Unity Candle & Runner-up

December 16, 2011 (last modified: December 30, 2011)

These are the candles I made for my wedding. Both of them are made using 140° F paraffin wax along with parol oil to create the mottling effect. The parol oil is added to the wax before pouring and mixed well. Then when the candle is cooled enough to form a skin on top, dye shavings were added and melted in with a butane torch.
My wife picked the pink candle to be our unity candle. The other one is now decorating our apartment.
