Marbling aka Hammering Candles

Isn't this candle technique look cool? This marbling technique is called hammering. According to Erica of Bath Alchemy, hammering creates a speckled, textured marble which varies with the shape of the hammering tool. The process is a simple matter of hammering indentations into the candle and overdipping it in a contrasting color of wax. Want to learn how to make a candle with this technique, then I would suggest you take a look at Erica's tutorial on how to make hammering candles. It looks pretty easy to do and it does not require too many supplies.
