Season Beginning Announcement

This season beginning comes with a big announcement!  Read on to learn about what’s next for Paulo Machado Pumpkins.

These were the first pumpkins I carved this season. It was a Sunday morning when I began carving the pumpkin shown on top.  As always, I always think I have more time than I actually do.  I thought I would have time to carve this pumpkin before noon.  At noon I would be heading out to the Turlock R.A.M. Farms Pumpkin Patch to do a live demonstration, the first of the season!  As usual I ran out of time… rushing out the door with a half finished pumpkin on top of my bench.  At the R.A.M Farms Pumpkin Patch things went well there.  My friend JJ helped me film my next video.  The pumpkin carving demo went well, I carved the second pumpkin shown above.  Some people came out and sat there for a few minutes at a time.  I always have a good time doing live pumpkin carving demos.

As this pumpkin carving adventure I am in right now keeps developing, I am starting to really think about where this could go from here.  There are a lot of people who wish they could do what I do and learn how to carve 3D pumpkins.  The reason most of them don’t start is because they have no idea where to start, what kind of tools to use, and how to do some features in the pumpkin.  I believe that I will put together a video tutorial that will teach people to carve pumpkins from the beginning to the end.  I will be working on putting together a series of tutorials from what tools to use to how to pick your perfect pumpkin, even how to carve the perfect eye on your favorite pumpkin carving.  It will take some time but I’ll announce the progress as it goes on.  I am really excited about it and I hope people will jump on this opportunity to learn how to carve 3D pumpkins.

Until then, I will see you soon.

Enjoy the Video:

This video shows how I carved both of the pumpkins the same day on time lapse.
