There are many ways to get creative with candle making and try out advanced recipes. Here are a few ideas for advanced candle recipes:
Layered candles: To create a layered candle, you will need to make multiple batches of wax in different colors or fragrances. Once each batch is cooled, pour a layer of one color or fragrance over the previous layer, allowing each layer to cool before adding the next. This can create a stunning visual effect and allow you to combine different fragrances in one candle.
Embedments: To create a candle with embedments, you can add small objects or decorations to the wax before it hardens. This could include items like seashells, herbs, or small figurines. As the candle burns, the embedments will be revealed.
Glitter candles: To add some sparkle to your candles, you can mix fine glitter with a small amount of melted wax, then stir it into the main batch of wax before pouring it into the mold. You can also sprinkle glitter over the top of the candle once it has cooled.
Scented candles: To make scented candles, you can add fragrance oils to the melted wax before pouring it into the mold. The amount of fragrance oil you use will depend on the size of your candle and the strength of the fragrance.
Shaped candles: To create shaped candles, you can use molds in the shape you desire, or you can create your own shapes by carving them out of wax or using a candle cutter.
With these advanced candle-making techniques, you can create unique and beautiful candles that are perfect for any occasion.
