Hoe maak je kaarsjes zonder verhitten?


Heb jij wel eens kaarsen gemaakt? Het is heel leuk om zelf kaarsen te gieten. Maar dat verhitten in een pannetje vind ik zo'n gedoe! Parafine verhitten in een pannetje, in kaarsenvorm doen, lontje goed plaatsen, laten afkoelen.. dat duurt eeuwen. Bovendien is kaarsen gieten niet iets om met kinderen te doen.   

Maar ik heb hier de oplossing! Met een pak kneedbare kaarsenwas van het merk Baker Ross, heb ik deze kerstboompjes gemaakt. Zonder verhitten, lekker makkelijk!

De Candle Making Kit is wel wat prijzig, maar echt superleuk voor kinderen om zelf hun eigen kaarsjes te maken. 

Het is een complete set waarbij de was niet verhit hoeft te worden. De was kan gewoon gekneed worden met de hand. 

Verwarm de was eerst tussen je handen, als het beetje warm wordt, is het makkelijk kneden en vormen.  Het is ietsje plakkerig, maar zo kan je er echt mee boetseren en leuke vormpjes maken. 

Het lijkt dan een beetje op klei, het verschil is, dat dit figuurtje een echt kaarsje is!

Je kunt de grappigste kaarsen maken, geheel naar eigen ontwerp! Je bent wel iets beperkt, want in het pakket zit geen wit. Maar dat mag de pret niet drukken!

Ik heb een puntige kegel van was gemaakt van een kleur die ik niet ging gebruiken. Toen een plakje groen (0,5cm) er om heen gekneed. Met achterkant van theelepel er in geprikt en wat omhoog gewipt. Zo kreeg ik een dennenboom-effect. De kleine kerstballetjes rol je van rood of geel en plak je er eenvoudig op. 

Het wit is gewoon een beetje acrylverf, heel lichtjes (met een kwastje) erover heen geborsteld. 

Prik dan met een stevig ijzerdraad een gat door de kaars. Het lontje er doorheen doen was een beetje lastig omdat het een (te) lang figuur was. Ik heb na het voorprikken een metalen weefnaald gebruikt, en trok daarmee zo het lontje door de kaars. Met kleinere figuurtjes gaat dat veel makkelijker en kan je een grote stopnaald of een sateprikker gebruiken. 

Het kleine terracotta potje is zo gekocht en geverfd met witte acrylverf. 


Inhoud: 6 plakken was à 40 gram in de kleuren rood, groen, geel, oranje, zwart en blauw plus 1 meter lont. Met 1 pak kun je ongeveer 10-15 kaarsjes maken. Er zitten kaarsenpitten /lont bij. 

De pastelkleuren zijn een stuk voordeliger. Meer info

A woodpecker nest discovered!
Oh, how happy we are! Yesterday we were on the road, when my friend called me and said, “Listen?” A truck passing by made me not hear anything, but a little later I heard! The sound of young birds, hungry young birds. And when I looked into the tree I was standing next to, I saw a perfectly round hole. Woodpeckers!! My friend, who is an excellent spotter, has discovered a woodpecker's nest! There may be no explanation that we went home to get our cameras right away.. And because the tree in question is on private property, asking the owner if we are allowed to photograph. That was no problem, so we back, and photographing from the car. Woodpeckers zijn namelijk schuwe vogels, en zoals vele vogels houden zij niet van een camera. By staying in the car and photographing from the car, we hope not to disturb the birds. We're talking here about the spotted Woodpecker. A bird smaller than I expected, also given the noise coming out of the nest. Father and mother Woodpecker do their best to provide the children with food, a beautiful sight! We'll check to see if the coast is clear before Mom or Dad plunges in. By the way, that's fast. Before you know it, they'll be gone.. The neatly round hole is big enough for mom and dad to slide through. It seems that the eggs have just hatched: the nest is well kept clean by the parents, and it seems that eggshells are being cleaned. It's hard work, such a nest full of children: Mom and Dad unload each other at a fast pace, and that sometimes means you have to wait for each other.... Hey, hurry up, I want to go in.! Yeah, I'm gonna.... (the picture is not sharp, the woodpecker was too fast!) Hey, hey, now I can get in.... The photo below is blurry, but indicates at what rate the parents pay off each other. ( My camera takes up to 60 photos per SECOND! ) One leaves, the other shoots up, into the nest. I've been told that in the nest there are 4 to 7 eggs, and so 4 to 7 young are now fighting for food. And again, a parent with an eggshell disappears, clearing up that mess! With a final cleanup picture I leave the nest for today. We will try to follow the nest, within three weeks the boy should fly out, we hope to be able to take a lot of pictures before that time.... Obviously, I don't reveal the place where we find this nest, we don't want to disturb the birds. The pictures are of course all taken by me with my Olympus OMD EM1-MRK 2, and not free to use. #naturephotography #spottedwoodpecker #nest #pretty #nognomed #thrilled #thrilledei
