Overpouring

You can create some really pretty candles by overpouring around a premade base.  Place your premade base inside of a mold that is slightly larger in diameter than the base. Surround the base with dried flowers, shells, coffee beans, beads etc to fill the space between the base and the mold.  Slowly pour in a clear wax (no stearic acid) that has a higher melting point than the base wax.  Check to see if you need to repour if the wax shrinks down.  Remove from the mold once the candle is cooled sufficiently.  If the objects need to be exposed a bit more, you can use swift even swipes of a propane torch to melt off some of the surface wax until the objects are visible.  Use a piece of panty hose to buff up the surface once it hardens. 

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to let you know your products are GREAT. I couldn't wait to get the order to give it all a try, and now I can't wait to place my second order to try other products that you offer. Your melt and pour soap melted so clear and the scents I ordered smelled fantastic. I have to tell you that you hit the nail on the head. The products are great, the shipping was quick, the site is easy to navigate, and the customer service girl I spoke with was polite. Keep up your fine work."
