1. Make your chunks -Take a non-stick jelly roll pan and melt 2 lbs. of votive wax in a pouring pot.

2. Add your blue spectrum color dye to the votive wax. Add 1/4 tsp. vybar103 for extra scent throw. Then add 1/4 cup of Clean Crisp Air fragrance oil. Give it a good stir and pour the entire contents into the jelly roll pan. Allow this to cool, but not set up completely.

3. When the wax is still soft enough to cut it, take a knife and cut the entire pan into small chunks. Now, allow the pan to set up completely, and remove all of the chunks and store in a large plastic lidded container.

4. Make your Votives -Line your votive molds up on your benches and get ready to pour like mad!  Melt 4 lbs. of votive wax, add 1 tsp vybar103 to the mixture, DO NOT ADD COLOR, and add 1/2 cup fragrance oil.  Give it a good stir.  You want to pour at about 160-165. 

5.  Go down the line and fill all of your votive cups about 3/4 of the way full.  There is no need for you to save any of this wax for a repour!  Now, grab a hand full of wicks and go down the line and straighten them and stick them in the votive molds CENTERED.  The wicks should stick to the small amount of wax in the molds that has begun to set up...if not, give it a minute and try putting your wicks in again.

6.  Chunking your Votives- When you see a fine film of wax that is setting up on the top of your votives, grab a hand-full of chunks and go down the line and drop chunks into the votives until the votive mold is filled.  The neat thing is that the chunks release the air pockets that are normally formed when using votive wax....creating a situation where you do not have to do a repour!  Make sure you can see some of the chunks coming out of the wax...this gives them the COOLEST look!  Go back through and make sure that your wicks are centered.  Allow them to cool at room temperature and then pop them out of their molds...BINGO you're done!
