Now for something completely different!

photo 3We are more than happy to undertake unusual jobs and this was definitely classed as one of the stranger ones.

Having already painted a few footballs the previous year for CIS Insurance to be used in their promo pictures, this particular job was to paint a real Pumpkin in the cup sponsor’s livery.

As the draw for the semi-finals was due to take place on Halloween, the teams would be drawn from the hollowed out pumpkin.


Since we don’t paint many pumpkins at Refinish, my main concern was that the paint may not adhere to the pumpkin skin and peel straight off so we used a product used for recolouring leather which seemed to do the trick.
