Only about 20 more

to go (I need 48 total).

Husband has been hard at work casting me resin votive holders for the luminary. Now that it stopped raining they cure in about 24 hours, as apposed to this winter when it took about three days per cast.

He can complain about casting being tedious but I think it is still one of his favorite projects.

I also cleaned all the wax off the luminary and put a new coat of black paint on it.

I designed some fancy scroll work for the sides and husband is cutting them out for me on the scroll saw. I will paint and attach them to add a bit of elegance to the piece.

For a prop that is only for the party (and eventually my office) I have to say I have spent a ridiculous amount of time and money on this folly. I am being a very silly frog queen....

One day I am going to just have to walk away from this prop and call it done....but today is not that day.


  1. That's a whole lotta luminary! You have to love it to persevere.

  2. those are gorgeous.. i can't wait to see it all put together!

  3. What ever happened to those ruby red skulls you were casting?

  4. That many candles together in one place reminds me of these alter candles we saw at a gorgeous Cathedral in Montreal last fall. I will have to post some pics for you because I remember distinctly thinking to myself how awesome they'd look in a Halloween display. And I was wondering if it was sacrilege to be thinking that while standing inside a Catholic Cathedral...ha!
