Clamshell Wax Tart KitClamshell Wax Tart Kit

The Clamshell Wax Tart Kit is a perfect idea for beginner homemade candle makers. This kit provides you with the ingredients and guides you with instructions to successfully create your own room scents. Not only is does this kit make it easier to create wax melts, but the directions provided in the kit are short and easy to follow. Plus, after this project, you will be better prepared to make other creations in the future, such as making more wax melts or moving on to making candles. This kit provides you with two scents, Apple Cinnamon Fragrance Oil and Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil, and two liquid candle dyes, red and yellow. Also, the kit provides you with enough ingredients to create four clamshells of wax tarts. Since each clamshell container contains six wax melts, you will have twenty individual wax melts for you to use!

Apple Cinnamon Fragrance Oil (1 ounce)
Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil (1 ounce)
Red Liquid Candle Dye (1 vial)
Yellow Liquid Candle Dye (1 vial)
Clamshell Containers (4)
Disposable Pipettes (2)
Step-by-step Instructions (1)

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Other Ingredients and Equipment

Paper Bowls (2)
Pouring Pot (1)
Thermometer (1)
Large Pot (1)
Stainless Steel Spoons (2)
Stove Top (1)
Scale (1)

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Clean and Sanitize

Make sure that you are completely ready to begin this project, so you will not run into any issues during your crafting process. So, you will want to get all your equipment ready on your workspace and make sure everything is clean as well. First, retrieve and clean out your equipment. Next, sanitize your workspace, including the surface you’re working on and the stove top. Then, your area should be prepared enough to start this melt tart making craft.

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Double Boiler

Before you begin melting, you will want to make sure that you are prepared to safely heat your wax. The best way to avoid overheating ingredients is a double boiler, so we are going to go over how to create one. Now, take your large pot and add a couple inches or so of water, you will be able to adjust this later. Next, simply place your pouring pot into a larger pot of water. Place this on the stove top and in the next step you will use this device for heating.

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Melting the Pillar of Bliss Wax

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Melting the Pillar of Bliss WaxFirstly, you are going to be melting your Pillar of Bliss Wax. So, take your provided wax and add one pound into your melting container. You can melt this amount, but you should have been provided with one pound of Pillar of Bliss Wax. Replace the melting container into the large pot of water. Next, turn on your stove top and get the water in your large pot to boil. Occasionally, you will stir the wax with a stainless steel spoon as it melts.

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Dividing the Wax

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Dividing the WaxSecond, you will divide your melted wax in half. Since we are going to be making half one scent and half of another scent, you will need to divide the wax equally at this point. The easiest way to do this is to place your paper bowl on the scale and weigh out a half pound of your melted wax. However, you can eye the amount if you are very careful to leave enough melted wax to create both scents. Also, make sure to replace your pouring pot containing the other melted wax on the stove to keep it melted.

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Coloring and Scenting the Apple Cinnamon Melts

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Coloring and Scenting the Apple Cinnamon MeltsNext, we are going to add the dye and fragrance oil to the wax. So, retrieve the paper bowl with your half a pound of wax. First, you will add the red liquid candle dye to your melted wax. Get one of your pipettes, add a drop of your dye, and melt well with a stainless steel spoon. While you can add a second drop if you want your wax tarts to be a deeper red than the wax tarts pictured at the end, you should not add more than a few drops. All candle dye has a scent and you do not want to add so much that it overpowers the fragrance. Next, add your entire ounce of the Apple Cinnamon Fragrance Oil and mix well.

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Pouring the Red Wax into the Clamshells

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Pouring the Red Wax into the ClamshellsNow, you are going to pour your wax into the clamshells. So, get to of your provided clamshells and set them on your workspace. Then, bend the side of your paper bowl to create a spout. Next, pour your melted wax into your clamshells. Make sure that you don’t move these filled clamshells until they have completely hardened and set up.

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Weighing the Melted Wax

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Weighing the Melted WaxNext, you are going to create the other scented wax melts. So, weigh another half of a pound from your melted wax into a new paper bowl. There should be just enough to complete this second batch, but sometimes a few grams extra are added to the bags. This is just to make sure that you will have plenty of wax to complete your project. But, this means that weighing to make sure your recipe is more exact would be a good idea.

Then, you are going to be adding the dye and fragrance oil. So, retrieve your second paper bowl of melted wax. First, add one drop of the yellow liquid candle dye to your wax and mix well with a stainless steel spoon. The wax tarts pictured below have a second drop of dye included, but you can add either one or two drops. Next, you will be adding your entire ounce of Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil to your melted wax. Mix your ingredients well and move on to the next step.

Next, pour the wax into your last two clamshell containers. You will want to make sure these wax melts are not moved until they are entirely set up.

Clamshell Wax Tart Kit Ready to Use

Finally, your wax melts are finished. After the wax melts fully set up, the four wax melts will be ready for you to use! Simply, chose the one you’d like to use and pop out one of the cubes from the clamshell container. Then, you will simply place it into the dish of a wax warmer and wait for the scent.
