Becki, Karlyn, and I tried our hands at dipping our own candles. We got wax, wicks, scenting wax (christmas cookie), and color (ivory). To be safe, we made a sort of double boiler out of our crock-pot and the tallest jar we could find. It wasn’t nearly tall enough to make full size candles so they were a bit shorter and fatter than we would have liked but they still burn. Next time we will probably try to melt the wax…still in a double boiler…but on the stove top. The crock-pot wasn’t quite hot enough. To facilitate the melting of the wax we grated the big block with a cheese grater to get it into little flakes and chips, don’t know it that was totally necessary but I had a good time grating the wax…it was very pretty. Like fresh snow. Pics to Come!
