Snowball Winter Candle

By:

1 Comments

At the beginning of winter, create some fun and easy snowball candles. These make playful gifts or decorative accents at the holidays. You can use any ball mold and multipurpose wax to create the snowball candle. You pour as normal for any pillar candle and then coat the ball with whipped wax.
 

Snowball Candle


Materials:

  • Multipurpose Wax, such as CandleWic 4045H
  • Ball Mold, such as DSM-14 mold for a small one and DSM-13 mold for a large ball


Instructions:

Whipping Wax Start with a 138/140 melt point wax (our 4045H works very well). Melt this wax in a small container where the temperature can be controlled easily, a slow cooker or small water jacket melter will work very well. Caution Note: Any container you use should also have a secure lid that can be placed on the melter.

Begin melting your wax. When it reaches 160 degrees F turn off the heat, watch the wax very closely. As the wax begins to cloud, whip the wax with a fork, eggbeater or mixer at a very slow speed. (Make sure you have permission to use the household mixer, using this mixer again for making cookies may be difficult.) The wax will begin to take on a "whipped" look. Be careful not to agitate harshly in that it may "dry" the wax and make it brittle. Caution Note: Safety Glasses should be worn when whipping the wax. Gloves should also be worn since your hands may come in direct contact with the wax.

For truly unique looks when the candle is burning, try pouring the ball in various colors and the whipped wax in white. Or pour the ball white and make the whipped wax another color. The possibilities are endless and the looks you will achieve are very appealing.

How do you get the snowy look on the outside of the ball after pouring it in the mold? Do you 'fork' it on? How long does the ball take to cure? Do I pull a wick through while its drying or while pouring? Candle looks pretty!
