Easy Water Candle
Water Candles are really eye-catching and a great talking point . One can put any decorative piece inside the glass including plastic flowers , stones, beads, sand and even real fruits and flowers !
1 Wax ,addiitives or a store bought candle
2 Plastic, glass , ceramic decorative pieces or even real fruits and flowers as they will not be coming in contact with the flame anyway.
3 Break a candle , save the wick or follow candle making instructions in the blog
4 Heat wax in an old pan or in a double boiler carefully
5 Select glassware , wipe clean.
6 Put in items of your choice , you can also glue them , fill 3/4 with water
7 Pour the melted wax slowly and carefully over the ENTIRE surface of water like a layer.This is very important .
8 Keep wicks ready. Push in the wicks in the semi-hard wax layer , it will cool faster as its in water !
9 Let the candle set , do not shift it.Do not try to clean any spills .
10 Clean the wax spills from the glassware if any after the candle has set.
PS- The ENTIRE surface of the water has to be layered with wax so that all the items remain UNDER it and do not catch fire.
