  4. The (not so) Great Pumpkin

    I made this for my 6 y/o granddaughter. I started with a nasty looking hunk of catalpa I've had in the shed since '08. I painted it with watered down acrylics, I wanted the grain to be seen. The eyes, nose and mouth were cut out with a dremel, then burnt. Catalpa hollow form , 6" x 6" ...

    It's not wood but here's my first attempt at a pumpkin since maybe the late 70's or early 80's when using just a kitchen knife (definately easier with carving tools).
