No matter how great your etch-a-sketch picture is, it's no fair not to let other people use it.

This guy must have the nerves and patience of a thousand Buddhist monks. Try drawing that many diagonal lines on an Etch-A-Sketch without grinding your fillings to dust... not an easy or pleasant task.

I like the pumpkins, but it seems to me the Etch-A-Sketch pictures are about 1000 times harder to do.

Question-
Would it be possible to:
1. Shake the E-A-S upside down to coat the screen
2. Take off the back and empty the grey stuff
3. Gut the scratching mechanism
4. Draw a picture by hand using a stylus
5. Maybe spray a fixative on your picture
6. Reattach the back
?

It seems amazing to me that, despite all the things I have taken apart in my life, I never tried an Etch-A-Sketch.
