Oh these all sound fun from what I've read. Why no photos to share? I for one would love to see your pretty work!

Good idea! Next set I make I'll try to get some photos for you! They're all be brown, ivory or white... but they'll still be pretty! Well.. hopefully! LOL :lol: :mrgreen:

I usually make tarts, votives and single colored jar candles.

Here are my first attempts at layered candles. Scented with Peppermint Stick

Nice looking candles! You did a fantastic job with the layering! I bet they smell delicious! :mrgreen: My only comment would be on the zinc core wicks. Make sure to burn those with lots of ventilation, smoke from the zinc can cause migraines.

THANKS for the tip! I did not know that. I had bought some wick sample packs and testing all the different types out. It really is interesting to see how different they all burn.

I love trying new wicks! I'm hoping to try some of the newer type wooden ones sometime soon. When I first started making candles I had zinc core wick and it took us a while to figure out that that was what was causing my migraines. We first figured it was the fragrance, but we asked a lady at a Lewiscraft store (used to be an awesome craft store chain, but I think Michael's killed it :( ) and she had read that the zinc can migraines. She even gave me the book for free! I miss little shops like that!

The molds, liquid dye and scents are all from Rustic Escentuals. The wax is from BrambleBerry!

Very pretty candles! I would love to start making them myself but that is gonna be in a later life. Hestey, the wooden wicks are really neat. I bought a candle that had one and it crackles as it burns. It is faint but if the house is quiet, you can hear it.
