    Just wondering if anyone else on here makes candles? I have been making them for 2 years and it is really fun to do. But I dont know anyone else who makes them.

    I make them as gifts, mostly soy candles, I have a lot of wax for the pillar candles though.

    [​IMG]I like to make water candles - start with a store-bought candle, put it in a light bowl (Stick the candle to the bottom of the bowl with hot wax) and fill with 1" of hot wax of a different color; hold by the wick and twirl it so that when you submerge it in the water, it spins and the hot wax climbs up the candle. Add as many colors as you want.

    Fun from the '70s

    I have done soy and recycled wax candles. I mostly just reuse candle jars.
