Other Ingredients & Equipment
9 x 13 cake pan
Pot (for double boiler)
Step 1: Using the double
boiler method weigh out and melt 200 grams of beeswax. Set the temperature of your stove top between medium and low
heat. Stir this occasionally.
2: Once the beeswax is melted, add 3 drops of Spectrum
Purple Candle Dye and stir. Place your pouring
pot back into the heat source.
3: Lay out your cake pan.
Measure out at least 10 inches in length. Then, place your knife across the pan at the
10 inch mark. Next, lay the wax paper
over the cake pan and knife. Gently,
tuck the corners down.
4: Now, remove your beeswax from the heat source. Weigh out 20 grams of Aphrodisiac Fragrance
Oil, and add this to the beeswax. Stir.
5: Next, slowly pour the beeswax over the wax paper. Allow this to fully set up naturally.
6: Once the beeswax has hardened, gently remove it from the
cake pan. Carefully, peel away the wax
paper. Set the beeswax onto your cutting
7: Now, weigh out 1100 grams of soy wax. Place this into the double boiler and allow
it to melt. Monitor the wax as it melts
and stir occasionally.
8: Using your sharp pencil, trace the leopard pattern into
the beeswax. This will be various sized
irregular circles. Hint:
You will want to go
on the larger side for this pattern. Then, using your knife
cut these patterns out.
9: Carefully place the individual leopard circles against
the inside wall of your candle jar.
Apply slight and even pressure until they stick. Repeat this step until you are happy with
your design. Then, create your pattern in your second jar.
10: Next, secure your centered wicks to the bottom of your
jars. We used 2- CD10 wicks per candle.
Step 11: When your soy wax is melted, remove it from the heat source.
Then, place 1 drop of Spectrum Purple Candle Dye into the melted
wax. Stir. Next, add 110 grams of fragrance Oil. Stir again.
12: Now wait until the soy wax is 115 degrees
Fahrenheit. Then, pour the wax
into your candle jar. Straighten your
wicks, and allow the
candles to fully set up.
Your Leopard candles are now ready.
Simply trim your wick, light, and enjoy!
