the wax: Using the double boiler method discussed in one of our
candle making classes, weigh
out and melt 405 grams of gel wax. You
want to set the temperature
of your stovetop between medium and low heat.
Step 2: Keep an eye on the
gel wax as it melts. You will notice
that the consistency of the gel wax will become like a thick syrup. Do not let the temperature of the gel wax reach 230
degrees or higher. Use your thermometer
to monitor this.
3: Once the gel wax is
in a liquid like state, add 1 drop of Spectrum Yellow Candle Dye. Stir.
Next, stick the tip of a toothpick into the Spectrum Brown Candle Dye,
then dip the toothpick into the wax.
4: Place your pouring pot back into the heat source.
5: Preparing the Beer Mug: Using a hot glue gun, center and stick your wick to the
bottom of the beer mug.
the Gel Wax: Weigh out 41 grams of
Beer Fragrance Oil. Remove your gel wax
from the heat source and add the fragrance.
Stir cautiously. Although some bubbles
are okay, if you stir too much, or too quickly your gel wax will have too many
bubbles. If this occurs, set it back
into the heat source and wait the bubbles out.
Pour: Gently pour the gel
wax into the beer mug. You will want to
do this slowly.
8: Straighten your wick
and set the candle mug aside to harden.
the Foam Topping: Weigh out and melt
160 grams of Soy Wax- 415, using the double broiler method.
10: Once the soy wax is in a liquid state, remove it from
the heat source and add 16 grams beer fragrance. Stir.
11: Pour your scented wax into a mixing bowl and let it set
up slightly. Next, grab your hand held
mixer and begin to mix it. You will notice as air is
incorporated that the wax will become fluffy.
Once the wax has cooled, thickened, and been whipped, begin scooping it
into the top of the candle mug. Continue this until the mug is filled, and has
whipped foam wax peaking out of the
candle mug. Allow this to set up.
Once your candle is completely set up, it is now ready to burn. Simply trim your candle, light, and
