Flaming Pumpkins – Old Hag and El Chupacabra

Here’s some more of my pumpkins that met a fiery end last night. As usual, the flames were pretty high and quite spectacular. I have to say the pumpkin was less than cooperative. I thought I had thinned the walls down sufficiently, but it was still quite difficult to cut through. The rind was a bit more fibrous than I had anticipated. It didn’t lend itself to well to my cutting technique.

In the end I think it all worked out. I like these two patterns. They were pretty straight forward and the cuts were relatively easy. Strangely, El Chupacabra bares a striking resemblance to my dog…

Anyway, here a couple more of my pumpkin cutting adventures for this Halloween season.

Time to start things off with some flaming pumpkins

This is my first batch of the year and I have to say things went quite well. I got some spectacular effects and had a massive 6 foot flame shooting out the top. This one really went off and lasted for nearly an hour. I went all in and bought the expensive mega rolls of toilet paper to stick in there. They claim it’s like 4 rolls all wrapped into one! :) Judging from the burn length, they might be right.

I did make a slight change to the pumpkin burning process and now the pumpkins are nestled in a fire bowl for safe keeping until they meeting their ultimate Halloween destiny. It works really well actually and keeps the home owners association at bay, and that’s really what it’s all about.

So here we go, let the pumpkin burning begin!

My Favorite Pumpkin

It’s time to pick the best pumpkin out of the patch. This year I think I cam up with two really great shots.

First off is my flaming Grotesque Gargoyle bathed in flames. This picture just looks amazing.

And for my second favorite is one I took just tonight. Just like in the movie, Mr. Stay Puft meets a rather fiery end!


I hope you had a great Halloween, I know I did!

Halloween Death Toll – The Big Finale

Well, that’s the end of it, Halloween has come to an end. The last of the pumpkins embers have burned out and it’s time to put the decorations away. It’s been one hell of a great time though. I’ve carved plenty of pumpkins this year and taken some insanely cool flaming pumpkin photos.  Here’s the latest batch I did just a few minutes ago. Sure, it’s November, but it’s never to late to set a pumpkin on fire! This gallery is really worth checking out since the flames just about got out of control.
