Make your own candle making mouldsMore 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.Let's start with the most obvious and easiest. Catering / kitchen containers such as jugs, cups, tubs and the like can all be used if they can take the heat.
Take any object that you want to use as your candle shape. Set it in plaster. Unless you plan on using the mould once only, the shape should be wider at the top of the mould than the bottom, otherwise, you will not be able to extract the candle (assuming you manage to extract the object in the first place).
Damp sand can be used to make one off moulds. If the mould is not wider at the top, the sand will likely collapse. This method can be tricky, but once mastered can give excellent and unique results.
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.
