Another Attempt @ Marbles

This another attempt at Marbles. I didn't use 1343. Instead, I wanted to see how 4625 would perform with this technique. On the 3x3 & 3x4 I used 3 drops of dye and experienced some cracking as a result of putting them in the freezer for 5 minutes to help them release (note to self: don't do it again, LOL). On the 3x6 I used 4 drops of dye and had some disfigurement I assume from too much heat from the heat gun. The little disk was left over wax that I added 2 drops of dye. It is more close to the affect I was trying to achieve. I want to thank Georgia for posting her results from her experiment. I was moving in the same direction. I think when I try this technique again, I will try 1 drop of dye.

I wish I could see your candles. The pix is too dark & too small.:o

Click on the picture, it'll bring it up larger.

Sherie, I tried marbling once...and not since then! LOL I love the look but it seems to definitely take some practice. You're not far, the one on the left looks really cool, IMO!

Oh girl I haven't had a chance to respond by email, but I think you're getting close. The one in the front is my fav. Always wanted to play with this technique a little more than what I've done, especially since watching Carmen go through it step by step. Perhaps I can get back to candlemaking and give it a go her soon :)

Thank you all for looking. Sorry Mountain, my lighting wasn't that great when I took the pic. I'm going at this again this weekend (I hope, lol). Well hi dee Scented! I was about to call your darn boss and tell him to back the heck off. I just wasn't sure if it was the show tour or your day job contributing to you MIA! LOL I'll post the next round when I get them done and I will take a better pic and use Photobucket to host it.

Thanks, Trish, that is MUCH better!

Figuring (sp?) out the right amt of color & the right amt of stir & the right amt of heat gun is ... part of the process. Keep working it, girl, you'll get 'em just the way you want 'em with a little more practise ... so goes the theory. :P:grin2:
