With the Federal election today it seemed fitting to carve a few of the top runners!
You’re not allowed to whine or complain about something if you can do something about it. I don’t care who you vote for, but this is your ability to do something about it. So get out and vote… Or don’t complain about the outcome.
This is a pumpkin design that was originally carved by Ray Villafane. He does some amazing work and since I am still trying to figure out the 3D pumpkins I thought I would try to copy some of his work. It turned out quite well, I was happy with it. This was a 45 lbs pumpkin, I am having trouble finding bigger pumpkins this year since the weather has been so dry. Hopefully I can stumble across some big ones to do a few more 3D ones!
From start to the mid point
Well I couldn’t do DLB without doing her husband, the man behind the clothing company.
For the MLS pumpkin carving contest.
With Halloween quickly approaching the scary pumpkin ideas start flowing. I hope everyone has their scary costumes ready for the big night!
I’ve had a few people ask what kind of tools I use so I’ve included a picture of the tools I used for this pumpkin after I traced the image.
Large knife to open the pumpkin, exacto knife for fine details, v shaped wood carving tool for the shaving, and the classic pumpkin knife for cutting out sections.
Something for the love story lovers out there. Noah and Allie reunited again.
Thanks to Zach for helping on this pumpkin 🙂
With plans to see the The Ides of March in the next few days. I thought I would do a Ryan pumpkin for the ladies. I can now say I’ve done Ryan Gosling 😉
