bug zapper candle - I made this by mistake


Recommended Posts

I am trying to get into more complex designs and the candle I made didn't work out at all for the most part.

 

I made multiple mistakes during the process of making my candle.

 

Decided I would share anyways. My candle didn't work out properly for the most part. I know I messed up making the candle. It's not the worlds worse candle though I figure myself.

 

The top turned out fine, but it was the sides that I screw up on a bit.

I did this one to as well. I know why they are failing to as well.

 

It's strange I wanted to know how to make my candle wax a bit harder. I'm basically using a brick candle wax currently that I can't break easily and I found out the blue dye block I'm using makes it stickier.

 

I had more success on this candle, but this candle failed as well. It's due mostly to how sticky the blue dye block is melted in with the candle wax. The blue dye in the candle wax sticks to the mold more and I have to make sure I'm not using too much as well as applying my mold release spray at the right time to as well.

 

This second time it should work out just fine.
