These are all amazing, excellent job! Assuming you start a few days out, how do you preserve your pumpkins? Maybe I'm just slow but each one takes me two to three hours so I can only do a couple per day leading up to Halloween. I live in the desert so it's really dry here. Wet paper towel, saran wrap, and fitting one or two in the fridge is about my only option ha ha!
It's pretty cool here in October. My process is put the face on with Saral paper and marker a week or 2 before I carve. I gut all my kins all at once around 10 use to be like 20. I use a pumpkin master serated edge scoop and a drill bit designed to thin the walls that I purchased off zombiepumpkins a few years back. Once I have my hollowed out corpses I carve.
Takes me about an hour a pumpkin but I choose a few easier designs to keep my motivation up. I did all the pumpkins in the second picture down of my original post in one day 12 pm-9:00 pm. I usually play horror movies or real haunting shows in the background. Thanks for looking hope I gave you some ideas.
