Wax Craft Ideas

I am looking for new wax crafts ideas. I like making a glass full of a beverage, something that looks real.

Have you tried making "Swiss cheese" candles? You put crushed ice in a coffee can with the melted wax and when it cools it has holes like Swiss cheese. If you use orange wax, it looks like cheese.

I saw a neat craft the other day. It was a wax bowl. The lady had blown up a balloon and put the soft wax over the balloon and let it harden. Deflated the balloon, flipped it over and she had a bowl. When the wax was still soft she had set it on the table in order to get a flat bottom. She then took dried flowers and attached them to the bowl with a little bit of melted wax and then covered them with another thin clear layer of melted wax. The bowl would have measured about 6 " high and about 6" in diameter across the top. Neat idea!

Go to this website for a neat idea. http://www.greenerstyle.co.uk/newspaper-square-coasters-p-390.html

If you don't wish to look at the website, then here is my description: NEWSPAPER COASTERS AND PLACEMATS. Wax some newspaper pages and roll them up into long strips. Lay the strips on a flat surface and roll them around and flat like a 'Catherine Wheel Firework' or 'black liqurice swirls'. Fasten the end. Stitch them together with strong twine. Voila!

I would really appreciate some information on how to wax the paper before rolling it, so if anyone has an idea please post it here.

We used to take a picture and stick it on to a bar of soap, then melt our canning wax and dip the top of the soap into the wax to get a good coverage on the picture. Makes pretty guest soap, or soap to just decorate. Can also be used, and if careful, the picture will stay on nearly the life of the bar. Makes great gifts too.
