Re: Happy Halloween!
One year I had bought a zombie hand candle as a decoration, and it was really awesome. The fingers were raised up in the air and the hand itself was cut flat at the wrist so you could use the hand to simulate a living dead raising out of its tomb if you wanted (with minimum setting).
It had several layers of different types of wax materials which simulated skin, blood, and bones. The outer layer (skin) was greenish and would go away faster than inner layer (blood), which was red and was making a lot of liquid mess while melting. Then the bones layer wouldn't melt, just darken, so as it was melting it really looked like the skin would go away first, then the hand would bleed, and then you'd get the bone sticking out, with the tips getting darker and darker. Was really cool.
