"If you made a list of all the things you could be thankful for, the list would undoubtedly be longer than your misfortunes".- Catherine Pulsifer

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

Thanksgiving has been celebrated as a federal holiday every year since 1863, when, during the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of "Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent father who dwelleth in the Heavens," to be celebrated on the last Thursday in November. In the rush towards Christmas, Thanksgiving runs the risk of being an afterthought, when we really need to stop, think about our blessings and be thankful for them.

 

Did you know?? For thirty years, Writer and Editor Sarah Josepha Hale promoted the idea of a national Thanksgiving Day, contacting President after President until President Abraham Lincoln responded in 1863. Over the next seventy-five years, Presidents followed Lincoln's precedent, annually declaring a national Thanksgiving Day. Then, in 1941, Congress permanently established the fourth Thursday of each November as a national holiday - and the rest is history!

 

The question is; how do we express our thanks, to whom, and for what? One way is through embracing family and friends, seeing the value in people and their presence in our lives. Material things cannot replace the human connections we need to uplift our spirits. We encourage you to pause in the spirit of Lincoln's proclamation, with Hale's determination, count your blessings and reflect on those before headlong into the rush of the holidays.



With that said, I would like to pause and take the time to thank God for all that he has bestowed on me. Thank you for all of you for your patronage otherwise we would not be here today. Most of all, I am thankful for all the friendships that have been built through the past years and the years to come. It does not stop there I have to thank my wonderful hardworking staff; Dave, Russ, Jack, Dennis, Bill, Jim, Cory, Don, Carmen and Steve, who make EHS what it is today. I have to take another deep breath and thank our show staff; Dave, Lynn, Dan, Ryan, Bill, Melissa, Jim, Chris, George, and Jean. Last but not least, I have to thank all of our past employees and friends who have helped over those 22 years, because I firmly believe without them EHS would not be here today. I am truly blessed!

 

Of course we are closed Thanksgiving day so our staff can enjoy their families. We will open at our normal time of 9am on Friday. Yes, we will be having some super specials if you want to participate on "Black Friday", but more so on Super Small Business Saturday. I walk a fine line here, I am encouraging you to pause and enjoy the season as mentioned above, yet we want to offer you some super savings on items in our store. If you stop by, make sure you check the incredible closeouts on the back table! For those that are too far away from us, you have an opportunity to take an additional ten percent discount on our website between Friday and Monday. All you need to do is use the promotion code of "Thanksgiving2017" to take advantage of it.

 

After selling out of most of our DCC inventory at Trainfest, we are now restocked and ready to offer you 20+ years of knowledge behind the sale, which happens to be our clinic topic on Saturday! If you are in the area stop in for a cup of Jo and say hi!


Modelers Tip:

Without going all scientific about diffraction and refraction and how light affects our perception of colors, here's a tip on getting good color when you're painting your valuable models. This primarily applies to airbrushing, but the concept holds true for any painting you do.

 

Painting certain colors is a challenge, because the amount of pigment in the paint is quite variable. From sad experience, the appearance of colors like white, yellow and orange (and even some darker colors) can be quite disappointing when applied over even a light colored primer. This can be especially true if you're doing a light colored separating stripe after finishing the main colors, since it will overlap both where they meet.

 

When painting a light or transparent color, consider a thin undercoat of white before laying down the finish color. You'll be amazed at what a difference this makes. To get white to really pop, we've actually put down a coat of silver first. The difference is well worth the extra time and effort, and it sure beats having to start over! And all of this is why we preach thinning your paint; you can always spray on more, but if it's too thick and still shows the sub-colors you're in a sad place. We want you to be a happy, courageous airbrush artist.

 

Our clinics continue on Tuesdays at 6:30pm and 1pm on Saturdays. As always, your input for the topics you would like to see would be greatly appreciated. Let us know what you want us to cover.
