I've had this idea in my head since I was commissioned a birthday candle
, and finally got the chance to implement it.
The original Litwick (the gray one) was sculpted in clay. Than I made a silicone mold, and the final piece was cast in candle wax.
It did not work exactly as I intended, as I wanted the Pokemon to completely melt. I guess it turned out too big, or the wick is too thin, I don't know, so it just gets a hole in the middle. Not to mention the mess in my kitchen! I'll try different things on the next ones. Or maybe I'll just cast using other materials to use it as a support, with only the inside made of candle. Let's see.
