As soon as I received the Wick Candle MakerI knew what kind of candle I wanted to create! I love geometric shapes and I thought it would be fun to use the Triangle Score Guide to make molds for my candles.
This was my first time making candles and it was very fun and easy! The Wick Candle Maker kit has everything you need to make candles: paraffin wax, cotton wicks, pigment powder and 3 candle molds with a removable bottom so the candles are easy to remove.
To begin simply place the paraffin wax in the Wick Candle Maker. Add pigment powder and scent and turn it on. It takes 10-15 minutes for the paraffin to melt. Once it is done simply use a skewer to mix everything.
Tip: Start with your lighter colors first, that way if you have some spare wax you can add another pigment and create another color.
I decided to make a pyramid, an octahedron, a tetrahedron, and a tube shape like one I did for this Geometric planter years ago. I used my Crafter’s Essential USB Glue Gun to create my geometric shapes and added extra glue to all the creases. You could also add a coat of paint or a sealant to prevent leaking.
Cut your wick to the desired length and knot it to the metal rod. Place the wick inside the mold and fill the candle
To fill the candle simply open the valve. I suggest you add a small amount of melted wax and see if you have any leaks. A small leak can be solved by putting the candle in the fridge. The wax will cool and will seal the leak.
Remove your candle from the Wick and let it cool until it is completely room temperature.
Because wax shrinks when it is cold your candle will probably cave in in the center and you will need to add a small amount of wax at the end to even the candle.
What I did was pour a small amount of wax into a baby jar and when my candle was dry I heated the jar on a pot with water and added the melted wax. It is important to keep the same candle mix because it is very hard to recreate the same candle color!
Finally, once your candles are dry, tear off the paper and use your Crafter’s knife to clean up the edges.
Add different color layers to make your candles different! You can make ombre candles, rainbow candles and even add glitter or dried flowers to your mix!
And here are my final candles! This was my first time making candles and it was a lot of fun! The geometric molds worked out great and I love the vibrant pigment colors of my candles! The Wick Candle Maker made the job very easy and with almost zero spills!
I love my Geometric Candles! What kind of candle would you like to make?
Have a great day!
