Well, after posting about 50 questions and getting everyone's opinions on colors, I finally finished my Poloron Carolers. I've posted the before and after pics below.

I'd like to personally thank Carrie and Joe for all of their help and countless PM responses.

Does anyone have ideas on making the heads a little brighter? I have 7 watt bulbs in them already. They look ok in person, but the pictures are very dark.

Those turned out very nice! Great job! I have found that 15 watt candelabra bulbs are the same diameter as a c-7 and fit well and are just right. I use a lot of them in my molds. Tom

Thank you for all of the nice compliments.

Tom - I might give those bulbs a try. I put the molds out today and they don't look bad from the street at night, but I think a little brighter might be better.

Thanks again,
David

Tom,

I tried your idea about the 15 watt bulbs and they look a lot better. Thanks a lot for the tip!

The higher wattage bulbs won't hurt the sockets, will they?
