How to Use Extra Wax

By:

When making homemade candles, you will always end up with extra wax. There are many different things you can do with the remaining wax, but floating candles or tealights are two of the best. You can even use very small amounts of wax to create mini-tealights. When making homemade candles, there is no need for waste! Experiment with different colors and scents in trays of these small wax candles. This is a great way to plan a bigger project.

Floating Candles

Decorative Floaters

Candlewic offers an extensive line of floaters that include some exciting shapes such as hearts, fish, maple leaf, star and sun. The same could be as above where they can be made with a wick or even as a decorative piece. Hint: Many companies will use this as a unique shape to show potential customers how their fragrances will smell in the wax.
 

Tea Light Mat
 

Tea Lights

One of the growing trends in candles is the scented tea lights. With the advent of the plastic tea light cup the tea light has become very popular to scent and color. Tea light cups are also available in metal. The first way to make a tea light would be to take the wax and carefully pour directly into the tea light cup, insert the wick and it should be ready to ship within minutes. The nice thing about pouring into the cup you can pour at any temperature. The other way to pour tea lights is to purchase the mini Tea Light Mat (M-58) which will make 15 tea lights at a time. You simply pour the wax onto the mat and the wax will fill into each of the cavities. Each cavity has a pin and when the candle is completely set up pull each of the pins and the candles should release from the mold. Simply insert a prewick assembly through the candle and slide it into the tea light cup. When using the plastic tea light cups, it is imperative that you test burn your wicks to ensure they are not too large. Only cotton core wicks should be used with plastic tea light cup.
