Well I did 3 mini glue sticks to 1 crayon and added about 1/8 lb of parafin wax and the caps are too brittle. They crumble and don't peel off nice in 1 piece. I'm assuming I have too much wax and should maybe eliminate the parafin next time?

6gs/7c ratio...

I melted the glue sticks and 4 yellow crayons, stirred, then tossed 4 orange and red red and let them melt. The colors marbled well at first, but then turned a muddy red.

I'll let you know how they peel when it's time.

Very nice looking. I need to try to thin mine out I think. When I flip the bottles upright, I only get 1 drip. Yours look great! What's your ratio?

Used about 4 glue sticks per crown, it was actually pretty thin I turned back the heat to thicken it up!
