I still remember making dip candles back in 2nd grade. Our teacher had us bring in broken crayons from home. We sorted them by color into metal buckets that were then heated to melt the wax down. We tied one end of the wick to a candle and the other end to a metal weight. We formed a line and would dip the wick in the wax an then do a lap around the classroom for that layer to harden. I kept changing the color of mine… 5 layers red… 5 layers green… 5 layers blue. We then got to take them home as gifts for our moms.
I got the first round of changes for Book 2 back from the editor today. I have to add a lot of commas 🙂 Things will be wrapping up soon! Order Book 2 here.
