PostSubject: ILLUMINATION TIPS   Sun Aug 31, 2008 11:43 pm

Here are a few tips for lighting up your carving this Halloween.
• When using a candle, cut a hole on the upper, back part of the pumpkin. The hole will work like a chimney by allowing the candle's heat to escape.
• If you create an opening from the bottom of the pumpkin (versus the top), attach the light source to the bottom lid or small plate and place the pumpkin over it. Try drilling a hole to secure the candle. This provides a little more stability.
• A flashing light, like Pumpkin Masters Ultimate Strobe Light™, is ideal for spooky pumpkin carvings. The lighting effect delivered by 5 flashing bulbs brings the pumpkin to life.
• I also recommend a pumpkin light from the pumpkin patch. It's the lights for the funkin type pumpkins. These work really great especially for taking photos.
