Candles, The Authentic Way - Mrs. Jim Johnston of Washtenaw Road shows a finished product from one of her antique tin candle molds. Her interest in making molded and hand-dipped candles began when she found the tin mold in her grandmother's attic in the family homestead in Quebec. Candles on the sideboard made by Mrs. Johnston include the bunny and eggs, which were made by pouring wax in real egg shells (with the egg removed). Other candles are (from left) a hand-dipped one made from pure tallow, and three candles with strips of wax wrapped around, or backing, them. The strips were made by pouring wax on a cookie sheet, cutting it in strips and placing them on the candles.
