naomi is working totally on her own making "the perfect one"
thea was very enthusiastic about a long orange one.... and oops she let go of the wick and the candle melted in the red liquid wax pipe. no problem, so lets try a new one. brave girl, no tears just get started again once over
for elias i had a challenge, he worked on small bees wax dippers for our birthday-candle holder, so far he made three. and of course a very thick bees wax one with big decorations for himself.
i'm glad we get to do this at the workshop, they offer a big variate of colours and different finishes, a favorite of the kids is a snow star kind of glaceing. for me, i'm happy with the pure bees wax, they smell lovely. the dipping is a bit slower and even that is fine with me, it's contemplative and slowed me down for a moment of this afternoon. that's what i needed and what i so appreciate on making candles.
