    Re: few wax items

    hai sunitha
    first i would like to thank you :)
    here is the procedure

    we require

    • we get wax crystals available in kgs,get that
    • colour crayons
    • for the first set of things in the pic,readymade moulds are available
    • little oil and a wick
    procedure

    • heat the crystal,they liquidify
    • next add crayons a little bit is enough for the colour
    • greese the moulds and put the wick in middle
    • next transfer the liquid wax to these moulds
    • it takes an hr to solidify again ,slowly invert the moulds and u will get ur candles ready
    • these are of very light weight ,so u can allow them to float in a small glass vessel and lit them in water,arrange few flower petals in it
    • you will really enjoy :)

    Re: few wax items

    for the second one
    u require

    • a thermocol base
    • 2-3 long bars of thermacol as the mountains of different sizes
    • decorative dolls
    • white crayon
    procedure

    • as said above heat the wax and add white colour to it
    • allow it to cool in the vessel,but carefully watch when the wax is changing state
    • when the wax is about to solidify,pour that content on the arranged base and mountains,dnt worry about shape,this gives a natural look
    • u can use glitter here and there and set the dools as decorative items
    even ice cream is made in the same way but i used several colours
    used one layer of colour after the other

    Re: Candles

    thank you all for your comments ,and here is the procedure
    1) make a base candle with prefered colour or take a cylinder candle available in market ( in the picture red piece is cylinder candle )
    2) melt paraffin wax
    3) pour wax into a vessel and beat it like a egg ,u will c the froth formation
    4) place red candle on waste cd
    5) now remove the froth and spread on the cd such that it is spread around red candle ( white is the melted,beaten wax spread )
    6) similar procedure is adopted different layer .
    if cd is not available u can use cardboard ,( cut a circle and in center cut it such at u can insert red candle .
    7) as it cools and harden remove the cd and cardboard .
    8) Decorate with flowers ,leaves made with wax or other proucts ( plastic ,paper ,mseal ,etc )and highlight with glitters
    9 ) your candle is ready
    i beleive the procedure is clear .in case of any clarification send me private message .
