Fine Tuning

Use a small sanding tool to even out the details. For eyes, drill all the way through the pumpkin with a drill bit. The edges of the starfish are drilled with the same size bit. The suckers on the octopus were drilled with larger bits near the body and smaller bits near the ends of the tentacles. Correct any mistakes with orange paint.
