Happy Halloween from The Loft!!!
As an alternative to my carving or painting a pumpkin this year I tried something a little different. Pumpkin Etching is easy and a lot less messy.
I simply traced a design onto the pumpkin. I used a utility knife to score the area to be etched out, and then used a rubber stamp cutting blade to scrape away the pumpkin skin. If you don't have a rubber stamp cutting blade you can use a utility knife or even a steak knife. The orange is scraped away exposing the white rind of the pumpkin. The only mess to clean up are a few scrapings.
Have a safe and fun Halloween. Thanks for stopping by, and come back soon.
