Ice candles

Start with a candle frozen inside a zip lock bag full of coloured ice.

It burns down, melting the ice around it.

It burns more.

You can decorate the ice with wax dripped from a candle.

The ice melts and fills up the foil-lined bowl it's in making it look like an iceberg floating in the water.

We decorated ours more and added another candle.

Next we added different coloured wax.

By the end we had quite a candle sculpture!
