I have yet another version of grubby candle making that I just had to share. Just thought of it, tried it, and came out nice. As you might remember, I'm a huge fan of tart warmers. I save the wax when I change tarts (empty into an old candle jar when it's still hot liquid) -- so it looks like this. It has a delicious scent because its all the wax from all the tarts -- and a nice color as well.
I changed tarts today, and took the liquid wax and poured it into a small old cup. Then took the candle that was plain white:
Added a touch of brown paint and mixed it up. The wax starts to solidify (hafta work fast) and then I brushed it quickly on the candle. Let it dry for about 15 minutes..and.. here's the finished candle in one of my redo candle holders! No need for spices -- the scent is on the wax! And as the wax is solidifying, it gets grubby. How clever is that!?!?!?! LOL.
And -- no need for tea candles! or microwaves! Pretty cool, eh?
I haven't posted any kitty pics for at least 2 days --OMG what's wrong with me?! I know Gina loves my kitty pics as I love hers, so here's a few just for her (and anyone else who isn't bored to death looking at the furball.) Begging for treats.... how can you say no to that face?
And sitting on my computer waiting for breakfast today...why I never get any work done! (also known as "I want what I want when I want it.")
The water bottle is to squirt him when he is REALLY bad, which is like every 15 minutes. :>)
Well, I"m back to work... it's actually snowing here, but not sticking. Pretty, though. Try the new candle recipe -- you'll love it!
