This year’s TVTA Halloween pumpkin…
Pumpkin Panda Pink Skater!
Well, that was fun, and a bit different than what my sketchbook initially suggested… it was supposed to be a bit more, erm, intimidating, but ended up a bit cute (not that I would like to see this thing skating across the floorboards in the middle of the night!).
Pumpkin Panda wasn’t so much a carving this year as a construction piece, with lots of fiddly setting up of slices of pumpkin to make the arms, legs and ears, and then adding the skate parts.
During the build, I saw that one of the pumpkins had started to rot inside … yeuch (note to self not to buy them so early next year)… some of the rotten arm and leg parts are luckily disguised by the skate pads! Then I ran out of white and red paint – she was supposed to be a pink panda, and so I had to change colour scheme to an orange/terracotta (note to self to check art materials next time!) … and then on completion I realised I had no witchy brew to celebrate (note to self to buy more beer) … and then when all was done it took me about an hour and a half to clear up the kitchen in time for dinner… eventually though, I was pleased with this year’s effort (and I got to wear my old Nirvana apron from art session days).
