Pumpkin Carving

So it's almost Halloween…and I need pumpkin ideas. Keep in mind that I'm a kid and I'm not that good. I've looked only for ideas online but haven't found any. The picture is what I did last year (i wasn't done though) but I'm looking for something a little more advanced then it.

Well I got a little hyped up for halloween and I carved the first pumpkin for this year :D. I think it came out pretty great. (unfortunately it will probably wither and die before halloween in two weeks)

Pumpkin-carving resource

I know it's early, but there's no harm in being prepared, and, who knows, you might want to practice? I came across the Extreme Pumpkins website via Randy Cassingham's This Is True* newsletter. It's full of photos of past years' pumpkins, as well as free patterns and pumpkin-related tutorials (such as how to illuminate your carvings with road flares, and the proper use of power tools when carving). Go, be inspired, and then come back and show us what you made. *If you are afraid of thought-provoking journalism, do not subscribe to the This is True newsletter.

Carve and cast moulds

Hello I was wondering if anyone was interested in buying the molds I created to make the cast and carve chocolates in my instructable.  https://www.instructables.com/id/Carve-an-cast-chocolate-treets/ It means you don't have to go through the pesky business of carving or making our own molds to end up with some fun chocolates.. or you could use something like plaster and end up with some nice casts.

Gothic & Sacred Heart Pumpkins

I carved around thirty different pumpkins for the Halloween carnival this year. While the traditional jack-o-lanterns and extreme pumpkins were popular. Two of my favorites were these departures from the more typical carvings. The Sacred Heart Boo pumpkin was inspired by a Mom tattoo that I saw recently. The Gothic Boo pumpkin was started with a small bat cookie cutter which I used to transfer the design to the pumpkin with a small mallet. I found a gothic type style that I liked and printed it out and used a awl to transfer the design to the pumpkin. Finally, the bat shape cutter was used to punch holes on the back side to throw bat light patterns on the wall when lit. These sold the day I cut them, so I did not get the chance to take night photos. Regarding technique - The carvings where made with an Xacto saw blade, small wood gouges and lino-cutters (print block cutters).

how do I straighten wood?

It's me again and I'm finally gonna get started on my bass project soon after I'm done with my first semester of college. I found all the wood out in the desert and I'm ready to build. I do have problem though when I found the wood it was straight-ish but good enough to work with. I picked up the wood I like most of it mesquite. I brought it back to las vegas and had to ignore it for awhile because I had two weeks of school left and of course I have to study for finals. so now its already getting cold (what a surprise) and the wood was still outside in the cold which I now know is a NO NO. so now I have a few days of school left and my wood is bent and some parts are twisted. not severely but not straight enough to carve. so now that you've read my rambling do any you fine weirdos and robots know a way to straighten out wood? sorry I don't have a picture of the bu I do have picture of the concept.

Precision Fiberglass Wood Lettering Cuts

A couple three or four years back I used a retired surfboard to illuminate my house address numbers. Cutting the fiberglass was a nightmare; it splintered, cracked and was nothing remotely close to precise or clean. I ended up cutting an open area in the deck of the surfboard [section where you'd typically stand]. I then used a jigsaw to carve a design of wood with address numbers inside. As an artist, I wasn't impressed with the outcome, but many, many others who've seen it seem to love it. Including those who purchased the house at our previous address. At any rate, I've been commissioned to create another, similar project. SInce it's going to be for someone else I'd really like it to be perfect; especially since my name will be associated. My question is, what tools are available [reasonable cost not an option -few hundred dollars give or take] in order to cut precision alpha-numeric characters in fiberglass or 1/8 to 1/4 wood completely through? I'd like sharp, nearly 90 degree angle on the characters/numbers. I've already tried a scroll saw on the fiberglass with less than desirable results. And the edges and corners were nothing close to 90 angles. My number '5' looked like the letter 'S'. Any help from you guys will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Four sculptors will compete in the Multi-Block Classic event, which involves carving over 700 cubic feet of ice in under 132 hours. Additionally, we are bringing one archivist who will record and write about our experience. We seriously consider Ice Art as an opportunity to enhance our artistic knowledge and ingenuity, as well as to positively impact the communities involved.TEAM:Jesse Hensel, Team CaptainEric ReyesStephanie InagakiJesse WaltonLaura Rogers, ArchivistCONTEXTIce Art brings together communities from various countries -consistently from Canada, Norway, Russia, Japan, and China - and at all career levels including professional artists, students, and local residents. Each team has a different approach. Some will celebrate traditional craft while others will pursue edgy artistic expressions. Some will produce monumental forms while others will carve small-scale objects. For six long days, the SFAI team will work intensely together in the harsh Alaskan environment. During morning and evening meals they will reenergize and discuss different carving techniques and landscape traditions with other participants. This experience will undoubtedly benefit those in the competition in addition to educating and entertaining audiences worldwide.For general information about the competition visit: http://www.icealaska.com/COMMUNITY PARTNERS1.

Seeking advice: I'm building fake snow sculptures/figures and want your ideas please!!!

Hi all, (I had posted this question in a different forum but I think this one is the more appropriate one for such questions - thank you CAITLINSDAD for your response, included below) I'm making a series of life-sized figures for a show; they are meant to look like they have been carved from packed snow. The designer has purchased mannequins and would like me to sort out a way to make the clothing stay rigid and the final scenic paint coat to look like snow. I'm seeking your thoughts and ideas, here's what I have so far: 1) wrap blanket foam and chicken wire around the arms,legs and torso and then put the clothes on the mannequin, cover the clothes in epoxy resin or fiberglass. 2) same as above but use FGR Hydrocal 50 instead of resins. 3) expandable spray foam the body and then carve back to sculpt the clothes. 4) forget the mannequins and instead carve the whole figure out of foam blocks. 5) for the final texture coat use spray glue and flocking If you have better ideas, tricks or techniques I would love to hear them please! I'm attaching a reference image I found online - this is pretty much what I'm trying to achieve. Many thanks, Damian. ---------- FROM CAITLINSDAD: "I think you would be fine in creating any armature that would be structurally sound since it will be covered over, flocked or painted. Maybe try a drywall compound sprayer to coat the piece. You can experiment with the styrofoam texture "orange peel ceiling look " additives to give it the snowy icy look. Good luck."
