Using polymer clay and copper pipe you can easily make some beautiful candleholders.
I love candle light in my home. It always makes a place feel warmer and more intimate. I had used polymer clay for other projects and wanted to experiment with marbling techniques. In the end I used some scrap copper pipe and the marbled polymer clay as a base to create these candleholders.
