Thought I'd see if I'm smart enough to use the photo function.
I started making cut & curl candles this year as an addition to our Farmer's Market income.
Very nice :)
Now thats something I would like to learn to do.
It looks very complicated.
The colors are beautiful.
It's really not that hard.
My favorite saying is that if I can do it anyone can.
Like most things start with a couple of good books.
I started with one titled "cut & Curl Candles" and they show every cut to make.
There aren't really any fast rules so you do it as you go.
Do you make these with bees wax?
I would think that bees wax would be to hard.
I wouldn't use it to make candles but.....
I have some uncappings of old bees wax left over from 1998.
I am wondering if there is anything I can do with it?
Mabe make a wood polish or something.
Yes, The 1st ones I did were beeswax.
Now when I run out of Beeswax we use paraffin also just as an alternative.
I prefer beeswax though as it stays pliable longer than paraffin.
As long as the wax is clean you shouldn't have a problem using it.
