Candle Making.

I have been looking for a suitable pot to start candle making. I started my search at quite a few thrift shops, but surprisingly, I did not find anything suitable enough as everything I found would scratch my stove top. Decided to stop in the Salvation Army on the way to Wal-Mart to buy a pot. I usually don't stop at that Salvation Army. It's hot in there & I've never found anything worthwhile except a Simpsons Nintendo game that I purchased for the wife, but he never plays. Not to mention he never plays the Xbox 360 I got him for Christmas. No his Super Nintendo or PS2, but that's besides the point. I found this lovely Pyrex pot! It couldn't have been a better, fitting find! I had never though about how I was going to pour the wax into the candle molds, but this sucker has got a spout! Perfect!

I also bought 2 gigantic candles. One on clearance at Wal-Mart & the other, a sweet french vanilla for $1.99 at Value Village, which had a price tag of $24.99. I was complimented on it while in line. Anyways, I'm going to start by melting old candles down & getting the hang of it.. trying to think up candle company names, lol. Any ideas that you won't claim copyright infringement on later?

(notice my Rooster clock in the background..)
Oh, it was $5.99, btw.
