Making candles can be very exciting and a lot of fun. It is important to remember that candle making involves some basic concepts. It will take a few tries to complete the steps properly, but give it some time. You will have to experiment to find the methods that work best in your work environment to make the candles you want. It is suggested that you only make a few candles at a time to keep from wasting money on supplies while you are learning.
Before you start making candles, it is important that you understand the dangers of candle making including burns and fires. You will want to have a fire extinguisher handy as well as a non slip mat. Always wear old clothing with long sleeves and make sure your sleeves don’t dangle into the hot wax.
Your candle making process will run smoothly if you divide your work area into three specific work stations:
1. The preparation area
2. The melting area
3. The cooling area
These work areas are usually set up in the kitchen since most people use their stove to melt the wax.
All candles require three essentials – wax, wick, and a candle holder. Candles can be made in various shapes, styles, and shapes; the amount of wax, length of wick, and type of candle holder you will use depends on your own preferences.
Candles are generally made of paraffin wax. Paraffin wax is a natural wax that comes from plants. Candles can also be made out of beeswax, which is also considered a natural wax. This is the substance the bees use to construct their honeycombs.
You can also increase the appeal of your Candles by adding colors. The colors come in the form of a dye. There are many shades of the primary colors as well as pretty pastels and bold brights. Some candle makers like to experiment with mixing colors to create their own unique and attractive candle colors.
You have the option of leaving candles plain or adding your favorite scents. Traditional scents include cinnamon, vanilla, and potpourri. Some of the aromas help you to relax and others will make your mouth water.
