My good friend, Jenny, gave me these color drip candles as a Christmas gift this past year. She has a bunch of them herself and would always tell me when she was burning one and how cool they were. Knowing how much I like candles, Jenny got me some. This is the first time I have been using them because I wanted to have the right candle holder to burn them in. As these candles burn, the wax runs down the sides and creates these beautiful color drips that mix with each other and from the secondary colors. I wanted a candle holder that would allow the wax to build up. I decided to make my own!
The candles themselves are a white wax. Underneath the white are the primary colors. As the candle burns down, each of the colors burn, pool and run down the sides of the taper creating really awesome textures and of course…mixing of colors! I love these things. I was busy doing other things as I let the candle burn for an entire day. Every time I looked at the candle it looked different and there was a new stream of color somewhere. When this candle completely burns down, I am going to replace it with another one and leave the wax in the base of the holder so the colors can build. That is why I made the outside tray for the candle holder so large. I want a little mountain of rainbow wax to form! These are my new favorite candles. I am thinking this might be my next “giveaway”. Not just yet though…but definitely in the near future!
