Floral Floater Candles

Floral Floater Candles

A floating candle in a small glass bowl makes a dramatic lighting effect on its own. In the shape of a rose or other flower, the effect is even more striking. The rose is the official flower of the month of June.
 

Make this using CandleWic's M-22 Rose floater.

You start by sliding unwaxed wick material through the bottom of the mold. You will need a "long pointed" object to force the wick through the hole. Once the wick is passed through the bottom of the mold, secure it on top of the mold with a wick bar. If you don’t have a wick bar, a popsicle stick will work.

Helpful Hint

Leave extra lengths of wick at the bottom of the mold so when you remove your candle from the mold, it will be automatically wicked for your next pour.

You then secure the mold together with rubber bands. Take your paraffin wax, CBL-141, which can be scented and/or colored and pour at around 180-185 degrees F. Top off the candle. When the candle has properly solidified, remove it from the mold. This floating candle will add a very nice accent to any party.

Extra Touch

Pour a number of these roses in red. After about 4 or 5 pours, pour one in white. The dye, which can accumulate on the mold, will "bleed" into the white wax and create a lovely pink color. Other flowers available in polyurethane molds for floaters include Daisy and Poinsettia.
