when you do this do the candles you find have to be a certain kind,
meaning do you mix scented with unscented, color with clear? i knowyou dont mix wax with gel.

>> We make candles here. I look for candles that are at 2nd hand
stores or yard sales which are usually either free or ultra cheap.
Then I get the wick material , color chips, and the scented oil at ahobby shop. I usually have a bunch of old glass jars and other glass
containers around the house so I cut a piece from a wire coat hanger
that would sit over top of the glass jar or whatever. I measure,cut, and tie the wick material to the piece of wire so that it hangs
down in the center of the container. I then melt all the old candles
and add as much or little of the color chips or scented oil as Iwant. Pour it into the containers and let them sit usually about 24
hours undisturbed. Sometimes it will settle and you will have to
pour more wax, sometimes not. It is interested because you can dodifferent colors/layers/scents all in the same container.
