Extreme Pumpkin Carving: 20 Amazing Designs from Frightful to Fabulous
Amaze Family and Friends-Take Your Pumpkin Carving to the Extreme! Halloween has become one of the most popular holidays in the U.S., and carving the family pumpkin is a life-long tradition for many. In Extreme Pumpkin Carving by Vic Hood and Jack A. Williams, you'll learn how to create the most amazing, never-before-seen designs to astound your Halloween guests. Extreme pumpkin carving applies relief carving techniques commonly found in woodworking and stonework to pumpkins. Starting with solid pumpkins (no hollowing is necessary!) extreme pumpkin carvers use simple household knives or woodcarving tools to create fantastic faces and scenes in the flesh of the pumpkins. With relief carving, you'll be able to add form to your pumpkin carving by creating actual cheeks, lips, eyebrows and more-instead of just cutting out solid shapes. This gives you an almost endless opportunity for creativity and unique expression, resulting in a one-of-a-kind Halloween pumpkin that will be the talk of the neighborhood!
