Candle making

Spent a creative evening making candles for Christmas with a wonderful friend Michelle and a group of her friends.

Candle making 01

A range of candle scents (slightly out of focus) to choose from .

Candle making 02

Dried fruit including oranges and limes to be used to decorate pillar candles.

Candle making 03

My soy wax candles (coloured red) in small white ramekins,  with Christmas scent.  This is the first time using soy wax.  Soy wax is opaque in appearance (rather than translucent) and takes colour and scent better than paraffin-based wax.

These tea-cup candles were ones that Michelle has prepared/created earlier.
