I once saw this tutorial on a website for "Crayon-Drip-Candles" They were white and had little runny bumpy drips of colored crayon streaming down. Unfortunatly, that site deleted the tutorial, and I cannot find any other instructions. Can anyone help?

Well my firends once decoraed a vase for em tht way...if i remember correctky she just meleted the crayons by holding them over like a lighter and so the drips fell on the vase and eventually solidified...so i guess you could apply the same technique to make the candle!

I would just like to thank the academy for nominating me......

I'm supposing that is exactly how you would make the candle, by dripping the crayons itself on the candle.  I did this with a jar recently as part of a gift.  Also, you can make candles from crayons themselves.

hehe, I had one that I worked on all through middle and high school.  It started with a coke bottle with a candle stuck in the neck.  I would hold crayons over the flame and they would run down the bottle in drips.  Eventually it built up to the point where I can no longer see the bottle, or even the shape of it.  It's still at my parents house.  I was inspired by my mom's old stories of chianti bottles (the ones with the baskets on them) used for drip candles at coffeehouses when she was a teen.  I also saw a HUGE one in Woodstock, NY, at a candle store.  It had been started almost 15 years earlier, just a candle on a empty wood plank.  It was over 6 feet tall when I saw it, it was amazing!

This was like my favorite activity when I was 15. Everyone's right, you just melt the crayons over a burning candle and let the wax drip on the candle you're decorating. Then you can hold the decorated candle up to the burning candle, and all the colors will swirl together all pretty.
