This book shows how to create glorious glowing lanterns and illuminated decorative displays, for Halloween and all year round: 20 wonderful projects are shown step-by-step. A section on techniques, shown stage-by-stage in easy-to-follow photography with clear instructions, makes carving beautiful pumpkins as easy as pie. It includes over 100 full-colour photographs and 20 templates. It contains information on different types of pumpkins and squashes, and a history of decorative pumpkin carving. The book opens with an illustrated guide to the wide variety of pumpkins and squash available today - with their characteristics and attributes all described for easy identification and selection. A glossary of carving techniques then takes the pumpkin sculptor through the uses of different tools and cutting methods. The 20 projects take advantage of the many colours, shapes, and sizes of this versatile fruit. You can cut out a simple geometrically patterned pumpkin or a romantic star-spangled, vine-tangled version. Clusters of tiny squash when carved out make a warm and welcoming window display, and a band of folk art roosters strutting around a large pumpkin will enchant adults and children alike.
