What a miserable day today has been; nothing less than non-stop rain.. Although I must admit, I do really enjoy listening to the sound of the rain falling on the conservatory roof. I could listen to that for hours. Today was also the day our little puppy Doug lost his balls. Yep, he just had a bit of his man-hood taken away, poor little thing. So as today was one of those waiting-days, where you're just waiting for the call from the vets to pick up your dog, I didn't fancy doing too much, so I decided on doing a bit of pumpkin carving. - Although there really wasn't much carving involved at all.
I'll admit to you now, this is not the best pumpkin you have ever seen. In fact, it's not even half good. But I thought I would share it anyway, because why the hell not, things aren't always perfect. This little pumpkin is meant to resemble a kind of zombie-mummy sort of thing. It looks better in the darkness.. That really says it all. Grant said it reminds him of 'bloody face' from American Horror Story. That comment is far too kind, I wish he resembled 'bloody face'. I know this pumpkin-making is rather premature as Halloween isn't for another couple of weeks, but what the heck! I break all the rules ;)
This was the simplest pumpkin ever to create.. mainly because the actual carving of the face doesn't really matter as you won't really see it. I used a bandage (obvious) wrapped around the pumpkin, secured by cello-tape, and finished off with a bit of red paint very roughly smeared across the front to resemble blood.
To state the obvious, be careful of bandage near fire. Don't leave unattended.
