What you need
Votive or Pillar Wax
Fluted Tart Mold
Mold Release Spray
Red & Blue Cosmetic Glitter
Whipping Bowl, whisk and spoon
Step 1: Prepare your work area and spray your tart molds with mold release spray. Heat wax to 180-200 degrees. Add scent and stir well. Allow wax to cool to 160 degrees and slowly pour into tart molds. Let tarts completely cool.
Step 2: Remove tarts from molds after they have set up. Have embeds and glitter handy.
Step 3: Reheat your scented wax until its melted and pour into the mixing bowl. Allow wax to form a skin or film over the top and then start stirring the wax with a whisk or fork. As the wax cools it will start to thicken up and become clumpy.
Step 4: Place a glass flag in the center of tart and using a spoon surround the flag with whipped wax covering the base and the top of the tart. It will look like a cloud. Sprinkle the glitter over the top. Allow to completely set up and harden.
Ideas Variations You can use this idea and technique for any glass embeds with a stem, from flowers to sea live. Buy changing the wax base color you could have a garden or a sea theme.
