In this class you will be painting your pumpkins first to prep them for the diorama pieces. Once your diorama pieces are painted they will be arranged inside the pumpkin and glued in place before the lights and glass are applied. The glass window will be soldered onto the pumpkin for a special lighted diorama.

Materials Fee $25 paid at beginning of class includes:

Glass, copper tape, pumpkin, little girl, diorama pieces, lights, paints, patina.

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

Cookie sheet for your solder station, Soldering iron (WELLER 100 watt), soldering iron stand, spool of lead-free solder (I buy the one from Hobby Lobby with the purple label - 675D), flux for soldering, salamoniac block, E6000 glue, scissors, paint brushes, jewelry pliers set, rag or towel, apron

Optional items:
Any bits and pieces you would want to personalize in your pumpkin diorama.
