This one had really gnarly bumps all over it. So I knew I wanted to carve a face on it. But damn that was the hardest carve I ever did. The skin was so thick I broke two pumpkin knives. I was sweating like crazy and my arms were sore when I finally finished.
This one was an experiment in carving a pumpkin in reverse. Where you look through the shell. It reminded me of those dioramas we used to make in school.
