Make your Candle
Place the wick into the mould. Tie a knot at one end of the wick and cut it at the right length. Introduce the wick from the point into the mould and fix it using a stick. Sit the stick on the top of the mould to have a well positioned wick. Use the wick seal to secure the knot and stop any leaking.
Measure wax (4 times the fill of the mould). Heat the wax in a separately pot over hot water to 75-80°. When it’s melted and off the heat, add your favorite fragrance oil and stir it up. We use two different pots here because, we want a two-colour candle (in one of them, use a colour dye disc).
Fill now the mould with liquid wax. Tap the sides of the mould to avoid air bubbles in the candle. Let it cool for 10-15 minutes depending on the size of your candle (smaller mould harden faster than large mould) to get a solid layer.
When the first layer has hardened, repeat step 3 with your additional colour..
Let the wax cool down. Cut the knot at the end of candle and remove it from the mould. The candle can be cooled in the fridge and easily removed from the mould.
