Scented...this is for you

I've been making regular pillars for a long time so it took me a while to get started with the new ideas. But once I finally began was just too much fun to stop! There are so many people to thank for their inspiration and generosity where their candle creations are concerned. A special thank you to Scented and Donita!

Thanks tlc! I used 1343 at Donita's suggestion and it really does a nice job. Of course you may have to coax some of it off where it's in a thin layer over a shape but it's really not a big deal to do.

:D I'm having so much fun Donita! Once I got the bugs worked out it was a matter of order more wax or move on to another experiment...now watch...I'll run out of everything at the same time! I swear in 30 years candlemaking has never been such a blast!

Wow, thanks everyone for the kind words! Now, for the questions...

tlc, mtngirl and Lori...I don't use any scent in my overpour but then, I was having allergies like crazy so I stopped scenting my candles. That is until this week when I got brave and used some scent. But, unless the scent was almost colorless I don't know if I'd use it in the overpour anyway. Chunk placement is also a big factor in the results. And, yes, I did use little cookie cutters for those shapes.

Thanks Sharyl...that's our grandaughter in the cane.

You know Mozzie, I didn't scent the citrus layer and, like you, was wracking my brain trying to figure out what I would offer in the way of a citrus scent. I know that many of those fragrances can smell like fuel. I did do a little research though and found out that Genwax has a pretty popular oil called Juicy Bits of Orange. I guess I should try it next time!
