You guys ready to find out what the 50-cent mystery package that Geri bought from the swap meet contained?
BEESWAX SHEETS for candlemaking!! Supposedly "hand-rolled beeswax candles are virtually smokeless and dripless. They burn brighter than ordinary candles and have a light, sweet honey fragrance without the addition of any artificial fragrance." How cool is that!!
The pack came with a variety of colored sheets.
I found a video online that explained how to use it. This is my version. I first cut a sheet into fourths.
I put them all together and placed the wick on one side.
Then I rolled it up real neat and tight.
Here's my very first beeswax candle!! There are a variety of ways you can roll the sheets. I gave Geri back the rest of them so that she can try it out for herself.
You can check out a tutorial here or a video here.
