I made candles few months back. I was just done with my Post Grad and wanted to spend time home before I joined any where. When I went to the local market to buy some regular stuff with one of my friends, I found a book on candle making and thought I would give it a try. So I went there the next time and picked up the necessary material except for moulds. I couldn't find the regular large moulds in the shapes of cylinders or balls or cones. So I made candles from the stuff I found at home like plastic glasses ( use and throw kind ).
Then I picked up some small glasses and made glass candles.
I went to Indian Consumer Exhibition this year, as every year, where I found candle holders and picked up those and filled them with wax and made candles with them too.
The lady with the basket over her head is a ceramic candle holder which I picked up from the same exhibition and turned it into a candle.
I decorated some of the candles with beads and outliner and turned them into designer candles. I apologise for the blurred image. Couldn't get all them of them clearly.
These are what I call the baby candles. There was one more in the shape of a star which I gifted to my aunt. She advised me with the pictures and the colours. She was of a great help. Thank you Aunt Sara.
There were almost 35 - 40 of all the candles of different shapes and sizes and I didnt know what to do and so I sold most of them to a retailer locally and kept a few with me. I always thought my candles were unique in that I haven't found any similar to mine, although they are of smaller size when compared to the conventional candles we find else where.
