Easter Bunnies & Jellybeans!
For this you will need the following:
IGI 2281 wax from BC North (the BCS Version does NOT mottle)
Sunshine/Lemon Yellow liquid dye
12 oz. Apothecary Jar
Glass Bubble Lid with Closed Fitment
Jelly Beans (don't eat them once they have been in the jar!)
Bow tie Wick Holder Clip
Start by melting your wax. For a single candle I used 10 weight oz of IGI 2281, 3/4 tsp Mottle Max & 2 drops Sunshine/Lemon liquid dye. In the mean time I wicked my jar using two of the 44-32-18z wicks. Space the wicks so that the tabs are just a hair apart. You want them very close so the flames create a single melt pool rather than further apart making two separate melts.
This simple project can be done in a variety of ways! For an ocean themed candle, think of putting some shells in the lid and maybe even some sand, scent the candle in Ocean Mist, Sea Breeze or Tidal Wave! For a spice scented candle, try adding some of the Rustic Potpourri to the lid! A silk Gardenia inside the lid of a gardenia scented candle! The only limit to this project is with your imagination!
Happy Easter & Happy Candle Making!
