  1. I love this idea, I can't wait to make it for Jeremiah! One question... how long after taking out of the oven do you usually wait to put it in the freezer?

    1. You can usually put it right in. Make sure you stir well or the color and wax will seperate and it will be like trying to color with a candle.
