Using this as my inspiration/tutorial: Blue Pumpkin Tutorial, I created some distressed pumpkins using Dollar Store pumpkins to make a vignette for Fall decorating. I bought eight pumpkins/gourds at the Dollar Store then purchased Crackle Medium from the new Martha Stewart Paint Line as well as some metallic paint in Copper. I definitely got a weathered look but it didn't really 'crackle' like the example above... I'm happy with the final results though and look forward to being able to try 'crackling' other stuff!
