I carved Worm Food in a funkin with a hot knife. It definitely does not carve as nice. The paint scorches on the funkins. I still carve my funkins with a saw now. Has anyone had trouble with the blade pulling out of the Versatool no matter how much you tighten it? I think I have wore out the collar on mineZombie Pumpkins! wrote:In my experience, the Versa tool blade was long enough to go through the thick bands of foam in the Michael's pumpkins... the 2011 version of their foamy, that is. I carved one recently, and while I definitely felt the resistance of thicker foam in those particular spots, I was still able to cut through.Euri wrote:Is the knife end deep enough to go through the thick seams on a Michael's pumpkin or the thicker wall of a Funkins?
Not so sure about Funkins though, Those can be even thicker, and the foam is more brittle. I don't even know if you can use a Versa tool with those. Anyone ever try?
Whenever I have to urge to run through my yard naked, I drink some Windex. It keeps me from streaking.
