pinecones dipped in palm wax


Recommended Posts

Are you scenting these or just dipping them for looks? I wonder how it would look to dip them in green wax and then put little dots of red or other colored wax all over?

I can't tell from your pics how sparkly they are. Did you sprinkle glitter on them?

I dipped them in heavy scented cinnamon. I used feather palm wax. You can't see it in the pictures, but they have a sparkly look. I have a question for anyone who dips pinecones. If I'm going to sprinkle them with glitter, does it matter what color wax I use. I have some colored scrap wax in blocks that I need to use up. This would be perfect if the pinecone is going to be covered in glitter anyway.

I did 3 of them last night. Mine didn't turn out like the picture here :confused:I think I needed to let the wax cool more. This is hunter green Spruceberry GG, The color didn't show up but they do have a thin coating of wax and sparkle. Looks kinda sloppy in the pic those are drips on the foil.

What is GG palm wax? I used feather palm wax. I dipped them once in the hot wax to get a starting layer. Then I let the wax cool to almost slushy to do the other dips. That is how I got the thick layer. I'm going to try paraffin today. I'm just wondering if the color they are dipped in is going to make a difference if I'm going to put glitter on them?

Since these pinecones don't have a wick, I just melted the wax and dipped the pinecones. Didn't check the temperature. For subsequent dips, I just let the wax get to a slushy consistency. If I were to say what the temperature was, I'd say 180 for the first dip and probably around 130 for the other dips.

O.k. I'm going to do mine again when the wax cools off. But hey they smell really good.

GG is a palm container wax and that was what I was doing when I read your post and it just so happened I had Peaks spruceberry in the pitcher.

You know just a thought I was following the thread about the CS GG and maybe that would be a good way to use that wax. I know there is alot of disappointed people on the forum over that episode.
