It was a cold and rainy Saturday here in SW PA. We got a liitle snow last night but no where near what they hyped it up to be. Although other areas of Pittsburgh did get more. It was still a good day to stay in and work. I finished up some candles I bought right after Christmas.
I'm taking a chance and showing my workspace. It is alongside my laundry.It also houses the water heater and furnace too. I do everything here. Sew, quilt, candle making, dying fabric, etc. It is the catch all room.
I melt my wax in an electric frypan. It is just large enough and fits on my worktable. I like it too because the wax stays hot while I work.
You can see the whip I use to whip the wax on the right. The white votives in the front are the befores.
These aren't done with the whipped wax. They are painted with spices.
I also did some bigger candles but I forgot to take the befores.These ones were done with the whipped wax.
My favorite painted ones. They are great as a single candle in a holder or grouped in 3s and wrapped in paper or with a homespun strip of fabric.
This was a good way to spend a dreary day. It still smells really good down here in the basement....cloves,cinnamon,pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg...................
I need a donation for our auction at our quilting retreat this coming weekend and I thought why not a prim basket. So it's off to work on a candle mat. I'll show the basket and it's goodies before I donate it.
