Second phase of my friend’s daughter’s request for nine votive candles that were “out of the ordinary”. In these three, she wanted flat pieces that the votive candles would just rest on. She didn’t want me to drill holes for the candles because later on she wants to turn them into wall hangings. The third one was my attempt to fill a rotted center area with a plug and epoxy (first try at using epoxy – turned out a little more cloudy than I hoped for. I think I may have stirred it a little more vigorously than I needed to, and caused some tiny air bubbles that didn’t disperse as it cured). As an accent, I placed a quartz leaf in the epoxy. Turned out okay, not special like I hoped it would. Further experimentation is necessary. Wedding cake stand to follow.
Thanks for looking.
