How to Make Ice Candles
If you would like to try to make ice candles, then I would recommend reading the article by eHow Hobbies, Games & Toys Editor - How to Make Ice Candles.
In order to make these candles, you will need to purchase paraffin wax. I do not believe soy will work for this particular project. Paraffin wax is a petroleum by product which contains oil. According to the author, the lower the melting temperature, the higher the oil content. You'll want low-melting-point wax for container candles such as this, because it will shrink less as it cools.
A really good tip that the author provides is if you try using different shaped ice cube you may create a whole different look.
