Overpouring

You can create some really pretty candles by overpouring around a premade base.  Place your premade base inside of a mold that is slightly larger in diameter than the base. Surround the base with dried flowers, shells, coffee beans, beads etc to fill the space between the base and the mold.  Slowly pour in a clear wax (no stearic acid) that has a higher melting point than the base wax.  Check to see if you need to repour if the wax shrinks down.  Remove from the mold once the candle is cooled sufficiently.  If the objects need to be exposed a bit more, you can use swift even swipes of a propane torch to melt off some of the surface wax until the objects are visible.  Use a piece of panty hose to buff up the surface once it hardens. 

Customer Testimonial

"I wanted to pass along to you that I am completely thrilled with the service and product that I have received from your company. I ordered $350.00 worth of supplies on 6/4 and received it on 6/7. I think it is great that you are so fast. Also, the supplies that I received were all better than I anticipated. More often than not, when you order something by mail or internet, it does not quite live up to expectations. I am pleasantly surprised that your company has exceeded my expectations."
