Depending on the size of the pinecone you can either use three shades of paint for a small to medium size pinecone or four different shades for a large size pinecone. This will allow you to clearly see the ombre effect.
How to do it :
- Take your toothbrush and clean off any dirt or bugs (recommend doing this step outdoor).
- Take your paint brush and apply the first shade on to 1/4 of the pinecone (recommend starting with the darkest shade at the bottom of the pinecone and working your way up).
- Continue painting the next shade to the next 1/4 of the pinecone.
- Repeat step 3 with the rest of the shades until you reach the top.
