    Default Pumkin Carvings

    Hey i wonted to start a Thread for any Pumpkin Carvers out there.. I didn't see one on the forums so i hope I'm not duplicating this thread..

    Here is a sample of the pumpkins i have carved over the years and patterns i drew out:

    My Black Pearl Pattern and carving

    Please if you need any patterns or help let me know as i will be happy to assist you in any matter... I have about 3Gigs of HD space (and growing) dedicated to Pumpkin carving patterns from kid easy to extremely hard. My patterns vary in subject from Disney to military and all the in between's...

    Well hello there! While I am no expert, I too take my pumpkin carving very seriously. Every year I try to out-do myself by either doing a really intricate pattern or something really unique. Usually I don't copy a pattern directly. Here's a few things from my past...

    My big idea last year was a spin-off of the cannibal pumpkins with the big pumpkin eating the little pumpkins. I created the Revenge Pumpkin by having the little pumpkins gnawing on the big pumpkin.


    I'm not sure what to do this year. I've always wanted to do a Headless Horseman. Or should I try something with shading like you see the experts do.

    Thanks!

    Hey Vampire nice to see a fellow carver on board.. I have a couple of headless horseman carving stencils, if you would like to see them let me know, also i have pumpkin carving software that i use to make custom shading and carving stencils from any digital picture... Over the years i have been participating in different Halloween (primarily pumpkin carving) forums and know a lot of people that do custom work so if i cant do it i know someone who might help..

    ooooo i love pumpkin carvings! These are the ones i did last year- hard to tell from the pic but the one to the far right is a witch and cauldron. I need a template though- I'm horrible at sketching a design and making it look good by hand! LOL

    Some of the ones that I have done are in an album on my profile(link below). I always freehand sculpt the ones that I do, the only drawback is the time that it takes to do them.

    Great thread. I was just thinking of starting one as it would be a cool way to keep all the carvings together.

    I haven't done any real pumpkins yet, but I've started on my horror cinema wall-of-fame display for my movie theater haunt. These are the tiny little craft foam pumpkins about the size of sugar pumpkins.

    Hey Witchymom those are some great carvings..... I do have some witch templates if your interested i would be more than happy to pm them to you...

    Also with most if not all carvings no matter how complex they are you are going to need the right tools.. I found this saw on zombie pumkins a few years ago and have found it to be indispensable with fine to medium details... It was a little cheaper when i bought it but i guess inflation...

    You can get an idea of a great cutter and i know exacto has a set like this but made with steel and you can get it at any hobby shop... I like the wood as it easier to handle when your hands are wet.. I hope this helps and would love to see your carving after the Holiday...
