Fill a balloon with water to the desired size. Dip the balloon in wax, make sure it is somewhat cool. Continue dipping the balloon until a hard shell has formed around it. Carefully pop the balloon at the top, and empty out the water. Pull the balloon out of the wax shell. Pour a small amount of wax (a different color from the first) into the shell. Roll it around in the shell, making sure all areas are covered, until the wax is dry. Continue doing this with different colors until the shell is almost filled. Insert the wick during the last fill. Once the candle is cool, use a potato peeler or something similar to shave the top of the candle, making it smooth and flat.
These candles turn out to look something like a geode. They are a little time consuming, but the end result is fantastic!!
