    Default Fancy Beeswax Candles

    Anyone make fancy beeswax candles? I am looking for more than just fancy poured molds. Looking for ideas or tips on braiding, colorations, etc. Tried a little carving on a taper and didn't like how it burned. The warm wax tended to be a little hard and difficult to carve also. Due to the irregular shape, it wanted to drip. Anyone know of any web pages on this also?

    Look for a book called "Candles Naturally" by Kathy Edmonds. It shows you how to make fluted tapers like Dadant makes. They are beautiful. If you find something on how to make braided candles let me know. I would like to try them too.

    Hey Bee Bliss,

    Have you considered rolled candles? I make rolled candles and I find they sell really well - if that's what you are looking for.

    I've purchased from http://www.onestopcandle.com/ and great stuff.

    Have you ever tried 'hurricane' candles, it's almost a pillar candles but as the wax cools cut an inner circle out and remove the inner wax.

    Good Luck

    Got fancy candles? Why not enter them in the EAS 2012 beeswax show in Burlingtom Vermont this August. Maybe you'll take home the silver award.

    Michael, are you planning on taking the gold award? (Assuming gold, silver, bronze LOL)

    Please be sure to post pictures of the EAS 2012 beeswax show. We'd love to see them.
    BTW: Do you know any Woods from Danville area?
