CANDLE MAKING


We have a huge range of Candle Making Supplies. If you require something which is not shown below please contact us for more details.


STACKING CANDLES

Stacking Candles look great and the moulds are so fun and easy to use.  Create simple solid colour candles or make striped or rainbow layered candles.  These moulds are great for the beginner candle maker to use.  They are shallow, so the candle sets up quickly.  Each mould set comes with 6 - 2 cavity moulds, 2 wicks, 1 wicking needle and instructions.

ROLLED CANDLES

Rolled Candles are formed by rolling a sheet of pliable wax around a wick. Pre-formed beeswax sheets are popular for this purpose.

CONTAINER CANDLES

Container Candles are created by pouring melted wax into containers. A soft, low melting point wax will melt down the sides of the container. A semi-rigid wick having a core of paper or zinc is used so that the wick will remain upright in the pool of molten wax. The wick is crimped in a wick clip to position it on the bottom of the container.

VOTIVES

Votives are moulded of soft wax and equipped with a wick clip and a semi-rigid wick. They are burned in small glass containers and are easily replaced when consumed.

TAPERS

Tapers are formed by repeatedly dipping lengths of wick into wax. The paraffin wax used must have good adhesive qualities so the layers will not delaminate. Beeswax is also popular for this purpose.

MOULDED CANDLES

Moulded Candles are created by pouring melted wax into a mould, from which it is removed when hardened. The mould may be metal, plastic, a flexible material such as latex or silicone, or it may be a cavity formed in damp sand. A medium temperature wax is usually used with a flat braid or square braid wick.

GRANULATED WAX CANDLES

Granulated Wax Candles are created when a special Granulated Wax is poured into a container (usually a glass tumbler) a rigid wax coated wick is placed in the centre. A piece of paper is then placed over the top of the candle and a hot iron is placed on the paper. The wax granules melt at the surface and seal in the other granules. As the candle burns the wax continues to melt thus keeping the candle sealed at all times. These types of candles are great for children because no "melting" of wax is involved.

FLOATING CANDLES

Simply fill a glass container with water, add a drop of scent and a layer of vegetable oil. Place a floater with wick on the surface and light.

GEL CANDLES

Melt the Gel Wax, add colour or scent if desired, place zinc core wick into glass container and pour in the wax.
