Do you love creating things and trying a whole bunch of new projects that no one has ever seen before?

Here is a brand new one for you!

Create candles on a concrete base that you will make in a silicone mold! A small project to do in less than 10 minutes!

You will love the result of the mix of two materials! A gray and uneven base because you will not bother to evenly lay out the concrete in the silicone mold and a smooth, white top for the candle because you will cast the melted wax onto the concrete. A porous material and a very smooth material.

You will need:

Note: All kitchen accessories that you will use for this project should not be used for cooking afterwards, since traces of arsenic can be found after such a project. We advise you to use old kitchen accessories and keep them for this purpose.
