Today, I Learned about Pouring Candles
But what gnaws at me are these perfectly good classes I'm leaving in a trail behind me, and the fact that I was using paraffin candles--when I'm trying to pull away both from non-durable plastics and reduce my waste.
So, what would happen if I refilled these with molten wax and new wicks?
( And what did we learn today?Collapse )
I have one filled seven-day glass (yer bog-standard church candle), a half-height but otherwise identical-seeming glass, and a third glass that looks like some sort of double shot/on the rocks/etc glass. All have previously held candles (two paraffin, one soft soy, respectively). We'll see how they do on this blend, provided by the fine folks at Juniper Tree here in Berkeley. I've lit the seven-day and will see how that goes.
No marriage were harmed in the making of these candles--remember, kids, Drano can help you make your saving throw!
