This week we heard from Fred and Caroline about how to process wax and make it into various products.
Candles (all sorts)
Then use molds and castings to make your candles. Note the coloring differences between the candles.
Yes, those are rose petals made one by one, with beeswax. If you come to the Illinois State Fair this summer, you will see even more of these on display. Perhaps you can make something interesting and submit your honey or wax-creation entry to win a prize.
Now's the time to be working on these creations, in between checking on your bees during breaks in the weather.
Until next time!
