretched across a wooden frame. It is also used in such fashion objects as handbags, electronic device cases and shoes."
- Wikipedia 

2. What type of canvas does Duane use for his paintings?

- Canvas Board & Stretched Canvas.

3. What is the difference between  Stretched Canvas & Canvas Board?

- Stretched Canvas is literally canvas that has been stretched over a wooden frame, and then stapled onto the back (see photos below). This type of canvas is available at your local craft store in variety of sizes.  The benefit of purchasing a painting on stretched canvas is that it can be very easily hung & does NOT require a frame.  Stretched Canvas is a much better "gift option", as you do NOT have the added expense of having it framed.   

- Canvas Board is piece of artist canvas that has been mounted on a paperboard (see photos below), it CANNOT be hung to the wall without framing (unless you use glue or a screw, but please don't do that! lol). Canvas Board is also available at your local craft store in a variety of sizes.  Canvas board is the BEST option if you want your picture to be hung in a normal frame. In certain situations, depending on what size canvas board you want, you may be able to buy a frame to fit it at a local department store (this is a very cheap option if you are lucky enough to find a frame that fits your artwork). If not, then it will have to be custom framed, which can be very expensive.  

4. Can Stretched Canvas be framed?

- Yes, Stretched Canvas can be framed but it's not a beginner level task.  You would likely need to have it professional framed, due to the depth of the wooden frame. You will be hard pressed to find any frame to fit it. If you are very handy you may be able to build a wooden frame around the stretched canvas, and perhaps use plexiglass. 

5. Which canvas is better for painting? Which canvas will preserve my art longer?

- They both have pros and cons. Stretched canvas has more give and allows for springier brush strokes. Due to the frame, the stretched canvas will warp far less than the canvas boards over time. ​The canvas boards have ZERO give while painting, meaning brush strokes are more like drawing and the board also keep its original texture more (somewhat grainy in appearance). Canvas board will be better protected over time (if framed properly) then stretched canvas, which has no covering.  Ultimately, the choice in canvas is what best suits your needs and what type of piece you are looking to have created!

If you do have any questions please feel free to contact Duane or I and we will get back to you right away!

PS. If I've made any technical errors in my Q&A (besides for grammar/spelling lol), let me know and I'll update the post ASAP ! :)

Thanks for reading the first post in Duane's new blog!!! :D
