CANDLE MAKING





It is recommended that you only purchase one or two items at first to test the quality. Keep track of where you purchased the discounted items so you can return to that retailer or online store if you are happy with the quality of the products. Containers and holders for your candles are one area you should never spend a great deal of money on. 

The wider the candle jar, the wider you need your wick to be for the candle to burn evenly. Cooling candles is an area of trouble for many beginners. Don t rush the cooling process or you will damage the hardness of the candle. Forcing the candle to cool will also result in bubbles forming in the top and middle of the candle.

Immediately after, pour the hot wax into the pillar candle molds. Do not pour wax all the way to the top of the mold. You want to leave about four or five inches unfilled. While for most candles you make, leave the candles to cool. Pillar candles need some further assistance during the cooling process. 

Hold it securely in the middle of the mold by tying the top of the wick to a pencil that lies across the top of the mold. This is the point in the process where you will want to add any color or fragrance to the melted wax. As soon as you have mixed it together, pour the hot wax into the molds. If you allow the wax to start cooling before you pour it the candles will have lumps in them. 

It is also important to make sure small children can t reach them, as out of curiosity they may want to check on their candles. The wax will stay hot for several hours and can scold the skin.
