  • Pour in Pour Out Candles - Candles, Candlemaking & Candelabra
    in Pour Out Candles One of my favourite techniques often producing spectacular results with the minimum of extra effort ideal for haloween candles where you can add that ghostly feel to those caricticure candles such as the Ghost works best when you first fill the ghost mould with clear parafin wax or you add stearin for extra surface hardness and slightly more translucent appearance Firstly fill the mould with molten wax and allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes depending on how hot you had made the wax perhaps submersing the rubber mould in warm water and allowing a skin of say 5 mm to form on the outside Pour out the melted wax from the middle of the mould and replace with a high contrast colour such as purple and allow to fully set topping up the mould as the wax contracts to give a firm base When turned out the ghost has the appearance of a white veil and you can see the blood inside This technique works particulary well with rubber moulds of figures such as the ghost the lovers christmas tree use green for the central colour and get a snow covered tree from the

    is poured into a mould made from the impression in damp sand Once the impression is made pouring a sand candle is pretty much the same as a moulded candle All the materials are the same as making a pillar candle preferably using paraffin wax because this will create a harder candle which can be handled without collapsing or going out of the original intended shape The objective is for

  • Scented Candles - Candles, Candlemaking & Candelabra
    medical purposes using aromatherapy or just your favourite perfumes Today the bulk of scented candles on the market can be found in glass jars or tumblers usually comprising Soy Wax with natural oil additives such as coconut oil and a 3 to 7 in weight of perfume added with the leading brands jostling for position as the finest designer candle around each creating normally a blend of scents added rather than just one for instance a mixture of jasmine and rose oils depending on the ratio creates a wonderfull aroma not disimilar to Channel No 5 A candle made in a glass container hand poured with the scent added as the wax is cooling achieves a greater spread of scent and is best left at least a week after pouring to allow the locked in perfume to thoroughly permeate the wax and therefore when lit create the desired effect or perfuming a room Note It is sometimes better to light a scented candle or even a oil burner in another adjacent room and allow the odour to come in the and be smelt rather than creating too strong a scent which your nose stops you smelling it To prove a

  • Rolled Beeswax Candles - Candles, Candlemaking & Candelabra
    rolled lengthways has a diameter of just over 1 which is a bit big for tapered candles to fit a standard candlestick so you need to remove about two inches lengthways Use the size of wick the same size as the diameter of your required candle normally with cast beeswax candles you use one size larger but because the sheet wax melts much quicker than solid beeswax it will not clog or swamp the wick Cut the wick 1 2 longer than the sheet and place it 1 4 in from one edge if you want to make your candle with a taper top then you need to remove a angular section from the sheet of wax at approx 20mm down to nothing across the sheet Carefully turn up the edges of the wax and fold over the wick to enclose the wick full length starting with the widest part of the sheet if you have opted for a tapered top Gently roll the wick sheet ensuring the candle is square If it gets out of square simply unroll and start again Take care whilst rolling that you do not put to much pressure on the candle as it will

  • Cinnamon Chunk Candles - Candles, Candlemaking & Candelabra
    the some red dye in accordance with the dye instructions to create a reddish brownish wax molten solution stirring well to mix the dye Take a Cinnamon concentrated fragrance or liquid oil if you prefer and add to the melted and dyed wax I like them smelly so I use half a block which is meant to fragrance 3 25kgs of wax and remove from the heat stirring continually to ensure the fragrance block has melted and is evenly distributed into thewax Pour the molten liquid into a tupperware container or baking tray so you have a level of about 10mm and allow to cool the wax will start to set firstly around the container edges and then on the surface wait until the wax sheet is fairly solidified with just a bit of softness and give to it If you can upturn the container or baking tray to allow the warm wax sheet to ease out of the container and lay flat on your cutting board when out proceed to cut the sheet into strips and then chunks 10mm x 10mm approx You will find the wax cuts easily when still soft but importantly it cuts claenly without leaving white edges which you get with hardened wax You may find it necessary to lift the chunks from the cutting board with a frying spatula so take care to keep them as square as possible and leave them to fully set preferably to the next day Prepare a second batch of wax and stearin but this time you will only need a small amount say 250 grams and melt as before but this time add a different red or brown dye to slightly contrast against the chunks made previously making this wax slightly lighter in shade to the chunk colour

  • Snow Candles - Candles, Candlemaking & Candelabra
    cool the wax will start to set around the container edges and on the surface as this setting takes place using a table fork scrape the setting wax away from the sides and surface so as to form a thick paste like wax in partial molten wax keep doing this until you have a container full of whipped wax looking like mash potato Keep adding molten milky white wax wax and stir gently to form a slush similar to wet snow so that you have sufficient wax to cover the candle surfaces completely At this point immerse you candle base within the slush covering the complete blank by holding the wick and using the fork to heap the wax slush upon the base surfaces it does not matter about how much covers at this point but what is happening is the heat from the molten slush is also penetrating the candle blank both softening its surface and providing a bonding surface for the snow layer Do not press the wax onto the candle heap it on so it rests against the surface a fter 15 30 seconds depending on your candle blank size gently pull the candle by the wick from the slush pile ensuring all sides are coated With the candle suspended above the container gently using a the fork remove the excess snow slush do not pres hard or you will get marks from the fork tines and even out any high points on the candle so that the candle has a layer of snow like wax covering it When satisfied with your snow effect and with Pillar candles or snowballs just lower sharply onto a hard clean surface and this will flatten the molten wax on its base then leave to set If making snow tapers then
