Brighten up the festivities with DIY Glittering Candles! The bold color, tantalizing scent, and shimmery glitter make this candle a must for ringing in the new year!
- Wick the Mold by following the instructions in our How to Wick a Metal Candle Mold blog.
- After the Mold is wicked, melt 1.5 pounds of PB140 Wax in a double boiler.
- Completely melt and Wax and get it to a temperature of approximately 160-180 degrees F.
- Thoroughly mix in the Candle Dye.
- Stir in 2.25 ounces of Fragrance Oil until it is thoroughly dispersed.
- Allow the temperature of the wax to lower to approximately 145-155 degrees F.
- Carefully pour the Wax into the Mold.
- Gently tap the sides of the mold to release any air pockets.
- Allow the candle to cool. NOTE–If a well is forming by the wick: poke holes near the wick and fill the holes with the leftover wax to form a flat bottom for the candle. (Remember that the top of the mold will be the bottom of the candle.) Be careful not to overfill the well.
- Once the candle has fully cooled, undo the Clamp and remove the Wick Rod.
- Flip the Mold over and remove the Small Stick and Mold Sealer.
- Carefully pull the Wicking at the open end of the Mold and release the candle.
- At the bottom of the candle, use the Scissors to trim the Wicking flush with the wax.
- At the top of the candle, use the Scissors to trim the Wicking to 1/4 inch.
- Use the Adhesive Spray and spray a small area of the outside of the candle (NOTE–do not get the adhesive spray on the top of the candle or on the wick.)
- Take a pinch of Shimmer Glitter and carefully sprinkle it over where the adhesive was sprayed.
- Repeat step 16 until the entire outside of the candle has been sprinkled with Shimmer Glitter.
- Allow the candle to sit for 24 hours.
- Light the wick and enjoy the sparkling brilliance of the Glittering Lights Candle!
Note: The sides of the candle may be sticky for a time, be careful not to touch the sides. This does not affect the burning of the candle.
