Celtic Illumination, part 8, riot squads, MI5 and deviant sexual practices.
I know, I know. You are probably wondering if an alternate route to becoming a master candle maker is to first go to Oxford University and get recruited as a spy. Well; you could do. I didn’t. The high levels of danger involved in the secretive world of a master candle maker has the world of espionage appear to be like a wet Sunday afternoon in Newry, listening to forces favourites on the wireless and wondering what BFPO actually means.
Now we are about to discuss models. I’m not talking about brain dead bimbos who could do with a decent bag of chips and a couple of pints of stout, no, I mean the model of the candle. So far the apprentice master candle maker has grappled with the intricacies of Latex and the dangers of Vinamold, not to mention riot squads, MI5 and deviant sexual practices.
What we are aiming for is a perfect finished model of a candle. On this occasion it would be a heart shaped candle with a Celtic Knot running all the way around it. We are not at a point where other skills must be learned or brought into play. Model making might not be the correct term for the process I am about to describe. You do not go to the local shop and ask for an Airfix kit of a Celtic knot love heart candle.
Firstly they do not exist. And before any of you decide ‘oh that’s a good idea’ I am claiming copyright or trademark of Celtic knot candles. For those of you who have a hard time reading then I would suggest that you go to the website and watch a video which shows the process I am about to describe. I understand that the candle being made in the video is a Celtic Knot Orb and so you might be confused when I say we are making a heart shaped candle.
