Sharing knowledge for the art of artificial craft pumpkins.

Generally I find the stems on these fake foamies, like the Gemmy ones to be.......pretty decent.

They replicate the look of a real pumpkin stem or at least try to.

But then on some of these other I notice the paint job on them is, kinda lousy. Cheap & tacky, really makes them standout and a dead giveaway as not the real deal. Very plastic-looking. I like to carve quite a bit on the HOME DEPOT 12" craft 'kins and they're really good pumpkins, but the stem is yeah sorta crap. So I was wondering if it would be a good idea take it upon one self to repaint these stems or, is it not really worth the effort?

Here's my attempt to do so:

They look great, really like the repainted stem. Haven't done it myself but now you pointed it out it's going to bother me.... :shock:
