    Hello. I am looking for pumpkin seed painting instruction.
    I've practiced on about 6 pumpkinseed the last few years but haven't been satisfied with the results. Looking for someone that has successfully painted one and/or can offer instructions.

    Thank you.

    Best advice would be look at the colors,
    Look closely
    Closer
    Most of the time people can’t see the forest for the trees
    I’ve never used schedules
    I have a 54” tv in my shop and zoom into each scale to see the colors

    One of the best schedules you’ll find is a wood carving one that’s in a breakthrough magazine. I just adapted it yo my repro at that time. It’s a good step by step and the only thing you need to do is use different colors where needed.
