Undead Pumpkin Progress

August 15th, 2010

Here are some photos of the “Undead” pumpkin during the construction phase. The design was drawn onto the papier mache shell then the eyes were cut out.

Lately I’ve been leaving the stuffing (newspaper or in this case polyfill) inside the pumpkin until all the work is completed, this prevents any sagging or collapse issues.

Recycled cardboard was used to make the facial armature then covered with additional papier mache strips.

Crumpled newspaper and aluminum foil were used to create the eyeball and the stem features a unique design similar to the one in the concept sketches.

Teeth made from homemade papier clay were added then additional clay was used to define the facial features.

I’m pretty happy with the progress although there is still considerable work to be done on the pumpkin and the body still needs to be created.
