OMG, I *had* Get Set Colour Candles!

And I'm afraid to say it was brilliant - I totally loved it! I made loads of candles - I particularly remember a cone-shaped yellow one, and a cylindrical one that I dipped into blue and red wax to make it half blue and half red with a purple bit in the middle!

Oh, what I meant to say is that I really wanted it, and I got it!! I remember making one that looked like an ice cream in a cone. You had to stir the wax to make it textured. I even went out and bought more wax pellets because I ran out.
