Gourds with glitz
To gild a pumpkin, squash, or gourd, start by covering the area you want to remain orange with painter’s tape. Place in a
box and spray a coat of gold paint on one side. Let dry, then turn and paint the other side. Remove tape when dry. For a slightly
more textured finish, skip the spray and paint a few coats of gold acrylic paint on the squash with a foam brush.
