Want to create the coolest pumpkin on the block this year? Break out the Tulip Dimensional Paint a.k.a. Puffy Paint and create a glowing pumpkin that will get lots of oohs and ahhs from the neighborhood kids. Here's just a few fun ideas that will help spark your creativity and get you into the Halloween spirit!
The best paint for glowing pumpkins is Tulip Glow-in-the-Dark Dimensional Fabric Paint! You can buy this glow paint in a 6-pack (find it on our site here). This paint comes in 6 diffferent colors and is activated by UV light. Blacklights work great for activating the glow and making it glow super bright.
For this glowing pumpkin creation from Jade Harrington on the iLoveToCreate blog, you simply squeeze out the paint in a clockwise twist of the hand all around the pumpkin. You can play around with the thickness and colors of the paint too!
This monogram pumpkin is so easy to make! All you need to do is place a sticker down on the pumpkin and dot around it with the glow paint! You can make a personalized one for every family member or spell out a phrase with several pumpkins. See the process in action in this video.
Here's a slight variation of the one above! Jaderbomb squeezed the paint onto the pumpkin and let it drip out like it was melting. Then she took a heat gun and crackled the paint for this super cool effect! Get the tutorial here!
