A clean work table

Apparently this is a pretty impressive thing. So said our family and friends from last weekends dinner get together.

To access the covered patio siting area our guests have to walk through the candle making studio.  I usually spend the afternoon tiding up.  (aka, picking up everything on the floor and putting it on the pour table.)   It's usually covered in molds and whatever projects I'm working at the time and some of our friends enjoy spending the evening around it picking wax off molds and inquiring about what I'm up to.


This time instead of a quick tiding up I full on put EVERYTHING away.  And boy did I get an earful.


Spent a few days playing around with soy wax and marbling techniques. Finding the right pour temp has been a challenge but it did give me an idea for some ombre style candles that I want to try out.


I've also been working on some layering techniques using paraffin for watermelon candle designs that I have floating around in my head.
