Wolf Head Lamp by KatherineReedKS Wolf Head Lamp by KatherineReedKS
Every Halloween my family and I make a pretty awesome pumpkin. I carve out a cool original design.You can see them and use them for free here [link]). The designs do not belong anyone else but we love when people download the pattern and send us pictures of how they turned out :)

Every year I spend hours on a pumpkin and then have to watch it be thrown away within a few days. I decided that for once I actually wanted to be able to KEEP the work I had done so I made a permanent one out of clay :)

I actually had some problems with cutting out the pattern because clay is NOT a pumpkin and when ever I would cut one side out the other side would refuse to itself, meaning, I could really only have half cut out at any one time. It did this because my carving tool was a bit too thick so I tried an exacto knife and it would drag and sag the clay and look weird. I ended up just cutting out every piece with my handy dandy pumpkin carving tools! They were thin enough not to reattach the other side and the serrated blades made it so it wouldn't drag.

I had such a hard time with this one XD I always throw my pottery so to handbuild one out of huge slabs of clay gave me a run for my money XD I thought it was too funny to sit in a ceramics room with 20 other people as they watched me use my pumpkin carving tools on a pot XD

It was ok, I knew them all so it was pretty much all friendly teasing because I had asked them if they had any idea what I could do and didn't think of anything and they thought it was hilarious when I brought in my 3$ carving tools XD

Well you 'showed them'. :giggle: Did a better job with those than the actual tools! What were the actual ones supposed to work with, pieces that weren't so small?

I guess, if something were flat laying down on the table the normal knife would have worked but I had to have it already constructed because it would be to weak to do it afterward so I had to work with it horizontal. Its honestly the only time I've really had an issue like that :P

It woulda been too weak because it had the center cut out of it then? That makes sense, thank you! (And thank you again for answering the nosiness. XD)
