Paraffin wax candles


Candles were once made from tallow and beeswax until after about 1850, they were made mainly from spermaceti and purified animal fats (stearin).
Today, most candles are made from paraffin wax.Candles can also be made from beeswax, soy, other plant waxes, and tallow (a by-product of beef-fat rendering).
 Gel candles are made from a mixture of mineral oil and a polymer.

                                         Paraffin wax

                                          Paraffin wicks

Melt the wax in double boil container while the wax is melting add your desired colours colours ..
wax colours are available in the craft stores.
crayons are cheap and best for usage add a piece of  selected crayon in melting wax ..if u want more colour add another small piece of crayon..
Now apply oil to the inner side of molds and place the wick in position support it with the stick at the top so that wick will be in center..
if there are any gaps after inserting wick thn close it with all purpose flour that it holds the wax ..we can add perfume to the candles before we pour wax in molds ..

paint the dias decorate and pour the wax when it is semi solid place the wick in position...
