The Dremel Pumpkin Carving Kit allows fast, easy sculpting of spectacularly spooky jack-o'-lanterns. View larger.
If you're ready to carve a jack-o'-lantern with a more sophisticated design than the traditional toothy grin, the Dremel Pumpkin Carving Kit is for you. The kit's carving tool is not intended to cut through the pumpkin. Instead--after the gourd has been cut open and cleaned out--the tool is used to etch designs into the pumpkin's surface by removing layers of the skin. When a light is placed inside the jack-o'-lantern, it illuminates the design and produces a glowing effect.
Two Carving Speeds to Meet Your Needs
The hero of the Pumpkin Carving Kit is the 6-Volt Dremel Alkaline Cordless Rotary Tool. This carving tool offers two speeds--7,000 and 14,000 rotations per minute--to aid carvers with varying levels of experience. The low speed is ideal for gaining control over small and intricate designs and is more manageable for beginners. As you become more experienced with the tool, you can use the high speed for faster carving.
Lightweight and Cordless for Convenient Carving
The rotary tool is compact and weighs only 6 ounces, which means it's easy to carry and handle. As an added convenience, the cutting tool is cordless, so you won't have to worry about finding extension cords or power outlets. Just pop four 'AA' batteries into the rotary tool, and you'll be ready to etch your next eerie emblem.
High-Speed Cutter Accessory for Detailed Sculpting
In addition to the rotary tool, the Pumpkin Carving Kit comes with a Dremel 191 High-Speed Cutter accessory. The cutter has rounded edges and is ideal for intricate work. A handy black wrench easily secures the 1/8-inch high-speed cutter to the rotary tool, so you can make precise surface cuts and detailed designs.
Templates Make Carving as Easy as Tracing a Drawing
The Dremel Pumpkin Carving Kit includes 10 artistic jack-o'-lantern templates that range in level of difficulty: two ghosts, a witch, a haunted house, a scary cat, two snaggletooth faces, a vampire, a skeleton and a "Happy Halloween" tagline. Additional templates can be downloaded from the carving templates page at dremel.com.
Whether you follow the templates strictly or combine them to form your own unique creations, each one makes the best of your tool's options, so you can carve a jack-o'-lantern you'll be proud of. Just stick a template on the side of your pumpkin and cut away--the Pumpkin Carving Kit makes carving intricate pumpkin designs as easy as tracing a drawing.
Carve Gourds, Apples, Soaps, and More
Pumpkins aren't the only material that can be carved and decorated using the Dremel Pumpkin Carving Kit. Use the rotary tool to carve and decorate gourds or apples (the apples will shrivel to create a scary effect), or carve Halloween shapes out of bars of soap to add spirit to bathrooms and kitchens. The Dremel Pumpkin Carving Kit can even be used on artificial pumpkins--create designs on foam pumpkins and ensure the longevity of your Halloween decorations for years to come.
The Dremel Carving Kit is backed by a manufacturer's two-year warranty.
