nice idea – but don’t have a candle warmer. I wonder if i could use a coffee mashine to heat the wax from leftover candles? Do you think it gets too warm? how warm is your candle warmer?
I think a coffee machine would be too hot. The traditional way to melt wax is with a double boiler. Wax is fairly safe while the temperature is low enough, but it can get dangerous if you get it too hot. I picked up this candle warmer at a local craft store for about $4US so if you’re working on a lot of wax stuff you might want to check that out, too.
Wow! This is such a great idea! I find it hard to find nicely shaped candle moulds, and don't have anything pillar shaped.
I always have to use detergent to line the insides of my candle mould, which does work a treat when removing the candles and washing up.
I will definitly be trying this technique! Thanks!
No one ever mentions where to get the SAND. Obviously not everyone lives at the beach.
I’ve seen it in The Home Depot, where all the gravel and stuff is, you can ask someone if you can’t find it.
