ALRIGHT PARTY PEOPLE.
Today, I tried to make dollhouse candles with real wax, and failed miserably. I found out that the reason is that I'm not double-boiling the wax... just trying to stick (unweighted) sewing thread into a candle, and not waiting for it to cool before I dip again.
That's why no picture yet.
But. If you boil a heat-resistant container with wax in water, weigh down the bottom with a small bead, and are actually patient, you should come up with a tiny candle! Don't try to light it, though, because you need to use borax, salt, and water to soak your 100% cotton wick in for at least a day for it to be functional and not a disaster. All the same, I wouldn't light a tiny candle anyway. A waste of a llllot of work if you ask me! Happy arting!
