another candle

this is the candle I have done today,I found that using a white core candle and dipping in pink that it gives me a two colour look then I finished it off with little silk roses just for decoration, quite easy to do you do need a star shaped mould to make the core candle with and what would we do without youtube,check it out just type in carved candles and some are wonderful
