What's the best shade of orange to make pumpkins? I have so many shades of orange it's crazy.
Thank you

I know what you mean, I love orange too! Myself, I would try some Phoenix or that other striking one(CIM), to add some interest. Otherwise, the regular orange special is such a nice color I would try that unless I wanted a softer look. Halloween is really nice for that soft mango type of look. You can always touch up with a little enamel too for texture.

I think most orange shades are fine for pumpkins, from yellow orange to the coral ones. I really like the apricot orange ORANGE number 591419-O color I just got.

CIM Butternut looks like a good color , I haven't tried it though.

I used northstar lava, it's borosilicate.
