Wife still works part time in a Doctor’s Office and mentioned there are still some who resist masks. I can understand the mindset, but in a doctor’s office?
She wanted me to make her a bigger sign. I suggested we make a little spokesperson to get people to focus on the signage.
Both of these are 3 inches high with the goal of piercing an inch or so into the pumpkin (seems stable in the apple sample).
Once we find a nice sized pumpkin larger than a softball and smaller than a soccer ball, I will stick a dozen or two of these into it.
I experimented with some orange on blue acrylic I had, but was underwhelmed.
The MDF came out better so I painted up some MDF and will get hopping soon as it dries.
They are symmetrical, which means after you have engraved the crown, you can flip them over, ignore the cut and engrave the other side for maximum effect.
OPTION: If the draft engrave time seems excessive to you, ignore it and just do the cut, then paint the crown as you see fit.
For now, I will pass this on to anyone who wants to make them or sees an improvement. Wife was iffy, saying it may be too soon, but I convinced her it is the right time and it also sends the mandatory Mask For Service message with a slight grin to remove the edge.
Have fun. Spot some pictures here if you find the perfect size pumpkin for these or modify them in some epic manner.
If you have a thickness problem with material used and cannot make the changes necessary, just ask here with the thickness you need and I will do what I can.
