Creative candles

Continuing the discussion from :hocho: Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE- Creative Crafting:
Limberry,
What kind of candle container is this? I know you used silicone! But I already have this one! image|375x500

ooh gosh that looks rather intense :sweat_smile:
Looks like the kind you get a great big wick for - you’ll need to stick it to the bottom somehow :thinking: and I guess tie the top of the wick to a skewer or something so it stays straight.
Hold said skewer/ balance it on the top of the tin as you pour the hot wax in and let it set… and then it looks like a funky push-pop kinda situation to get the candle out afterwards :joy:
Again if you wanna have herbs spread throughout I’d pour the wax gradually allowing it to set as you go (try to keep herbs close to the edge away from the wick though as some get kinda excited :fire: :fire_extinguisher:)

I may be entirely wrong so hopefully someone else will zoom in to correct me :pray:t2: :sweat_smile:
Good luck! :heart:

I hear that @Jeannie1 ! I love to dance while making breakfast. One morning my Dad surprised me and got up early. I felt like I was 12 and got caught trying on my mom’s lipstick… Dad just laughed and ask “were you dancing?” I think the fact that I had to explain says it all.
