My very first votive candles. I bought the supplies when I was debating between soap making or candle making last year. Soap making won my heart and as I play and learn more about it, I fell in love with the craft.
After posting so much about my soaps, I finally got some of my friends to notice my soaps. But some asked about candles. Since I used up my olive oil supply, I end up dabbling and flirting with candle making today. This obviously is not my first love but there is nothing turn offy about the craft. It is also fun and I know if I read and watch more candle makers there will also be an infinite way of designing and making candles.
I think these creamy white soy votive candle scented with cucumber melon fragrance oil are just what candles are supposed to look, feel and smell like. They came out of the mold after an hour so easily. Now I just have to check if they will burn as long as they should.
I need more practice at making sure the wick is centered. I saw some candle makers glue the wick in place before pouring the wax. I will do that on my next candles for sure.
