1. Use scissors to cut fabric into about 1” squares.

Tap foam brush onto a piece of fabric then place into adhesive, then brush on another coat. Add another piece of fabric slightly overlapping the first then apply more over top. Repeat step until entire pumpkin is covered. Let dry.
3. Start flow of Black 3D Fashion Paint on paper towel using an even pressure on bottle for a smooth line. Place scratch paper on work surface. Working in sections at a time, paint on zebra stripes as shown. Immediately pour black glitter over wet paint then pour off excess onto scratch paper. Repeat step, letting paint dry if needed before moving to new section. When thoroughly dry, use small paintbrush to brush off excess glitter.
