Use a paint brush to apply adhesive wherever you would like gold leaf on your pumpkin.
Allow to dry just enough so that the adhesive has changed from white to clear. It will be tacky.
Carefully place sheets of gold leaf to areas with adhesive.
Use a dry, stiff brush to smooth gold leaf and create distressed edges.
Apply sealer and allow to dry.

Allow to dry.
Protect pumpkin stems, by covering with masking/painters tape.
Use chalk spray paint to give it the finishing touch!

MARBELIZED PUMPKINS:
Add warm water to a disposable bowl. -pour nail polish in wavy pattern on top of water (use 2 or 3 colors if you like). -while holding the stem, dunk the pumpkin in and swirl around in nail polish -set on protected surface to dry.

SILVER LEAF PUMPKIN:
Foil – https://amzn.to/2QMOXK4
Mod Podge – https://amzn.to/2POKyoG

Gather leaves from your garden.

Apply Mod Podge (I used the matte finish) to the back of the leaf with paint brush.

Use your brush to help form leaf to pumpkin and also paint more mod podge over the top and around of the leaf to help secure it.
