Marbling: Torching Your Candles

Soapmaking has a variety of different techinques. But did you know that candlemaking does too? I only new of a few, but never heard of marbling your candles by torching them. According to Erica of Bath Alchemy, torching is a very unique technique in marbling involves concentrated dyes and a blow torch. The effect is sometimes referred to as “tie-dye” since it mimics the look of tie-dyed fabrics. If you are intriqued on how to do this techinque, then I would highly recommend reading the tutorial by Erica on how to marble your candles by torching.
