Making Indoor Ice Candles

Does anyone know how to make indoor ice candles? Not the real ice candles for outdoors.

We used to melt old candles or parafin wax in an old tin can (or old pot you wouldn't be using for food) over boiling water and pour it in a clean milk carton that we had put a taper candle in, surrounded by crushed ice. You can melt old crayons in the wax to color them. The wax hardens around the ice pieces and makes really neat lacy looking designs and you peal the milk carton away once it cools. Make sure you do this somewhere "waterproof", because it can be pretty messy once the wax melts the ice. It's a good way to get rid of old candles and crayons. Using a taper is easier than trying to set a wick in it.

I'm not sure this is what you want but years ago we used to make ice candles . We used a container that you would be able to get the candle out of (We used tin cans ) then we put ice cubes in the can you can break some up for different size holes . Then we just poured the wax over the ice . The results would be different each time they were neat,

if you had several different colors of wax and alternate the colors as you go along . Hope this is what you wanted . :)
