I put a rubbermaid container or 3 behind my display. Fill with water and a couple of capfuls of bleach. Soak over night, every night, and they will last for 2 to 3 weeks. They always come out fresh and plump as the day they were carved. This works too for a severely wilted kin. Ditto, in fact I'm j...

..Even the new "cheapy" LED ones will work ok for basic "get you by" films outside as long as you realise they all have their limitations, outside films are cool when it's hot, make sure you can run some 1/2 decent 2.1 computer speakers (the .1 is for a dedicated sub bass to bring the explosions tog...

try some citadel paint if it'll key, & drybrush the model, add some wash to bring out those feathers especially, it'll change the whole character of the "block white" a wash & dry brush around the leg bracelet thingy will purge a lot of your silver overspill in that area. If you haven't done db'ing ...

A proper plague mask I think has been mentioned in the past when it cropped up in conversation, however the ones listed as examples are way off the mark of the originals & have morphed simply into bird masks, a bit like a story morphing with multiple tellings. The original format of the "gas mask" &...

CAN YOU LINK TO THE ACTUAL PRODUCT PLEASE!? .. "WANT" Ryan, we bake a lot, & the patterned rollers are both heavy & expensive typically.

Not good. If printing out to A4 initially use those plastic files, (they serve a purpose) but pick up some cheap-ass lidded plastic & foam coolers to store the stencils in, easy to carry, or even to confirm carving kt & kaboodle is accounted for & in place to avert a panic in season. Seal the lid wi...

A few roadside sellers / farmers etc have mentioned or been pushed toward a permanent roadside marker for their pumpkins, often sitting on a verge, with a need to be visible in overgrown grass, therefore weatherproof, vandal proof in some shape or form.

Simply hone the edges, find someone with a hobby drill, they come blunt as heck anyhow sonic, so you can't exactly ruin it, ..just give it a tickle with a grinding bit. (just determine the rotation in respect to drill & therefore easily defined edges to give the once over.
