See below, the idiots guide to making candles at home:
|Step 1: Melt cheap white candles and crayons in old tins placed in boiling water. (If you want scented candles, put a few drops of vanilla essence in the tins.)|
|Step 2: Spray muffin tray with cooking spray. While waiting for wax to melt, wrap wicks from cheap candles around wooden skewers and rest over silicone muffin tray.|
|Step 3: Pour melted wax into prepared tray and leave to set.|
|Step 4: When set (about 2hours), turn out of pan!|
|Warning...! Don't use food colouring to colour the wax! It's water based and forms droplets at the bottom of the candle which then pop open and leak out afterwards.|
I'll take photos of their stall with the other goodies and post those next week.
Onto drawing now, I started a zendala of my own about 2 weeks ago(drawn with a slightly skew compass), and finished it yesterday. It's A3 in size and I drew the patterns quite small. AFter finishing the outer parts I decided to leave the "flowers" because it just worked!
|Tangles used: twisted rope around the edge, nzeppel, huggins, fife, facets and then stripes and a flower in the middle.|
|Challenge #84: cruffle, florz, bales, featherfall|
Not bad hey.....I got the challenge done and posted and it's not even Wednesday yet!!
See you next week
