Thanks for the warm welcome! I've not left the forums, honestly. I've been scouring them for tips and tricks, enjoying all the minions photos of carves and decorations and just generally soaking up the knowledge. I've also not stopped carving yet. I cleaned out most of the craft stores in my area an...

Very nicely done. Your carves are, of course, perfect and I love the backdrops and props. That’s something I certainly need to work on for next year. Or maybe sooner... I’ve not stopped carving! I’ve knocked out two dozen foamies since Halloween!

Thanks! I have several tattoos and for years I’ve had that blank space around my wrist with no good ideas to fill it. I’m pleased with the results. :thumbsup:

Hey guys. A few days after Halloween I visited my tattoo artist, pointed him towards the Grinning Jacks patterns, and asked him to whip up three original Jacks drawing inspiration from Ryan's patterns. No offense at all to Ryan, his artwork is amazing, but my tattoo guy is an accomplished artist as ...

Thanks again Ryan. You’re a stand up guy who does great work. Judging by the designs you produce I’d imagine you and I would have a lot to talk about before we ever got around to pumpkins. I appreciate the warm welcome. I only regret getting here so late. Like a lot of people I’d carve a pumpkin her...

Thanks, Ryan! You guessed correctly. Many of those are personal favorites and several others were by request of family and coworkers. I also carve my foamies exactly as you do. Michaels and the sort you find at Target, Lowes, Walmart etc. I’ve started working on with my new Versatool. The Fun-Kins I...

I discovered ZP about 10 days before Halloween and immediately became a fan. I signed up, printed my patterns and got to work carving. Also, I ordered a t-shirt and hoodie from the shop. I’m a collector of cool t-shirts of things I’m a fan of and there are certainly some cool designs available. Anyh...

Excellent job on the reals and the foams. Do you have a flex shaft for your dremel? That is much easier to use than the dremel itself. Thanks. I do have a flex shaft. I think my issue is just general inexperience with the tool. I’m not sure what speed I should be working on for example. If I had mo...

Thanks guys. These were carved over several weeks and I did have quite a few displayed on Halloween but we didn’t see hardly any trick or treaters. A lot of these were passed out to friends and coworkers too. I’ve been working on foamies a lot the last week and I just cannot get the hang of the Drem...

Hey guys. New user. I got into carving last year and only just found ZP the week before Halloween. Better late than never though. :D Here are my efforts for this year. I need to get better at photography but I’m pretty pleased with most of them. https://i.imgur.com/Ez7hiVy.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Xp...
