      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 know

      you dont mix wax with gel.

      Then I get the wick material , color chips, and the scented oil at a

      hobby 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 I

      want. 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 do

      different colors/layers/scents all in the same container.
