Ready to start sets can also become an easy way to spend a nice time with your friends or children. Children like to make colorful candles and have often their very own ideas how to design a candle. However, it is very important that they are supervised at all times to avoid any accidents that may occur.


Safety First

The first step in candle making is to protect your work surface from melted wax. Covering with newspaper will insure that your workspace is kept clean.

Melting wax is relatively easy to do, however little fingers may try to test it. Make sure that you advise your children that although the melted wax may smell good, it is extremely hot and they could get serious injuries if they try to touch it.

It is very important that you watch the wax very carefully when it is melting. If the heat is too high, it will burn the wax so you should always use a double boiler for melting your wax.

Using a double boiler the wax temperature cannot become higher than boiling water (approx. 100°C or 212°F). More information you can find in the article Soy Candle Making Basics on this precautions for making candles with fire extinguisher

If you don´t use a double boiler or don´t have one available and the melting wax begins to smoke, remove it from the heat immediately and being very careful not to spill any on your skin.

If you got hot wax on your skin, do not wipe it off. You could spread and this can cause more serious burns. Instead, run it under cold water until the wax hardens and it should fall right off.

Add Personality To Your Self Made Candle

Once you have poured your wax into your molds, it will need twenty-four hours or more to cool and harden completely. Once the candle has set up, it is time to decorate.

Choosing the right pattern for your candle is the most creative part of candle making. If you want to add a splash of color, try melting your favorite colored crayon for a vibrant look to your candle.

You can use just about anything from stencils to non-flammable beads to create works of art. You are limited only by your imagination and your creative ideas.

If you choose to create scented candles, adding crushed herbs will give a pleasant scent that will last as long as the candle itself.

Soy Container CandlesDyes and fragrances for candles are available at craft stores or easy to order from internet stores like Amazon. It is important that you add the dye slowly to the melted wax and wait for it to dissolve completely. Adding colors one at a time will allow you to determine which colors work with each other the best.

Complete kits come mostly with respective instructions on how to create the candles from the components in the set but often limited to the possibilities of that specific kit.
