More Evolved Candle-Making
I’m obsessed with getting these candles right. A few changes to the process:
* I started simply making a “shelf” out of hot glue, around the inside edge where I want the tealight to sit.
* Red Bull cans make GREAT candles… just hack off the tops, give them a base coat of spray paint, add the hot glue (lots for the top sharp edge and lots to hide the ‘can’ bottom – some of mine need a bit more there), and paint again. Drop an led tealight inside and it reflects beautifully. No newspaper needed to hide seams or anything. Any size can works!
* Layers of the hot glue with a “pool” at the bottom looks much better. I do a base coat on everything now.
