How to paint mandala candy corn on round surface
I chose to use my paper mache pumpkin for this project since it was sort of un eventful and thought it would be easy to practice something new. As you can see it doesn’t even have pumpkin sections on it. When I bought it i thought it would be perfect for decoupage but hey you know me I have ideas popping into my head all the time. This time I decided to paint Candy corn pattern with doodle dots . Not going to lie felt a bit overwhelmed but I thought i was ready
I decided to paint my pumpkin black with acrylic paint. I would suggest to first to cover your pumpkin with Mod Podge before painting background color if you are dealing with paper mache pumpkin so paint is not being absorbed. That will explain why my color dots were fading away. Rest assure I found a way to bring them back without starting my project all over. Make sure to see that tip at at the end
Grab your dotting tool and organize your dowels from smallest to biggest and start your dots. Make sure not to touch your surface with dowel just leave paint as you press. Notice that I interlock dots in each row
I thought descending dots over biggest dot were the best idea. I wanted to repeat candy corn colors over my paper mache pumpkin diy. My fall decor idea is coming together for sure

As I mentioned earlier I was on the mission to enhance my fading away dots so decided to try epoxy to see if that will help and to my surprise it did help!
