How-To: Carve astounding art-pumpkins

We wrote about Ray Villafane’s pumpkin carving tutorial several years ago, but it’s worth linking to again. We were reminded of Ray’s astounding squash-sculpting mojo when our most-awesome Director of Marketing and PR for Maker Faire, Bridgette Vanderlaan, sent around a gallery of Ray’s work through internal email. Even if you don’t have Ray’s artistic chops, I bet, if you carefully follow his instructions, what you get will be a heck of a lot more “high-brow” than triangle eyes and a jagged mouth. [Thanks, Bridgette!]
