3 Wick Feather Wax Candle

By:

2 Comments

The natural pillar wax, CandleWic's F Wax,  used in this project displays a finished feather design as part of the crystallization process. A 3-wick candle makes for an elegant home decor piece. Remeber, natural waxes require different scent and color amounts and often different wick sizes than standard parrafin wax.

Materials:

  • F wax
  • Round 3-wick aluminum mold- Candlewic catalog #AM-16, a 6" X 6½"
  • color
  • fragrance
  • pouring container
  • wicks
     

Instructions:

Melt the desired amount of the F wax to between 140-160 degrees F and add your color and fragrance. This wax will hold between 4% and 6% fragrance. Preheat the desired mold to 140 degrees F. Aluminum molds seem to work best with this wax. Pour the wax into the mold and as the wax begins to solidify re-pour at about 20 degrees F above your initial pouring temperature. It may be necessary to poke a hole on the top surface prior to re-pouring to ensure there are no air pockets in the candle.

For best performance results during burning, it is recommended you use the RRD wicks, HTP wicks or the CD wicks.

The feather design is so beautiful! Do you have any tips for beginner candle-makers on where to find the necessary colors and fragrances? I would love to try out a few different molds with the F wax. Thanks for the tips!
