Step 6: Powder

After you have completed your outline, remove your paper from the pumpkin but keep handy for visual aid.Then rub the powder over holes so that you can see your image more clearly.
I use this bucket scoop to clean out the pumpkin. It has a curved blade so it hugs the edge of the pumpkin and the metal blade scrapes it clean. http://krafttool.com/catalog.aspx?cat=91&subcat=115&prod=4568
