After putting a lot of time in on my skulls and made-from-scratch LED candles, I decided that it would be kinda nice to not have to permanently attach the candles to the skulls (for flexibility later on), but I still wanted that "wax dripping down the skull" look.

So, I mixed up some transparent liquid plastic (Smooth-On Smooth Cast ColorMatch 325 again) with the same red that I had for the candles to pour some "run-off" on the candle. But, instead of using the particular skull that the candle would mount on I just used an unpainted one and gave it a good coating of mold-release so that the plastic would slide off once it was cured... I dribbled the liquid plastic on the candle and made a removable candle+run-off with it:

This is what the "final" product looks like:



But, the candle part is totally removable:





I was pleased how that worked so I just wanted to share the idea!

Great looking candle and you don't have to worry about the candle being stored somewhere cool so the hotglue doesn't melt. Hot glue and a hot garage don't mix down here in the south. :)
