CSI Turquoise Challenge

My home is mostly muted colors.  Although I love turquoise colored clothing and jewelry,  it doesn’t work well in my home.  I wanted to give the color a try so I chose a pumpkin because it is seasonal and I have never seen a turquoise pumpkin.

I had this traditional colored orange pumpkin that I painted with acrylic turquoise paint with a black glaze.

And now it is turquoise.

  4. I love it! Isn't it crazy the "funky" things we like? I think it makes such a cool statement. A statement that says you will dare to be a little different and to think outside the box. If you want to get rid of it like you did the scales... :) just joking... Great paint job...

  22. So pretty! I would put it next to my purple sofa, I love the two colors together! I'd also put it with the original orange. Rust and turquoise are another winning combo for me.

  23. Tracy, that is an amazing pumpkin!!! I wouldn't have thought I would like it til I saw it! I'm not a turquoise person. :-) I like it at your house, but probably wouldn't do one at mine, cause I don't have anything that matches! :-0
    Fantastic transformation!!!
