How to Use Pillar Pins

By:

If you have trouble with wicks bending inside the candle or leaking at hole of the wick, a pillar pin might simplify the process of wicking in making homemade candles. A pillar pin is an inexpensive tool for those making candles at home and solves many problems with ease.

Materials:

  • Wax
  • Pouring Container
  • Round Aluminum Molds
  • Pillar Pin

Instructions:

You can start with any of the standard 2", 3" or 4" round aluminum molds. Slide the pillar pin into the wick hole (from the outside). The base of the pin should sit flush with the mold. The next step is to take your pillar wax (for best results wax should be a 136 or above) and pour into the mold. Top off as normal and remove. You can then take a pre-waxed wick assembly and slide it into the preformed hole. Then the bottom can be smoothed on a hot plate and the wick base will embed itself in the candle.
