A new soy wax candle creation and something new with wool.
This past couple of weeks has been busy. I’ve been making new soy candle designs and revamping old designs in time for my final event of the year. There have also been orders for Christmas presents to make and a Secret Santa gift too. I can’t show any of the Christmas makes though, otherwise that would spoil the surprise if the receivers of the gifts see them. It always seems to get busier about this time of year, no matter how prepared you are for the Christmas rush.
What I can show you though is my biggest candle creation yet, 7.5cm wide and 21cm tall. It’s a very bold, multicoloured chunk candle, filled with all the colours of the rainbow, or of the seven chakras of the body.
While I was out on one of my supply shopping trips, I came across this.
I’ve wanted to make something that was softer than what I normally make, something that would make people want to touch and pick up at craft fairs. For a while I’ve had an idea of making wool wrapped candle holders. I love how the blue and green blend into the white wool, so when I saw this I decided to give it a go.
As you can see from the photo above, it seems fate has played against me. While I imagined the finished item to have colours spread all over the place, it turns out the green and blue sections of wool were just about the right distance apart for the two colours to stay on opposite sides of the candle holder. This turned out to be one strange coincidence.
