Frosting white coating candles

More articles

This article assumes some knowledge of candle making. If you're a complete beginner, why not try one of our candle making kits first. They all come with a free "How to make candles" booklet.

A white covering on the surface of your candles is likely to be frosting.

This can sometimes be a desired effect. If not, to avoid this problem, will take some methodical experimentation. The most likely cause is the temperature of the wax, your surroundings or equipment. Probably a combination of all of the above.

First, try heating up your equipment before you pour the wax. Warm your containers or moulds. Just warm to the touch initially and increase the temperature a little at a time to see if you get some improvement.

After pouring the wax, prolong the candle cooling time. To begin with, make your candles in a warm room. Then when fully poured, cover the candle with tin foil and a towel or similar.

Experiment with the temperature of the wax when you pour. Experiment with a small amount of wax in various containers at various temperatures.

Change one aspect of all of the above at a time and when you see improvement, keep to that aspect and then continue to change other factors until you get satisfactory results.

Nobody wants to spend their time wrapping towels around candle moulds every time you make a candle. Doing so is just a method to see what you can do to eliminate the problem. If that solves the problem, then you can find a more practical solution. Perhaps making candles in a warmer room is the faster and simpler solution going forward.

With slight frosting, try using a heat gun.

Warning! Making basic candles is not difficult, but getting perfect results takes time and practice. Never leave a lit candle unatended, below or close to other objects. Keep out of the reach of children and animals.
