Look out! It’s a giant chimp!

Recommended Posts

I decided to throw some scrap wax into one of the old Pourette molds I inherited, and this is what came out. 

Theres not a whole lot of detail involved with this one, so if you can’t tell it’s the “Heat No Evil” of the trip of chimps. He sits at 1 foot, and weighs in at an impressive 1 lb 4 oz.

If you notice the dark spot near the bottom, well, that’s 40+ year old wax that original owner never cleaned out! 

Anway, I think if I was to seriously pour this candle (and the rest of the set), I’d have to spend a little time carving to bring out the minimal detail. Damn, that’s a lot of wax though!

that is a big one!  Cute but yeah the set would be almost 4#.  I think if I poured those I'd be using candle paint but I don't carve (well just my hands occasionally)

DANG, yep, that's a big 'un! Love him! Since  you're an artist, maybe you can carve him up a bit, and see what you come up with. So fun, huh? :yay:

Yeah, I’m not a fan of painting any time. I avoid it whenever I can, lol

I think a lot of these older molds were made with less detail to accommodate painting, since it was so popular back in the 70s. 

I might just play around with this tester one and see what I can slice out!

Very cool! That's a massive candle for sure! I like the carving idea, that could give it an even more unique look!
