local pumpkins

We cannot find orange pumpkins here, so we are making the most out of the local variety.
First we taped the design onto the pumpkin. Then we used an awl to punch the holes along the design. With my ceramic making tools we carved the outline and interior features of the image, exposing but not cutting all the way through the flesh. We painted the design with a permanent marker and then added petroleum jelly to the exposed flesh. Looks nice with the candle inside.
Tomorrow we will make jack-o'-lanterns with three extra pumpkins we bought for this Halloween celebration.
