Rounded Star Multi Color-Leach

This candle was done by leaching three dyes together as the candle was cooling. I started by pouring 140° F paraffin wax into the mold. When it had cooled enough to form a skin on top, I added the dye shavings. I put the yellow, red, and blue shavings on different sides, and then used a butane torch to melt them down and swirl them around. When the candle had cooled I filled the pit with black wax.
