Every Halloween, like many people, I carve a Jack-o-lantern. I carve out the usual plain old Jack-o-lantern with the triangle eyes and nose and am perfectly content with it.
I have seen many photos of pumpkin sculptures and was often amazed at the talent these artists displayed. The artist in me has always been curious but not enough to attempt it until now…
I came across this video on Pinterest & it inspired me to try it, since they just make it look soooooo easy.
Warning!! When they tell you to wear gloves, wear them. I started with bare hands. Pumpkin juice is highly acidic and eats away at your finger tips. Also, be careful using your carving tools. I used a paring knife to carve the majority of my pumpkin and knicked myself quite a few times. Use caution.
