Thanks! That means a lot. It's super rewarding, but the process is equally ridden with anxiety. I have my next carve lined up already but I keep putting it off behind other projects. It's funny because I think this is the only group on the planet who can understand my stress of worrying about not ha...

So far I've only ever worked with the Michael's and the Funkins. Michael's are more durable but have a plastic-ey coating. good for cut outs, but have that crappy internal ribbing. Funkins are thicker which can give a deeper gray scale, but scratch easily since they are less dense.

Yup. Its funny. Since my process has changed its gone from starting off very cerebral then then ending with with very easy going and monotonous to being almost all cerebral. What I mean is that I used to spend so much time making the designs that when it came time to carve there was nearly no creati...

:D Here is a time lapse of the Beetlejuice carve. https://youtu.be/7TJRWrwfe4I I do make my own designs. I used to spend hours (and often up to weeks) fine tuning custom graphic image carve designs, like the ones that are a big part of the commercial side of this site, but I found that a lot of my w...

Thanks! I light them throughout the carve process and reduce the light in the room the closer I am to finishing. I use rotary switch lamp lights and LED C7 bulbs. You have to be mindful of how you handle the pumpkin while you carve with a light plugged in. Too many spins can cause the wiring to fray...

Hello! Just found your community from a post made on Reddit by Chuckwagon. (i'm babysmash3r over thar) I'm an artist who has been passionate about carving gourds most of my life. Here are some examples of some Funkins I carved this last year. https://i.imgur.com/8oggVES.jpg More of my work can be fo...
