"Celtic Fire Horse Pumpkin"
December 6th, 2011
Pumpkin, exacto blade


Well. This is my last and final pumpkin for this year. :( I'll miss 'em. Though I did take my sweet time in getting around to make all of these. :XD: Hah. December is a little late for pumpkin season. But anyways: this is a pumpkin I made for another dear friend of mine. I promised I'd make her a pumpkin when we went out to buy pumpkins this year and now I've finally finished it! Once again, I probably had way too much fun with this; and I certainly spent quite a long time on it as well. :XD: Pretty much took me the whole day. :hmm: Not sure why, these things are generally pretty quick. But I digress. My friend really loves horses (and let's be honest, who doesn't?) so I made a fun, celtic-patterned fire horse. ;-) I hope she likes it! Enjoy!

And the photos for these all came out really, really well. I had trouble deciding which one looked best. :)

BYE-BYE PUMPKINS!!! I'LL MISS YOOOOOU!!!! :cries:

Any pumpkin tips?
I've always wanted to do a cool pumpkin like that.
What tools do you use? :)

Thanks! Well, use references, have a good idea of what you want to do, use red pen/or permanent marker to draw out everything first; and then use an exacto blade for everything else. ;-) (except for taking off the top of the pumpkin of course. I use a steak knife for that, generally).

Hmmm.....I did that but mine came out like crap. :D
How do you get only some of the pumpkin out?
I tried my rotary tool but the thing got away from me.....big stinking line right across the pumpkin. ha ha ha ha!
I might try a power drill.
Do you think I'm making a mistake by going with POWER? :D

I would just stick with an exacto blade. Small, delicate, and it gets the job done without ripping up the pumpkin. :nod: If you want varying degrees of light showing through, the trick to that is only cutting in slightly, and then take out only a small piece of the pumpkin. It's a bit difficult at first, but I'm sure you'll get the hang of it. :nod: And post a link to the pumpkin once it's done! I'd love to see it. :aww:

:) OK, small delicate cuts :)
:) Don't rip in to the pumpkin :)
:) No Power tools :)

Hmmm......that might be my problem. ha ha ha ha!

More patience.....OK.....I think I have to lower my expectations.
I'm going to try a bolder design with less details.

Yay for December pumpkins! :D

Again, the patterns are brilliant! This one seems so striking and bold, quite appropriate for a fire horse methinks. :D I love it.
