Those are so beautiful! I love the vibrant rainbow colors, they're gorgeous! Just curious - what did they smell like?

the name of the scent is something nondescript like "rainforest". they smell subtle and pretty, maybe a girly sandalwood?

thank you for all the kind words! it's nice to feel appreciated by such talented people, especially for a craft that was so time consuming. (my friend was VERY thankful, though.)

the candle holder was fun to do. i took her initials and designed that pattern, and then created a stencil for it out of masking tape before etching. she didn't see it was her initials at first--realized over a week later! made me feel good:)

i doubt i'd sell the candles, but if you want to work out some sort of personal swap (it would have to be next month for me) i would LOVE to--pm me. i <3 personal swaps.

hey check it out--i just made sushi candles from a diy kit:

i got the kit on etsy. how cute are these?

Those are marvelous!  You've inspired me to try this. I hope mine turn out as nice as yours.

Those are really cool! What knid of wax did you use? I made oj can candles a long time ago, but it was with friends, so I'm not sure what we used. We filled the cans with ice, and then poured the melted wax over it, and stuck them in the freezer. Once it's hardened, we let them sit out, and the ice melted, leaving hollow shapes. It's hard to explain.  Tongue

the sushi kit is beeswax. i bought the kit on etsy 'cause i love diy kits. and it's SO EASY to do i totally plan to buy more beeswax and continue on my own. what a cute gift!! and so fun to display with chopstix and stuff:)

as for the pillar candles, i can't remember exactly what i used. i bought the large solid block of wax at michael's--whatever that stuff is. btw--i injured myself VERY badly a couple of month ago while cutting wax carelessly. the safest method is to buy granules, powder, or chunks, but if you buy the big block, be smart. for 10 years i've been doing it with a hammer and icepick, and the first time i tried a knife instead, i ended up in the emergency room. BAD BAD BAD.

Hey lexbean...
I know you said you got the diy kit off etsy.. But just out of curiousity.. Do you ever go to a store like walmart & whereever and buy those little kid sets?

Haha. I always want to do that.. but im scared it will turn out childish looking.

i've gotten them for students that i mentor, but never for myself. i do them with the kids, though, and they are usually fun. just really simple usually, unless the instructions are terrible. and even if they turn out to be something too 'childish'-you can always buy different supplies and continue with the new craft you've learned in your own style. that's what's most fun about kits anyhow- making it your own:)
