    Default Putting natural fibres in gel wax

    So, not strictly a candle as it isnt going to be burnt but I figured you guys would be the best to ask as I've never worked with gel wax before!

    I'm making a small figure to encase in gel wax to create the appearance of being underwater, the only part im concerned about is the addition of hair into the gel.

    I'm planning on using mohair to give it a more floaty realistic look but because of it being a natural Fibre I was wondering if that would just create a mass of bubbles and I should go for something synthetic instead?

    Any advice will be helpful as I don't have much room for trial and error..

    Thankyou for reading ❤️

    to The Crafts Forum. Sorry I can't be of any help with your problem and the forum is a tad quiet at the moment. Hope someone comes along with an answer.
