This is something I've been longing to try... I'm sick and tired of throwing out left over candle stumps, and for the last months I've been saving up for a candle making experiment. In other words, this is pure do-redo as all the candle material is reused. Only the wicks were bought new (and the two candle molds I used, which I can use over and over and over!) The candle color is a result of the white and red stumps I mixed together, no new pigments were added.
Aren't they pretty! A comment on the scale: don't be fooled by the proportions of the candle to the left, I know it looks like a tiny tea light, but it's really some 5 or 6 cm across. The mold is a lot higher, I just didn't have enough filling for it all and settled this for now. Next time will be a different colour, and I'll try to make at least one really tall pillar candle.Yay, this was fun recycling! =D
