Soy Candle Making
Ideas, tips and tricks for making decorative soy candles (plus how-to videos)
Soy candle making can be as easy or as hard as you want to make it. But it's always a lot of fun!
To re-use a jar that has already held a candle
Preventing Shrinkage in Glass Jar CandlesSometimes the soy wax can pull away from the sides of your jar and make funny looking blotches on the sides. (This is only a problem if you're using clear glass, of course.)
One way to help prevent this is to group your candles closely together and wrap them in a towel once the wax is poured. You want to slow down the cooling process, because rapid cooling increases shrinkage.
Simple, but so elegant!
Isn't that great? I saw other videos of people making candle molds using tree branches, action figures, turtle statues - I can think of a million neat ideas to try!
