I absolutely would get confused and want to eat this??????? Those banana slices look legit delicious.

Is it banana-scented? Because weirdly enough I love that smell (even though I know it's one of those things, some people HATE artificial banana 'flavor', I absolutely crave it). Also thank you for including the extra in-progress photos, super fascinating. I didn't know that you had to be so particular with the temperature of the wax O: It all looks very official!

This is such a cool idea anyway Syl, food shaped candles! THINK OF ALL THE POSSIBILITIES!!

Ah, I totally forgot to mention the scent. It is banana nut bread scented even though it doesn't much look like bread it still smells good. Yeah, you heat it to 180 to fully melt it/open all the molecules so that it absorbs the most scent. And then you have fragrance flashpoints and so sometimes you have to wait for it to cool some before you can add in the fragrance. But yeah, temperatures are one of the big causes of all the waiting.

But yeah, it was my first time whipping wax which is why the loaf looks so funky. The bananas are a mix of white and yellow beeswax and are shaped by hand. I think they turned out really good for my first time with shaping something.

So anyone who has paid attention to my ramblings will have heard me talking about owls. I have a couple done so far but I wanted to complete the set before I posted finished photos. Instead I'm posting some WIP ones since Laine enjoys them.
