Pumpkin sculpting

 I tried my first sculpted pumpkin last Halloween; it was crude, but I was pleased with the results.  This photo is of my second attempt, last night.  It, too, is crude. I need to refine my technique.  I like it, and I'm proud of it, but it's far from the dazzling, polished ones you can find online.
I also need to get some better tools.  I hope I can find some that don't cost too much.  My one ribbon sculpting tool started falling apart last night (I'll have to try super-gluing it, and maybe sharpening it.)  Reading on the internet also just taught me that a scouring pad would really help.


I'm eager to hear your thoughts!
