Take your Pumpkin Carving to the Next Level!
Starting with solid pumpkins (no hollowing is necessary!), extreme pumpkin carvers use woodcarving gouges and knives to create fantastic faces and scenes in the flesh of the pumpkins. Extreme Pumpkin Carving – The style of carving presented in this book is a relief-carving technique, a presentation that has been borrowed from stone and woodcarving. Relief-carving relies on perspective and shadows to develop the image and provides more opportunity for creative options. With this technique you will be able to add form to your pumpkin carving by creating actual cheeks, lips, eyebrows and more, instead of just cutting out solid shapes.
