Gummy bears candle

Earlier this year I have been the March contest winner on the WhysperFairy Molds blog.

Here you'll find the booty I received from this incredibly talented woman!!!

The first mould I decided to use was the one with the bears and obviously to make a new candle.

My wax's stash is pretty empty these days, and I had to use what's left... for the gummy bears I've used soy wax while for the candle cube I've used bees wax.
Nothing to argue about soy wax (as usual), while for bees wax I must admit that the sticky texture, that remains after the candle has set, bothers me a bit...

Anyway, candle looks really cute!

Thanks again WhysperFairy Molds!

Fire vibe soap: recipe, tricks and links to technical videos

Here you have the links to the original videos showing the techniques: 1) Tilted tiger stripe swirl 2) Multi-mica Taiwan swirl
Since I run out of castor oil, I had to modify the recipe shown in video 1) as follows  ­čśů
Recipe (slow moving trace):
Olive oil (pomace) 70% Coconut oil 22.25% Palm oil (organic) 7.75%
Note that the palm oil I buy from The Soap Kitchen 'carries Organic Certification and comes from Columbia. It is not produced on land that has been taken from the Rain Forests, nor are there any Orangutangs made homeless. Our suppliers do use 'ethical' methods in their production (we have actually visited the site). Our Columbian suppliers are members of the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Production ofPalmOil).'
