Candle Making Part II

Here’s part two, with even more photos! You’d think I was attending photography school or something, LOL! Well, in truth I am, in a way, but if you read my other blogs you already knew that. On to the candles!

I told you I would tell you about a technique I tried, and you can see it in this first picture. I poured the hot wax into the blue goblets, and swirled it around to coat the glass. The wicks we had were too short to be able to fill the goblets entirely, so I knew the coating would show. Just as I had hoped, when the candles are burned, the wax coating makes a nice soft glow. When I am through burning these, I just swirl the liquid wax to re-coat any spots that have melted.

And here are all the finished candles. You can see we made quite a few. It was great fun, and we will do this again.
