Any pumpkin carvers out there?

23 posts in this topic

There's no way I'll attempt that lip ripper! I am going to try a fancier 2D. bae501 I thought about trying the HSO logo, after seeing the yours I might revive that thought.

My six year olds did theres almost all by themselves this year. I'll get them posted eventually.

Here's one I just finished tonight. After I was done carving, couldn't figure out what the heck I just did.

A little different lighting and things change.

Total dark. A little fuzzy trying to hold the camera steady.

HuntFish all carvings were done on regular pumpkins. Tough ones about a 3 hour ordeal. Wifey's doing a real detailed one now, she's going on hour #4.

wow, those are great. I'm lucky to get just the plane old round eyes, triangle nose, and crooked mouth.

Great Job

What do you guys use to carve away the outside like that?

I'm pretty good with the knife and have done stuff similar to Lip Ripper but I haven't tried carving on the outside yet. It gives it some added depth which is pretty cool.

I used a razor blade and a small filet knife. You first cut the image outline, then just cut the outter skin off a small bit at a time. An Exacto knife would be ideal. Hope this helps.

Here are my six year olds pumpkins. They pretty much did them themselves this year so they are pretty proud!
