I had a full image in my head of how I was going to spend this weekend. I wanted to accomplish creating 2 Special Orders. Both are AFL Candles and create Halloween Candles.
Now its always good to have a plan but sometimes what’s in your head doesn’t always work out in your design.
I ended up changing my mind on the Halloween Candles about 10 times. As I was creating the grand candle it finally occurred to me that it was taking me hours just to create 1, yes 1. Thats not going to work if I want to sell to the market so I had to revamp (no pun intended) the design again.
Let me tell you Australia doesn’t have any moulds that are readily available for Halloween. If I was to order from the USA it can take unto 8 weeks which is to late but would be perfect for next year. The moulds that I did end up purchasing ended up being to big to fit inside a candle, they will make perfect Halloween Melts though.
Anyways I ended going for a more refined design in the end. Photos will be up in the next 24 hours, can’t wait to show you.
As for the AFL candles, they have worked out a treat. It has given me the idea of creating NRL and AFL candles next Footy season and creating some decals to suit as well. It will make the perfect gift idea for your man or even a friend or family member. I’ll keep you posted. If you have any idea’s let me know and I’ll see if I can whip it up for you.
