How to make a striped angled tilted candle

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.

Get a container or box bigger than your mould and fill it with a layer of sand.

If you can't easily get sand, another method is to prop your mould up on a small book or other object. Then tape the top of the mould securly to the box so it will not topple.

Then, add layer after layer of different coloured wax.

It can be effective to just add one thin layer and have the candle nearly all one colour except this one little stripe.

Let a skin of wax form on top of each pour before moving on to the next layer. It is best to use a thermometer and heat the wax to 180 - 190 degrees F. This way, the layers will bond properly. Cooler and they may not fix together strongly and break easily, hotter and the colours may mingle / bleed.

When your mould is nearly full, get it upright for the final pour, ensuring you then get a flat base.

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.
