First Pumpkins of the year.

And thanks to StuatP i finally got a couple of foam pumpkins from Germany so when i finally decide what to do on them i will stick photos up.
Looking at them though it looks like they could be fairly easy to make but what i need to do first is find a good spray foam that would work then make a mold of a pumpkin at a decent size and see what happens but i will let you know how it goes.
Simon.

Hey Simon,

Great carves (as usual). If you start making them nice and cheap let me know how will you.

I would also have a go.

Did you ever uave a go at the ostrich egg by the way? Qnd how are the dwarves coming on?

Thanks Guys.
StuartP: I still haven't done the ostrich egg but i will do in the next month as i know what i will do on one of them just something for my mother.
Dwarves are coming along slowly 3 down 4 to go.
I'll certainly let you know if i ever make the foam ones myself but i am seriously thinking about it.
Simon.

I can't believe you took on the Looney Toons pattern on a real pumpkin. Great job!

Thanks Pumpken, it took about 6 hours to do and is probably the longest i've taken on a pumpkin and it wasn't a very large one neither, pattern was printed at 7 inches tall but as i had done the first looney toons one with just the 4 characters on it i just had to do the latest one.

Well finally got round to doing my Ostrich egg and came out not to bad. Still have to find a way of getting the carved part a bit smoother but it was a first attempt at the Ostrich.
Only problem was there was a lot of dust off it but i did most of the carving at work in my cabin and good thing was as it was such a small area the dust didn't have far to go. Bit of cleaning at the end though but was better than doing it at home with more area for the dust to go.
Was fairly easy to carve due to the tools i used but i still need a good smoothing burr even the smooth white stone one was not smooth enough but that was just the way i used the tool, couldn't get it flat enough on the shell to smooth it out so there are a few small lines on it which i used to my advantage to make it look like the "grain" of the flower going in the right direction.

Cool!

I might have to have a go at my chicken eggs now that they are all laying. I have noticed that my chickens eggs are a lot thicker than store bought. That will help. Two even have a nice green color.
