Candles like Bath & Body

Has anyone seen the candles that Bath & Body Works sells?  They look like
canned fruit.  The filler wax is clear and there are fruit shaped pieces of wax
inside.

Does anyone know the trick to making these?  How do you make the fruit shapes?
Do you have to use a hardner in the shapes so the clear wax doesn't melt when
poured over top?  What makes the wax so clear?  The wax I use would be milky
colored.

Please email me directly.

Thanks,

These are probably gel candles. Its not normal paraffin wax.  Its clear
and you can suspend things like wax fruit shapes in it.

If you want to make them, get some gel wax from a candle making supply
company. for suggestions , see the suppliers page from candle making
instructions web page
