      I'm not sure, but just a "little glue" in the paint, like in a cup of paint -- maybe a few tablespoons glue.

      I would instead recommend using acrylic paints if you have them.

      If not, and you want to try something new, try BioColors from Discount School Supply.

      Hi everyone,

      One of the third grade teachers at my school asked me about the best 
      way to paint on pumpkins. She said that in the past, they have used a 
      tempera paint and glue mixture. She noticed that some years the 
      pumpkins come out better than others and asked what glue ratio would 
      work best. Does anyone have any experience with this? I told her I had 
      no idea, but I would ask the other art teachers from this listserve :)
      Thank you!
