Looney Tunes Monsters

Since you already have Gossamer, what about the rest of the monsters from Looney Tunes? There's Witch Hazel Count Blood Count, Mr Hyde and Bugs, Sylvester and Tweety after drinking the Hyde potion.

Funkins Tall Giant

Does anyone happen to know the dimensions of the Funkin Tall Giant Pumpkin? I have one at home and want to adjust and print the pattern at work, but not sure of the size...

Thanks!

Re: Found the Best Bits (To Date) For Shading.

I ordered a couple sets and got them last week. They are excellent! Almost too good, I almost went too deep when I started.

Re: New From Funkins - Carvable - X-MAS Balls

Thanks everyone! All the carves look great.

These will get done after Christmas and be part of next year's decorations! I need about a dozen more to go around the tree in my yard.

Re: New From Funkins - Carvable - X-MAS Balls

My ornaments arrived today. I have a question for those of you that already carved yours, how did you attach the pattern? I normally glue mine on and that looks like it will work, but at $32 a pop, I don't want to take chances.

I hope funkins will sell these in stores next year.

they look great! What did you use for lighting??
Thanks. I used Christmas lights wrapped around the tree and just loosened the bulbs on the lights that weren't being used.

Re: Who carved the half pumpkins?

I agree with Doh. The half pumpkins are not re-purposed from damaged full 'kins. The ribbing in back is different. As to blades, since the patterns I carved in the half 'kins were basic, I just used an X-acto knife, and carved while watching TV.
