I am merely a hobbyist, so far, and my candles don't compare to the beauties that you all post but I figured, hey, no harm in posting anyway :)

 

These are my fave few from my last two days. The Palm in the clear jar with lid is in Vanilla Voodoo ( I usually blend my own scents but VV is soooo good, I need it alone at times, lol )

 

The bluish palm in the clear to pink ombré jar is in Love Spell, it's for my sister in law, her fave scent. 

 

The soy is in a blend that I created today that made a to die for strawberries & cream scent ! It already has great cold throw, can't wait to cure & light it !

Thank you so much !!! I didn't use a strawberries & cream oil, I used two oils...60% Daystar's Marshmallow Fluff and 40% WSP Sweet Strawberry and it came out VERY strawberries and cream, like if I sold, I would call that blend Strawberries and Cream, lol

 

The Marshmallow Fluff is spot on, on it's own and in other blends ( sooo good with lemon or blood orange ) but Sweet Strawberry is such a strong scent, that the Marshmallow is just a sweet, creamy background when blended with it :)

They are really pretty candles and you should be proud of them!  The ombre look is really great with the palm wax.

I wish that I could be more of a help to you on that, but I only have the Marshmallow Fluff and a coconut that has since been discontinued....I will say that both are top notch, though and I really need to order more from them in the near future :)

They are so pretty! Pardon my ignorance, but how did you get the blue/turquoise and the purple in the second candle? Did you just pour the purple, let it cool and then pour the blue/turquoise color?

That was all the blue wax :) The jar was ombre, it was pink on the bottom, clear on top, so it looked layered but it really wasn't.

 

I've only layered soy so far and with soy, I wait til it cools then pour the other layer. Now with palm, I would imagine that I would need to blast the jar with a heat gun before pouring a second layer, at least around the top part of the jar.

 

because I heat my jars prior to pouring palm. I don't get good crystallization otherwise.
