    Default Candles

    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.

    Now thats something I would like to learn to do.
    It looks very complicated.

    Bee,
    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.
