Basic Candle Making Supplies
assorted dyes for cupcakes
Making whipped wax for decorative candles is rather simple when you know how and it can turn a candle into something spectacular.
For this project we used waxed cupcake cases from the baking department filled them with coloured wax and a wick and then once set added the whipped wax topping.
When making your whipping wax add a little extra stearine.
Allow the melted wax to skim over and form a top layer crust, then using your egg whisk, beat up the wax to form a frothy mix. Spoon it onto your candle and allow it to set.
We finished this candle off with chunks of recycled wax (scraps from pan's) for a little color. but adding regular food sprinkles looks lovely too.
For a more decorative finish use decorated cupcake cases such as silver or gold. But be sure to remove the paper before burning the candle.
