These pumpkins are great, I think your skills are up there with the likes of ray villafane and scott Cummings keep up the good work I look forward to seeing more of your carvings
Thanks Paul! That means a lot to me! I still have a lot to learn when it comes to pumpkin sculpting, but I know there are some awesome things in store in the near future! I’ll be posting some more pumpkin carvings soon!
I want to try something like this in a few days. How do I keep it fresh till Halloween? thanks
Well, if you will be carving it in a few days, please keep in mind that it will only look “display worthy” for 2 days max, and then it will slowly start to dry out and wither. After about 4-6 days, they really need to be thrown away. There are a few things you can do to slow the process, like put it in the refrigerator. And I have heard lemon juice on the carved area works to preserve it a bit, but as soon as you expose the carved area to air, the drying/rotting process occurs much faster. If you really want them for Halloween, carve one a day or two before. For now I would just keep practicing and having fun with it. Display them wherever, whenever! Just always remember to take some great pictures for memories!
Thanks. You’re very inspiring!
Awesome stuff! Is there anything you do before carving? Like dip the pumpkin in water? I’m trying to time my pumpkin just right for Halloween lol. Thanks!
You are awesome. So happy that I was able to have one of the first of your pumpkins a couple of years ago. It lasted much longer than I thought and was the highlight of my front porch on Halloween. Hi to all your family. Watched you on the news last night.
Amazing work! Can’t wait if you could do Pit Bull Sharky one day
Love your pumpkins and feathers. Would love to try my hand at both.
I could so see head masks done of your pumpkin heads, cause I would so love to wear one for Halloween your faces are crazy girl!!!
Thank you! I may end up casting some molds of these pumpkins soon!
