"I use paraffin mottling wax with a cotton wick. The wax is a high quality; my supplier is Village Craft and Candle. I have 3 scents: winterberry, sugar spruce and tropical sunset. Colours of deep violet, violet, passion pink, butterscotch and gray. Pillars are available scented and unscented. All my candles are prepared in my kitchen, hand poured.
"All my candles but the melts I can do more in less time because the 3x6 pillars take hours to det. I have also started making flowers out of wax as decorations which I will bring as props for the May 4th show.
The wax flowers are a lot of fun. I think Halloween will be even better."
What's the most difficult part of the process?
"Watching the wax temperatures to add the scent at the right time."
What is your favourite piece of work that you have created?
"I did make some zodiac candles but have since re-melted the wax to make the flowers for spring as props for the Artisan show."
At the post office I was told the box containing a candle smelled great; she had no idea what was in there until I told her it was a scented candle.
People have also commented on the colours.
What are you doing when you're not creating?
"Thinking of things I can make for Halloween, Christmas and other occasions."
