I'm going to talk to you about carving the more detailed parts of your pumpkin. So once you have carved out the blocks it is time to go for the more detailed areas. Like the curves in the mouth and also these little parts where you didn't get quiet close enough to the line. So in order to do this you are going to need a smaller knife. Having straight edges help in general having straight edges help because it gets through the tough skin. So with this you are going to have to be really careful cause this out of all of the parts this is where you are more like to cut your self because this you are focusing really hard on cutting and getting through this rather then you are acutely using the knife. So always remember to cut aways from your self and try to smoothly go along the lines that you drew. Remember to cut outside of the lines so that way you have less to clean when you are done. Now if you have a part like this where you don't really have to cut to much but you still want to get rid of the line, you can cut in a angle so that you mostly get the skin off. So once you have the details carved clean out the inside again just to make sure that there is nothing else floating around in there. Then what you can do is from the inside clean out little parts that are hanging like here for example there are these pieces that are still hanging off but you just got to make the design look a little less clean. So with a knife or with a spoon or whatever you have around just cut the openings a little to make them cleaner. When the inside of you pumpkin is cleaned out it is time to wash off the lines. Again take a sponge with a little bit of soap and water and just scrub off the lines.
