Skull Candles

It's been nice to take a break from all that holiday candle pouring and stock building to work on something else.

I spent a delightful afternoon shopping for back drops and back ground props for the new Halloween candles.

My photo taking skills are getting slightly better, it only took me two days get these done and I think they turned out pretty good.

Every blog I've read says natural light is the best and they sure are right, I'm still having trouble with capturing lit candles.  

I am a huge fan of candy corn and so are my girls.  They were tickled to be able to eat up my props when I was finished.

Now I need to find a way store all the rest of the non edible stuff I used.   Organizing is not my strong suit but I don't want to get rid of it either.

pouring pumpkins.

I'm beat.

I spend the whole day pouring nothing but orange wax.  Pumpkins, leaves and candy corn tops, which is actually the bottom in the world of upside down candle making.

I spent some of last week getting pictures taken for Halloween and I have a few spooky yet fun candles to bring to the blog.

pouring my blues away.

I'm running out of room...again.

It's been an issue for while at glowlite candles studios.  And building stock for the holidays means I need a place to put all those finished candles. My current method of stacking tubs is getting tiresome, the product I need to get to is always in the bottom tub.


There must be a better.

Luckily, these Star of David candles were on the plans for this week and the depth of that blue always makes me happy!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and if you any suggestions on how to organize a candle making studio please share!

cauldron candles

You never know what a witch has brewing in her cauldron but I'd like to think it's a potion as sweet smelling as these candles.  No frog warts or eye of newt in this brew, I promise!

I scented these bubbling, purple, green and orange wax topped candles with a Berry Bewitching Brew of peachy, apricot and blackberry sweetness with a mix of mandarin, cinnamon and rose.

The cauldron is solid black wax with your choice of coloring for the bubbling goo and a sprinkling of glitter.
