Another variation which can be achieved by dipped a candle into a variety of different coloured waxes. Much simpler than the dip and carve candle as you do not have to work as fast.

You can use ready made candle for this project.

You will need:-A dipping can of heated blue wax with 10% of microcrystalline soft wax added. A dipping can of heated yellow wax with 10% of microcrystalline soft wax added. A ready made candle. Sharp knife, washing up liquid, a round headed hammer and a potato peeler, and a container of water.

Dip the candle four times into the yellow wax, then into the container of water. Repeat with the blue wax. The dip twice into the yellow wax and finally three times into the blue wax. Obviously you can chose the colours you like - and can have more colours in the outer layers if you wish.

Continue to scrape until you have reached a stage when you like the pattern. Do not worry too much about the candle getting cold - you can still scrape when it has lost its heat.
