Gilded Gold & Silver Pumpkins

Do you like my gilded gourds? I was in a pickle. I'm using neutral colors in my fall decorating this year and wanted to add some pumpkins. Orange was a bit too bright and white was just too blah... I picked up some foam pumpkins from the Dollar Tree & a few tubes of the magic elixir: Rub 'N Buff.

This was my first time using Rub 'N Buff so I was a little nervous. Turns out there was no reason to be, it really could not be easier to use. All you do is put a dab of Rub 'N Buff on a soft cloth (I used a tissue) and rub (' buff!) it onto your item. A dab goes a looong way so I have lots left for future projects.
now if I could just get it off my fingernails

I did a few pumpkins with Silver Leaf and a few with Grecian Gold...

Then I decided to get fancy and make a gold dipped pumpkin.

And then I got really fancy and made a two-tone favorite of the bunch!

I am loving the look and the ease of using Rub 'n Buff. I've got about a thousand things I'd like to try it on...a frame! a lamp! my front door! (just kidding...)
or am I?

And the ugly ducking becomes a swan :)
