"Streaking" Soy Candle (Directions added on post #16)

Ive been messing around with this "streaking" technique for months; finally think I got the method down! Just not too sure what I think of the look. The one on the left is scented "Angel", and the one on the right is scented "Jamaica Me Crazy".

So, honest opinions, does it look stupid?

I like them a lot, great job, I think I'll have a try when I get some jars in.

I've done simliar with p.w pillars, cones & star moulds with varying degrees of success but I haven't dyed any of my soy yet.

Nice jars too.

I added FO at 150 degrees; poured at 125. Shaved off slivers off my dye blocks and then swirled them with a chopstick. Let them melt for about 5 to 10 minutes (too long and they would melt into a solid color candle). Then, stuck them in the fridge for 30 minutes, and then let them cool at room temp the rest of the way. Pretty simple, once I figured out not to let them cool on their own (w/o the fridge). After my test burn, spending time in the fridge didnt seem to affect the burn or scent throw. Im going to try some more soon! I recommend not using more than 3 different colors as it could result in an ugly-looking mess of a candle! HTH, Linaya
