I've tried to mimic to translucent technique that people use on really detailed Jack O' Lanterns, such as this:
However, whenever I try I either can't get the husk thin enough, or I go too thin and bust through.
Are there certain tools that help with this? I have a lot of carving tools.
Do certain pumpkins work better? How should I select one?
Or is this about lighting? Do I just need brighter candles/lights to shine through the the pumpkin?
The lighting isn't great here. This was my last attempt last Halloween. I wanted the teeth to be translucent. As you can see, only a couple bottom teeth have any semblance of being see-through.
