This has always fascinated me and I have tried to do it myself personally but the tediousness makes it so very difficult. I guess for now I will have to do with adoring these creations from afar. These are created by blowing out a contents of an eggshell by drilling a hole at the end of the egg at each of its tips. The egg must then be dried. A variety of eggshells can be used: ostrich, emu, rhea, goose, chicken, and a variety of others. These can even be purchased dried and ready to use from some internet outlets. The usage of a Dremel (or preferably a high speed drill such as a dentist tool) . You must also use a face mask and a ventilating system to avoid getting eggshell dust up into your respiratory system which can make you very ill. The stands that they use are just as intricately created by making something from scratch, using antique candle holders, and other unique holders. I have only tried using a Dremel but would love to get my hands on a high speed drill it would be great to create something so special.
These are some great inspirations for pumpkin designs. Goes to show with creativity and not always a carved pumpkin, pumpkins can make a great display with a few props. The painted design is also really nice and can show off your artistic talents as well. To paint a pumpkin: dry and paint with primer (all areas where you want to paint) and then paint with acrylics. Don’t forget to take a picture and send our way!
These remind me of when I was living in Huntington, WV. There was a man that lived in the area who literally carved hundreds of pumpkins with the help of volunteers) and made a huge attraction around Halloween time. It was always a big hit and definitely something you had to go see. The pumpkins in the picture are not from him but are very detailed carvings of pumpkins are just fascinating to look at.
