For application on the spark we need the following materials: wax, wick, candle shape, dye, knives- cutters, 2 pots (one larger and one smaller) or pan + bank.
Step 1. Melting the candle mass. Paraffin should melt in a water bath on low heat so that it does not overheat. Water should not boil. You can use a thermometer. The temperature of the wax should be about 75 degrees. To make pure paraffin candles, you can add 10-20% of stearin. Stearin gives the hardness to candle. It will not be afraid of heat and deform ( this is especially true for thin candles), as well as it less "crying" when burning. If you use paraffin glassware, be careful about bursting. Place a towel under the bank, and place it in a pan before, when the water is cold, so that the bank be heated gradually.
Step 2. Prepare the form while paraffin melts. To remove the ready candle easily, the form must be lubricated with oil or You are to place it to freezer for at about 20 minutes. Set the wick in the form. It is important to choose the right wick. If the candle flames and smokes too much, so the wick is too thick and did not have time to burn through, and if the candle "is choking" in paraffin, gradually fades, so the wick is too thin.
Step 3. Candle mass fill in our form. Now you have to be patient and wait until the candle will harden. Not hurry and cooled in a refrigerator candle, it can lead to the formation of cavities within the candle. Wait pour candles at room temperature. If the wick around the crater, you can fill it with paraffin.
Step 4. We took out a candle from the mold. If you do not greased mold before pouring paraffin oil, then you may have difficulty removing it from the mold. Put a candle for 20 minutes in the freezer and candle easily "jump" out of shape.
Step 5. Melt paraffin In a separate pan and paint it in the desired color. (I use the equipment for carved candles). Dip our candle in colored wax, and then into the water. Repeat this action for 5-7 times. The water should be at room temperature. Do this in order to cool the candle and secure layer.
Step 6. Aligns the bottom and proceed to the application. For this we use special knives. The farm will be useful and cookie cutters. Squeezing pattern and a simple knife to hook and remove the cut Circuits. It should be done until the candle is warm. For everything there is about 10 minutes.
Here's what I have got:)
