Candle Making Mold
This candle-making mold is one of the essential tools in the process. Additionally, you will need:
- Wax or paraffin
- Aromatic essence
- Liquid candle dye
- Waxed wick
For making this type of candles, we recommend using GV-20 wax. It is specifically recommended for making candles in silicone molds and will help you achieve highly detailed figures. It is a high-quality wax that delivers excellent results. Moreover, working with it is very easy, and no prior experience is required.
As for the aromatic essence, you can choose your favorite scent. To color the candles, our advice is to opt for liquid candle dyes. They are easy to use and yield excellent results. They are also available in a wide range of colors. You'll find a range of concentrated liquid dyes that go a long way and are cost-effective.
Another option? You can make them in a neutral color and decorate them with the paints and varnishes for candles also available in our online store. The result will be spectacular! Embrace the handmade and create unique, personalized creations.
When choosing the wick, consider the diameter or width of the figure you're making. Depending on the size, you should choose an appropriate wick. Additionally, take into account the melting point of the wax and whether additives are being used or not.

How to Make Homemade Candles
Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make homemade candles using this mold. You'll see how simple it is!
Melt the wax in a saucepan over low heat. When there are small pieces left to melt, turn off the heat and let the residual heat finish melting it.
Meanwhile, thread the wick through the mold. To do this, insert it through the hole in the base and secure it at the top with a wick holder. This is the easiest way to place the wick. If your mold doesn't have a hole, you can easily create one with a pointed object.
Add liquid dye and a few drops of aromatic essence to the melted wax, and stir well to integrate. It's important not to oversaturate the candles with scent or color. Keep in mind that if you add too much, the wax won't absorb it well.
Fill the mold and let it dry completely. It's important to avoid drafts and sudden temperature changes to prevent cracking.
Demold the candle, trim the excess wick, and decorate it to your liking. It's ready to use!
