In the Createx line, their transparent paints are good for shading colors over underlying colors, or to spray over a clear plastic bait for a see-thru translucent effect like a watermelon plastic worm. Getting a particular color effect is hard to formulate. It depends on the underlying surface; clear plastic, white undercoated wood, foil, etc., the brand of paint, how much paint you apply, and what you picture in your mind's eye as the right color. But I think a bright green transparent Createx would be the best starting point. For green pumpkin, start with olive green. Mist the paint on thinly and build it up until you have the shade you want. Hope this helps.
