How to make pumpkin teeth white?

Post by amandap80 » Thu Oct 20, 2011 5:34 pm

I found this guy on extreme pumpkins:

I want to use one of my larger, evil lumpy ones to do this. What are the community thoughts on how to make the teeth white? Acrylic paint?
Whenever I have to urge to run through my yard naked, I drink some Windex. It keeps me from streaking.

yep :) let the teeth dry out a little bit then apply white over it and it will help seal it some

Yup! I did it last year on one of my kins (sorry no photo as my camera busted just after Halloween). I just painted the teeth with 2 coats of white glue to seal then use acrylic craft paint. Then I sealed it again with a little more white glue. Didn't budge a bit!
