All the pieces of the undead pumpkin are now completed and drying.
The pumpkin dude consists of eight pieces that when joined together can be posed in a variety of positions.
Thin strips of newspaper were rolled into vines and papier mached to the arms and chest but in order to make the whole piece cohesive bundles of twine coated with latex paint will be wrapped around the arms and hands to hide gaps.
The vines will be painted to match the color scheme of the pumpkin which will be muted oranges, greens and browns.
Once the pumpkin is painted and sealed he will need to dry and air out a little before shipping.
