This year I told myself I was not creating anymore papier mache pumpkins…none, nadda, zip, zero. As always my plans change during the course of the year…need to be flexible.

The pumpkins used the trash bag method, the cardboard strip method and the face techniques use for DEMONIKUS. The tutorial will be available after Halloween, for now […]

The next step involves colorizing with some various color of oil stains…this is sort of experimental, something I’ve never done before. If you are […]

Scott’s name was randomly drawn from over 90 entries scoring him a custom built pumpkin of his liking. Scott’s concept was a “ground breaking, undead pumpkin, pushing itself out of the ground with its […]
These three pumpkins were started a couple of weeks ago and are the result of mixing three of my different projects into one…the trash bag pumpkins, the new cardboard strip pumpkins and the screaming ½ skulls. The progress so far is promising…these guys will eventually have eyeballs and get painted with an airbrush.
