So, I bought one of the big blow mold pumpkins from Home Depot this year.


But, I don't use the lighting/sound that it comes with. I drill out holes for c7 bulb and connect to a lamp cord with vampire plugs to include with my pumpkin patch.

The issue I ran into with this one is that when lit, the pumpkin is very translucent and any detail of the jack o lantern face is lost when lit (it's not the brightness of the bulb, it's the same bulb I use in all of the pumpkins).

Thoughts on how to mod so that the face is more differentiated?

Have you tried a light coat of a plastic spray paint? Tape off the eyes & stem & give it a light coating.
