I had some problems with Clare. When the wax dried out the flowers disapeared. Can anyone can help us? Cheers!
Clare -Aug 11, 2015, 7:53AM
i was very anxious to try making this candle but ran into a problem. I brushed wax on the sides of my jar and secured my pressed flowers . They stayed pretty well. However, after I filled the jar with melted wax and let it set, all of my flowers disappeared. They are not visible through the jar at all. Can anyone help me? What did I do wrong? I'm trying to make this for a house warming gift for Saturday
