My version of iron man in a pumpkin.
I downloaded an image from the net and resized it. Then taped it on and hole punched an outlined onto my pumpkin. Using a jigsaw to cut the top and eyes was very fast and easy. Then using a router with a straight bit set to 1/2" I cut out the parts of the face I wanted to glow. Detailed clean up was done with a dremel tool. Check out other instructables for more details on how to carve, but I recommend using a jigsaw and router to save a lot of time.
Had fun using power tools to carve pumpkin. Made a bit of a mess with the router. Maybe with a little more practice, my sculpting will come out as good as yours did. Good fun! Thanks.
This looks really cool I want to try it. Where did you find the image?
Thanks. I loved the iron man movie so I just had to make this. Here is a link to the image I used.<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://images.buycostumes.com/mgen/merchandiser/30858.jpg">http://images.buycostumes.com/mgen/merchandiser/30858.jpg</a><br/>
Love it! I'm gonna give it try.
Thanks. One thing I noticed was that with the small eye openings not much air gets into the candle. So a battery powered light might be needed.
you could drill some air holes in the back side just to give it a bit extra air
