This has been modified, thus the links should now work

I bet someone already posted this, but I couldn't find it, so sorry if that is the case.
I made some candles out of crayons, old white half burned down candles, and paper bathroom cups (well, glass cup for the third one).  You just melt everything down and pour away.  It's kind of cool because you can make any color you want, well with in the 96.

The pictures worked for me after I added the '.jpg' at the end.

Great job! Did you use any special mold to get the colors so even, or did you just wing it? For some reason this makes me thing of those Sand Art projects, and mine never came out that well  Smiley

no i just poured the next color on top when it was ready. however when i poured the orange on top of the purple, the purple melted through to the top a bit, i guess maybe i didn't wait long enough for it to cool before i added the orange or something.

I love the glass you used for the big candle! I'm going to have to look for one like it next time I'm at the second-hand store.

Those look great, and I have a lot of broken candle sticks that could use a make-over.  I'll have to try this in the next few days.
