  • I carve them. The books tell you exactly how to do it and the degree of difficulty on the patterns themselves. My GD wants to try one by herself this yr. I usually buy between 8-15 lbs. Just a good medium size. We began using them when our boys were teens. It's kind of cool doing it with grandkids now.

  • isismoon that is a great freehand. I wish I was that talented. No artsy talent is the very reason we use pumpkin masters. My sisters free hands like you.
