Today I stopped by Michael’s on my way home in search of some new carving tools. I have a great set of wood carving tools that are great for the 2D images, but when it comes to these 3D I have found that a simple pairing knife (only tool used for yesterday’s post) and basic clay carving tools work best. So I picked up a few new clay tools for tonight’s pumpkin. While at Michael’s I also saw those artificial pumpkins, I bought one to see how it compares to the real thing. I love the idea that it can last for a significantly longer period, but something about the smell and the texture of a real pumpkin is going to be hard to beat. Either way I will give it a try this weekend and report back
This was my attempt at creating a Grizzly bear, the final product ended more as a Gorilla crossed with a Grizzly. However all in all I was happy with the outcome.
