  1. I use wirekat's LED spotlights to illuminate my cutouts. I have never tried CFL's since I use LOR and LOR does not like CFLs.
  2. I agree with the use of transfer paper. I always prime the board before tracing and cutting out. That way, I can trace the entire pattern at once. After they are cut out, I fill in the cut edges of the plywood and prime the cut edge. As far as shading, I can't offer any advice there; once I cut them out, my wife takes over and does all the painting. When finished, she gives them back to me so I can coat them with polyurethane.
  3. If you are planning to use one next year, then buy your fog fluid this year after Halloween. I bought 30 bottles from Walmart at 74% off last year. It's not a big seller, so wait until they mark it down to at least 75% off.

  5. Today only, Dell Home offers the Sony 720p HD LCD Home Theater Projector, model no. VPL-BW7, for $399.99.

  6. How about a "nostalgic" window like the dept stores used in the 50's -- the window in "A Christmas Story" with the trains running. Perhaps you can find some 50-60 era toys to display in the window.
  7. My wife has done well over 150 cutouts for our display. She carries the paint color onto the cut edge of the plywood. She uses the paint pens for lines to accent details. She uses white and silver for black and some other dark colors, black for other colors. Alot of her color changes are done through shading and dry brushing though.
  8. Been ordering from them for the past five years and never a problem.
  9. I use monoprice all the time. Bought a 100 ft toslink cable with metal ends for $26 to link my computer to my surround sound system in a different room.
  10. Not too familiar with these monitors, but I know some have been experimenting with them to allow the viewer to select what songs play or to activate animations. Seems like a good price.

  14. Would a blower from a central air conditioner/furnace air handler work?
  15. Bet you have to pay extra for the external fuel tank and solid rocket boosters too!
  16. See if you can REALLY see your lights from space.
  17. Better get it now; won't last long! 32% off Space Shuttles at NASA Shop Now! 32% off + free shipping NASA has discounted the price of its soon-to-be-retired space shuttles to $28,800,000 each. With transportation to a major airport included in the price (does that count as free shipping?), that's the best deal we've ever seen on a space vehicle. According to the Press Association article, Atlantis and Endeavour are "up for grabs", and the new, Smithsonian-sealed Enterprise may be available for purchase. (Enterprise never made it to space.) If you're lucky enough to get a shut
  18. Isn't demonstrating artificial snow in Minnesota like trying to sell ice to an eskimo?:giggle: I should be nice though; I spent three years in Duluth compliments of the USAF. Thoroughly enjoyed the winters, once I became climatized. Was stationed there in July and think I was the only person wearing a heavy coat in the middle of summer. But then, I went directly to MN from Southeast Asia monsoon weather.

  20. We use wood cutouts extensively in our display and they have suffered no adverse affects with the snow machine. The cutouts are sealed with two coats of polyurethane, but I don't think that would make a difference if only a good quality exterior paint were used either.
