And I like this one even better because is completely made from scraps, and you don't need any tools to make it!
And is a really nice candle because it last long time and is wind proof!
Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED
-a bucket full of water and ice.
For make the candle:
-a beer bottle,
-scraps pieces of candles (one should be tall like the candle you are going to make),
-small paint brush and glass varnish (make sure is heat proof),
-gloves, gas mask and safety glasses,
-paper, pencil and tape,
-flat pliers (only sometimes).
Step 2: CUT THE BOTTLES
-tie the string around the bottle, where you want it to be cut;
-light up the string for few second;
-dunk the bottle in ice cold water.
It take to me 3 bottle before I made one that broken up well.
First time I didn't let burn the string enough, so nothing appen, second time for too long and it crack the bottle vertically too, third time it finally worked out, but I needed to remove a little spike of glass with a pair of flat pliers.
Use glows, safety glasses and be really careful.
Step 3: SMOOT THE EDGES
Be careful, wear a gas mask and gloves, the dust of the glass is really bad for you.Do not reuse the sanding paper, just trow it away when you are done.
Step 4: PAINT THE BOTTLE
-stick it inside of the bottle with a piece of tape;
-paint the bottle with the glass varnish.
Remember to don't use the same color of varnish and wax, otherwise you will not able to see the drawing really well.
Step 5: MAKE THE CANDLE
-pure the wax in the cut bottle;
-put a long toothpick in the wick of a longer candle and put it in the middle of the bottle full of wax (cut the candle of the right length).
Step 6: DONE!
Light it up and you will see the bottle get all illuminated and the image stand out really well, it look really cool!
