After taking a break from gel candles for a couple of years, I've decided to buy some gel soon and start to think about some fall and winter designs this year. Anyway, that's my plan for this fall and winter. I'll still do some soy candles, but for gifts and some home candles, I'm going back to gel for now -- I'm even starting to get my supplies organized, little by little!
Hello everyone. I am just learning to make Paraffin and Soy candles so Gel Candles are a thing for the future but I would like to learn just to have the option to decorate my family gatherings at home. I would like to know how I can make my own embeds. I own a lot of silicone molds because I work with Epoxy Resin for jewelry and crafts. Are there instructions on how to make them anywhere on this forum. Thanks everyone!!!
lisa22422 posted a topic in Gel Candle MakingI made a few gel candles, one in a cylinder and a couple in wine glasses, and after a few days, I had these big flat bubbles around the sides about 1/4"-1/2" or so. Any idea why? It doesn't seem to happen in, say, a normal shaped candle jar, so I'm thinking it's the shape of the container but I can't see why it would even happen. Does gel shrink maybe? I used a heat gun on one and put one in the oven and they haven't come back, but I'm wondering now if I have to always do that. Thank you for any replies!
Hi, I'm new here and I'm so excited there are others out there to talk to about gel candles! I was just wondering what people think are the best embeds - particularly, I'm going to do some valentine's day candles and was looking around for some embeds and came across some confetti hearts but I don't know if the paper-like material would cause those annoying tiny bubbles to adhere to it the way something like wood does. I'm guessing wood does because there is air inside it though so I thought maybe the confetti would work. I tried to use that clear spray on wood to seal it and that didn't work. Any advice on that too? Thanks guys!
