I’m being lazy tonight. Halloween is a chaotic holiday around here. Setting up the spooks, and feeding mass numbers of teenage boys all geeked up to scare the neighbors, it takes a lot out of a girl.
Instead, I’m posting my pumpkin carving skills. Yes. I did these all myself, no, I did not use premade templates. I did however use the Dremel, it makes for faster shading in the big parts. I go in with a wire tool for finer stuff.
This one is Fire. It turned out pretty darn good if I do say so myself.
This second one is Halloween, this one took sometime, but I carved the top where you take off the head to put a candle in so that it looked like eyes. The teeth look really awesome in the light but the photo doesn’t really do the detail justice.
This last one is melting. It was the most difficult to do, but mostly because I needed to make it look like a face. I’m still not satisfied with the results, but I’ve made mental notes for next year. The eyes didn’t quite work out the way I had hoped.
Last but not least. This one is NOT MINE. Just an FYI, but I thought it was cool and well, fitting for my blog when I found it on google.
That is one skilled carver! Looks like something right off an old romance novel. Absolutely love it!
Anyway, have a great week everyone and hope you had a fantastic Halloween.
