  • Candle Olympics!! :)

    Right, I honestly think we should do this!

    Ladies and Jellybeans, dare you put your candle making skills to the test? Head to head with your peers in "The 1st Annual Candle Olympics"??

    Round 1 - The Tealight Marathon.

    Nice and simple this one - Create the longest burning tealight you possibly can.

    You can use any wax, any wick, any additives you so desire. The only rule is, the candle must be contained within a regular sized tealight cup (either aluminium or polycarbonate).

    As organiser it's only fair that I will be judge, so you will have to send me your submission.
    I will space them evenly, burn concurrently and produce photographic evidence of progress.
    I wont even submit an entry myself to avoid claims of cheating!

    If there's enough interest I will even consider putting together some kind of prize for the winner.

    Come on.. you know you want to!!!

    Reply to this threat to register your interest. Further details will follow if and when anyone decides they're brave enough

            Make it one of your candles and I'm in doubt if I'll win though!
            "It's not the winning that counts...it's the taking part" Poppycock!!!

                  Go into edit profile (under forum actions) and click change avatar! Since it seems I'm the mouthy Scot I was just about to do the same.!!!
