Pumpkin etching

Post by Mushmouth » Sat Oct 15, 2011 8:46 pm

Just a few days ago I got a "pumpkin carving" dremel tool in the mail.
I took this as a hint that it is time to get to work!

This is my first attempt at pumpkin "etching" It really is a WHOLE
different ballgame....I really dig it...but at the same time...I STILL want
to put a candle in it and watch it glow!

I'm now scraping up all the loose change in the house to buy as many
pumpkins as possible...

:lol:

That is fantastic! I would love to have the artistic ability to do something like that.

Amazing job! Talent with subtraction art is always something I have been jealous of. I have great difficulty creating the proper space. I can add on to surface and build up a design but seriously fail subtracting. :lol: You did a fantastic job!!

Far too humble. That looks great. I actually have an extra pumpkin left over... and it's a thick one too. I think you just gave me an idea for what to try!

I would never be able to pull something like that off. Looks Great, too bad we don't see a lot of pumpkin pictures like this.
Now is not the time for fear, that comes later
