old world Santa candles

What's winter with out a white as snow reindeer?

A less stressful one.

These may be beautiful but those antlers are fragile and I break them off on a regular basis when de-molding.  They are difficult to package and ship as well.  As much as I love them I honestly don't see them in next years production.

I've been having so much fun making these old world Santa candles.  I started making these back in May..I think.  Pouring cores and storing them until the holiday season.   They take a long time from start to finish.  There's a lot of hand painting going on and over dips in the antiquing finish has to be at the perfect temperature so at not to alter the paint.
