Make A Teacup Candle.x

As i wrote earlier i have a bit of an obsession with vintage teacups which i love to hunt around for in charity shops and car boots.I started making them as gifts for family and friends( whether they wanted them or not!) and eventually started selling them at craft fairs and a friends tea shop.I must say if i can make them anyone can.:)

  1. Do you not get a well/dip in the middle of your candles? If yes how do you fill it so the wax top is smooth and flat? Really could do with some advice.

  2. do you use soy wax or paraffin wax? less likely to happen with soy wax. to avoid it happening pour some of the melted wax in but not all. Then pour the rest in about five mins later. It happened to me all the time with paraffin wax but not as much with soy wax.x
