Hmm. This could be nice for when I do candles with Vicky.

Ive only got soy though and Im going to have to get some different wicks.

My thought to make it more stable when pouring is to fill a washing up bowl with sand then embed the shells in so they are level. This wil make it easier to pour. It wil also gice better idea of depth of sand required to stabilise them when in use,

Ive also got ideas of how theyd be displayed .

Yay you guys have gort me thinking candles again yee haa

I went out and bought some silicone to "glue" them into place as displays as well as some really nice pebbles (at $1 a bag it's cheaper than collecting and cleaning  :mwaha: ) so I'll probably play with that later today.

Michelle I am so glad you have some shells to play with!

Love that little sea shell candle Lindy!  :buttrf:
Wish there were sea shells around these parts of the world too. Feels much better collecting your own and will sound good on a label too.

Thanks Eva....  I really do feel blessed to have access to them.  I think we take stuff like this for granted and just assume that all beaches are littered with them like ours.  At least our rocky beaches.  I have another beach that is really close where I can collect Sand Dollars.  They're so pretty although fragile.  They wouldn't be good for candle making.

Lisa I ended up just being  a vegetable last night.  Today I'm going to go down to the beach and get more shells both large and small for this project.

Michelle, that is actually how I stabilize the shells is with sand in a dish.  Works a charm (sorry for not commenting earlier - I thought I had but I must have been dreaming :mwaha: )
