The newest title in our How-To series is at the printers. It is the lead book that will cover more advanced topics in such a way that a beginner can do it. The book teaches the reader how to cast white metal figures, the most difficult part to make.

He walks through step by step how to do everything from metal choice through the final stage of painting. The neatest part though is that this is all done WITHOUT a spin casting machine. The book includes ordering part numbers and contact info for the supplier he uses the most.

If you can mold and cast a figure, you can make just about everything else in scale model building in the way of details and non-moving parts.

It is open for pre-ordering right now but they will not ship until mid to later in September, in the order in which the order is placed with one exception.

We will have a very limited number (under 3 dozen copies) at the National Narrow Gauge Convention this September in Augusta, ME where the author will be giving 2 clinics on the subject.

The webpage for the book with ordering info and samples of pages is:

While you are picking that one up, you might want to pick up Cameron Bryars’ book on how to go from a photo to a finished structure (which odds are you may need windows or doors or details for)

And also Nick Muff’s book on how to do Modular Interiors for Structures.

For our project layout the season will be late October.

With the various areas this will allow us to do seasons showing bare aspens, yellow and red aspens and as the elevation gets lower the traditional deciduous trees with the leaf raking piles and Jack o’ Lanterns getting ready for Halloween.

At the end of the Christmas season Hobby Lobby and Michaels were clearing out their small sets of 10 battery powered LED lights. I picked up a few for assorted projects. They were the Cool White LEDs so they have a naturally blue tint to the light which worked perfectly for lighting a Jack o’ Lantern.

I was looking for a quick and easy project and decided I would start the experiments for making them and picked up a pack of Sculpey Clay at Hobby Lobby. This clay is the type you make your item then bake it for a short time and it hardens.

With all these lights I had to do some projects that will use them besides building interiors and so the Jack o’ Lantern came to mind. Many artists have done paintings of this basic scene and I enjoy it a lot so am taking elements from them

Growing up I remember there were always large pumpkins in the 2-3 feet in diameter range so decided I was going to try for some in that range. I took a hobby knife and cut out a piece of clay around a ½” cube and rolled it into a ball. Some I made taller and some wider to account for the variations we always saw.

I put the batteries into the LEDs and turned them on so I could see if I had thinned the clay too much or not before I even started doing the faces.

Next I twisted the LED up inside the underside of the pumpkin trying to keep the entire thing pretty round.

I then took a set of jewelers’ screwdrivers and used one to lightly impress the lines that are on pumpkins into the clay and then used it to start to make the faces. To make the face I just had to make the clay layer thinner in those places and the light would shine through. I made the faces with the lights in the room low and the LED turned on so I could see when I had done enough for the effect I wanted.

At this time I also flattened the top of them for the areas the stalk attached.

On some I made a face on each side because I was thinking I could rotate them 180 degrees between visits by friends so they never will know which house will have which Jack o’ Lantern.

The photos on this were taken with a cell but it gives you the idea.
