d20 Candle!

We got our silicone over the weekend and had some fun creating molds yesterday. We learned some things (ratio by volume and by weight are different, watch for air bubbles, be extra sure the wick is in the center…) but we got some fun results for our first try.

I couldn’t find our good camera yesterday but I just had to post today, so here is a crappy picture taken with my phone:

There are some imperfections where there were air bubbles – have to figure out how to fix that.  Maybe pound it against the counter to let it settle like you do with a cake…  

For the numbers I had some gold buff left over from my harry potter wands, so I rubbed that in and buffed it out.  It made the numbers come out pretty nice (but also highlighted the air bubbles 🙂

Next time I’m going to try a darker red and silver buff to match the wedding.  So jazzed!
