This project has a little of carving work. The main tool for it is a CD marker.
To make the pumpkin buddies you will need:
1. A pumpkin itself. Pick up a couple of nice pimpkins you think they are suitable for the project. Decide on pumpkins of different shapes and colours.
2. CD/DVD marker to draw faces. I prefer to use a CD marker because it does not flow out to a smooth surface of pumpkin. A black one will be perfect.
3. A thai knife or a sharp knife (a kind of orange knives) to carve eyes details.
4. You also might need some accessories for you pumpkin buddies to give them a complete look. Continue reading the project description and you will get what kind of accessories I mean.
Before drawing faces with a CD marker scratch your design with a toothpick or a pen. Now you are positive about the lines you are going to draw. Remember that a CD marker is hard to remove.
Faces idea is inspired by paintings of www.spookyhollow.net
Step 1: Goody Pumpkin
For this cute face I have chosen a white pumpkin. This sort of pumpkins has a very hard skin. I was unable to cut it! So let's use our marker and give it an emotion.
I found a dead dragonfly in my home veranda. Think that was the best decoration for my little friend ))
