Just looking for an update on the 2016 Michaels pumpkins. They were on clearance last week so I literally bought the last two large orange ones this store had that did not have diorama cut outs already in them. When I got them home I noticed that they seem really super hard on the outside. So I wondered how they are to carve and shade. Seems like it will be a bitch to work with. I have a huge backlog of old Michaels pumpkins still to use up and a few Funkins so I was just wondering if these are ok to bother with. Thanks!

It's a Coin Toss - I've had paint issues with them this year, Lost more Bits then I wish to mention. When the bit gets caked up at the bottom, the bit snaps. Talking about 1/32"s

Doh and Ken - Have had no Paint Issues with them. <----- = Bastards ! - LMAO !
I got one foot in the grave, the other on a banana peel !
