Thoughts on creating large foam pumpkin

Has anyone ever thought of making a large foam pumpkin to sell? While Micheal's has a nice size pumpkin I think it would be great to have an even larger option. I was thinking that you would just have to take a mold from a nice large pumpkin (3-4 times larger than the Micheal's) then use some AB foa...

Re: How do you Shade Foam pumpkins?

Thanks for the advise and for the welcome. I pulled out my wives Dremel that she had never used and found it had a flex shaft and a bunch of bits.

I always just taped on the pattern then did the hole punching or used carbon paper and went over with a maker. This sounds easier and obviously it would stay put a lot be...
