    For a dirty pour you will want to start with a base color in your cup and slowly add small amounts of different colors. Continue layering different colors into cup until you reach desired amount. Drag a craft stick through the colors twice to mix the layers slightly together. Pour over entire pumpkin lid and base in a circular motion. Pick up lid and base to make sure you do not have excess in the crevices of the pumpkin. Let dry several hours or overnight to fully cure.
