Rose Candle

I made these candles a few weeks ago and I've finally gotten around to posting them.
I've been meaning to try different ways to create candles. I was hoping to use sand but I saw these little containers and I thought I would try them first. I had a hard time tracking down a scent I liked to go with the water pail theme of the containers. I finally just settled on rose. I coloured the candles to resemble clear water.

The only real problem i had with the pails is that the wax leaked out of them in some places. The wax hardened quickly though so it wasn't that big of an issue. I also used putty on the spout of one of the pails so that the wax wouldn't leak from there.

Happy candle making!
