These things are brittle, messy and honestly they smell.
Can anybody else recommend a good foam pumpkin to use? I typically use the versa tool to do mine.
I have some much smaller ones from Home Depot that look like they are closer to the old ones, but I'd much rather stick to a larger pumpkin size.
There have been several kinds over the last couple of years and yes there is one "batch" that produced very lame kins -- brittle, smelly and the paint peels off -- I have had a few too.
There is a post around here somewhere that gives a review and what to look for -- for me --- I stay away from any of the pumpkins that do not have a date stamp -- the Michael's near me have both kinds, 2014 dated and non-dated --- I am having no issues with the 2014 dated ones
