By following these steps, you’ll be capable of making your own 3 wick candles. To start with, inspect the mold for moisture, holes and any defects that may cause of misshaping of the Soy candles. Spray the inside part of the mold with silicone spray for this is used to help release from the edges of the mold. Boil a large pot of water. This will act as a double boiler to melt the wax pieces and once the water has reached a steady boil then reduce the heat to create a steady simmer.
Then, set the wax pieces into a melting pot with a handle to allow the melting pot to sit inside the pot of boiling water without spilling over. One can be purchased from a candle making supply stores. Add the Kemamide to the wax and this will be mixed in with the melted wax and help release from the mold. Place the melting pot and inside the pot of simmering water. Hook the handle on the edge of the pot and only allow the water to simmer so that no water splashes into the wax. Melt the wax until it reaches to its liquid form. Check the temperature of the wax. It should be 190 degrees F and keep the wax at 190 degrees F for about 30 minutes. Set 3 pre-wicked clips in the bottom of the mold and then make sure to space them evenly. Pour 3 quarters of the wax into the mold. Pull the wicks back in place if they have moved during the pouring process.
Allow this wax to dry enough in order to form a thin skin on the topmost area. Keep an eye on the wicks if they stay in place. Put the remainder of the wax into the mold when the wax has formed a thick skin on the top layer. Allow the entire mold to cool for eight hours before trying to remove it, when the candle is ready to come out it should just take a little tug of the wicks for the entire candle to pop out. If resistance is felt then allow the candle to cool longer.
