I utilized the water candle technique for a Halloween inspired group of candles. The Ghost Candle came out the most impressive. Check out my Vampire's Kiss candle on my blog at http://theohshinycrafter.wordpress.com/

Supplies Needed:
  • White Taper candles
  • Candle Wax
  • Double boiler
  • Candle Warmer
  • Glass jars for the melted wax
  • Sink-full of cold water or bucket
Before you begin, please be aware, use proper head resistance gloves when dealing with the boiler and never leave the melting wax unattended. Also, when finished, these candles are very delicate, be gentle.

Step 1: Melt the Wax

Step 1 – Melt your wax in the double boiler. I didn’t have a double boiler so I had to improvise. I used empty/clean glass jelly jars to melt the wax in.
