THE 3rd ANNUAL TXI STAR WARS PUMPKIN CARVING CONTEST

The 3rd Annual TXI Star Wars Pumpkin Carving Contest


It's that time of year again and to celebrate TXI will be having another Star Wars pumpkin carving contest  cheers


The winner will not be chosen until after the 31st so that everyone has plenty of time to participate if they want to .

Since pumpkins are not plentiful everywhere in the world , we will also accept entries made with watermelons , cantaloupes , honeydews or any other damn melon you can get your hands on - now even those of you who live in pumpkin deprived countries can participate  Razz

I would also like to recommend "Funkins" (or any other brand of fake pumpkin) to those who enter . The fake foam pumpkins are easy to carve and will last you a lifetime . I like them because I can use them year after year and it helps make the effort that goes into carving a pumpkin more worthwhile   Cool



The Rules :

#1) Your "Pumpkin" must be Star Wars related and have at least a small "TXI" carved , painted or drawn on it somewhere . Please be sure that the "TXI" is visible in at least one of the photos that you post   Wink

#2) Your entry can be carved , painted or decorated in whatever way you see fit . Be creative in whatever form you like - as long as it is a Pumpkin (or Melon) and its Star Wars related we don't care how you present it   What a Face

#3) You may enter as many different Pumpkins/Melons as you like   Very Happy

#4) Entries will be accepted from today through the 31st of October .



There will be 2 categories this year :

1) Traditional Style Carving

2) Sculpted Style Carving


Here are a few entries from previous years contests :

All Right ... what are you waiting for ?  Get your knives out and start sharpening , make your blueprints and get to work  indy

Well done Chris. clapping   Did you use a stencil or draw it free hand?

I always draw my cut lines with a sharpie, prior to carving. Especially here, if you're carving closer to the 31st, because its so much cooler.  Make sure to bring your pumpkin into the house for a couple of days, to warm up.  Or the sharpie doesn't stick, because the pumpkin starts to sweat.afro

The image is a stencil I downloaded and printed off. I then went over the print off with a soft pencil to create a transfer. I then flipped the image over and pressed the stencil against the pumpkin. Then I drew over the reverse side using a harder pencil to transfer the graphite image onto the pumpkin. It left a faint image on the pumpkin, which I then went over and tightened up free hand, using a Sharpie.
