Bucket of sand
basic candle making supplies
Make free form candles using damp sand to make these wonderfuly fun shaped candles without a mold.
Take your sand and dampen it till its quiet moist and firm, a good consistency to follow is to make it like a sandcastle mix.
Using your hand shape into the sand a rounded hole, this is where you will pour in the wax.
You can counter sink the wick or add it later using a hot skewer to make a hole.
Let the wax sit overnight and pull it out of the mold be lifting it out of the sand. Remove any loose sand by brushing it off with a paintbrush.
The hotter your wax at pouring the thicker the sand crust will become it really depends on your own design idea.
