Extreme Pumpkin Carving, part II

Tool photo.

These pumpkins are extreme, too, but not in the Tom Nardone sense. Ray shows you how to turn your pumpkin into a gargoyle worthy of Notre Dame. His tips are designed to bring out the inner artist, not the inner pyro, and if you follow his instructions, you'll end up with a truly beautiful relief sculpture. (Or something approximating it, anyway--I suspect that practice and talent have something to do with it to, but we can dream.)
