Have you used epsom salts for any crafts this season? It only took me 2 months to try this frosted candle that I first wrote about back in October. After my ‘issues’ with frosted branches, I was hoping this project would be easier.
I like crafts that only take 3 supplies – a candle, Mod Podge, and epsom salts.
Ok, four. Spray sealer.
I just brushed the Mod Podge on. You can see a few gaps here and there. After I rolled the candle in a foam plate of epsom salts I just added some more Mod Podge in the gaps and then the salts.
That seemed to work pretty well. But after a day of drying the candle was still ‘shedding’ a lot of salt. Which is why I tried the spray sealer. And that worked well too.
Although I’m not going to light the candle. I have no idea what epsom salts + Mod Podge + spray sealer does with a lit flame and I’m not gonna try and find out.
Phew! I think this is my last craft project for 2011! I said ‘crafts’, not painting. I’ll definitely use next week to recuperate catch up on some painting time. Hopefully.
Merry Christmas Eve! Are you ready?
