Recommended Posts

Hi all!

After much searching, I FINALLY found a taper mold on ebay. It makes 8 tapers, very nice. I got it yesterday.

Anyway, I cleaned it out, and decided to try it. I poured one candle to test the wicks I had on hand, and to see finished product, etc.

I used 100% beeswax, as I always do.

How the HECK do I get it OUT?!?!?!? PLEASE help me....I don't know what to do...I was SO excited to get this...I feel so dumb!:rolleyes2

Any help is appreciated :o

Sigh.

Yes, it is metal. I did put it in the freezer but it is still stuck tight. I don't even own a hair dryer, so I am not sure HOW to heat this...maybe HOT water?

I am so mad at myself...I just had visions of these gorgeous long tapers, in my yummy scented BW....:rolleyes2

Unfortunately, that dipping vat from Peaks costs $12 to ship to me.

And they ship UPS, who I hate. terrible service and insane brokerage fees.

Hmmm. maybe there is one on ebay....

Great idea!

I think a coffee can would be too short...need something tall.
