Hello Autumn

I know what you're thinking, that's a very summery looking candle.  With it's pineappley shape and pool blue hues it certainly doesn't scream, Welcome to a new FALL season!

I've been pouring fall candles for several months now and as much as I have a fondness for the warm autumnal palette I needed a serious break from it and from the headache inducing fall fragrances!  Does anyone else think fall fragrances are just too strong? Too spicy?   If you have any suggestions or favorites that aren't the typical fall scents, I'd love to hear about them.

My home has smelled like a perpetual pumpkin spiced bakery, even my neighbor came over to see what I've been up to because she can smell it from her house and when we left on a 5 day holiday at the begging of Sept the aroma traveled with us AND greeted us upon our return.

So I decided to play around with a new dipping technique and I've been wanting to test out my pineapple mold that I made few months back and never had a chance to pour.  The technique is amazing and the gold dip is more lustrous than I thought possible to achieve with a wax alone.  In the past I've had to over dip in gloss or add glitter to make it sparkle and shine.  The next steps are wick sizing and getting a burn from it, that dip is super thick and heavily concentrated with dyes so I definitely have my work cut out for me.
