Louisville, KY (WDRB) -- Big one's, small ones, Louisville artist Vince McCullough can take a regular ole pumpkin and turn it is to a piece of art.
You name it, he's carved it. Vince even won the National Pumpkin Carvers competition with one of his creations.
"I like the wow factor and seeing peoples faces when I come up with something a little bit different," McCullough said.
He was gracious enough to show us a few tricks of the trade.
A good Jack-O-Lantern starts with the pattern.
I took a stab at carving Jason from the horror movie Friday the 13th.
"There ya go," McCullough said. "Typically what I will do is hit one on either side and get the exacto knife and put a couple of slits in the paper, so that it doesn't buckle."
Vince tackled actor Vincent Price who stared in numerous horror films in the 40's, 50's and 60's.
"Carving a pumpkin is 70% to 80% prep work," he said. "The cutting is not that time consuming once the prep work is done."
The prep work comes by punching holes along the pattern. This can be done using any tool that's sharp. It's a tedious and time consuming process.
Once the pattern is outlined, it's time to start cutting.
"This is one area that is critical and that is the eyes. The eyes are so important to the feel of the pumpkin. If you make a mistake on the eyes, it can really compromise the entire look of the pumpkin."
And don't be afraid to be creative with power tools.
It took me about an hour to whittle away at Jason.
Slow and steady is the key to a respectable work of art.
