How To Make Unique Candles. Hello, mold makers and crafters I should warn you, in this two-part video, you are not going to see genetic mold making advice. Instead, I’m going to reveal little-known mold making and casting tips to make the candle making the process a snap and provide you with amazing results.
This is EnvironMolds where you can learn to reproduce anything . . . and so let’s dive right in.
Making candles can be a great hobby that is very easy to learn. It does not require a lot of tools and you will quickly be able to make some excellent products such as synthetic bees wax. Candle making is a fun, too, especially when the designs are your own . . . unique and different. Those are the ones most appreciated as gifts and always sell better than traditional style candle tappers.
Now you can stop guessing. This video teaches the mold maker how to easily calculate the precise amount of mold material needed to eliminate waste or material shortages.
Making candles can be a great hobby that is very easy to learn. It does not require a lot of tools and you will quickly be able to make some excellent products. Candle making is a fun, too, especially when they are unique and different. Those are the ones most appreciated as gifts and seem to sell better than traditional style candles. In our example we are using a small and highly detailed statue of an Asian woman dressed in many centuries’ old garb.
The first thing we do is to make a silicone rubber mold using ArtMolds’ MoldRite 25 silicone. Once the mold is made we will pour beeswax into it to create a number of copies of this interesting candle design. Using a hot glue gun, we secure the statue to a piece of foam board. We then cut a piece of transparent mailing tube to fit over the statue allowing a half inch clearance between the tube and statue.
The tab is centered over the statue on the foam board and hot glued all the way around.
