& Equipment You'll Need:
1- 16 oz. Glass Apothecary Jar
(5) Ziplock bags for mixing colored wax
Hot Glue Gun
Step 1: Using a hot glue gun, attach (2) CD-12 wicks to the
bottom of your apothecary jar. You want
the wicks to be equally spaced apart.
Step 2: Get your (5) Ziplock bags ready. In each bag, place 90 grams of Pillar of Bliss.
Step 3: Next, to each of the Ziplock bags, add 7 grams of NG CanCan Fragrance Oil using a pipette.
Step 4: It is time to add the Spectrum Color Dye to your candle wax bags:
Bag 1- 2 drops Burgundy and 1 drop Red
Bag 2- 1 drop Burgundy
Bag 3- 1 drop Red
Bag 4- 1 drop Burgundy, 1 drop Black, and 2 drops Red
Bag 5- Leave this bag uncolored for now.
Step 5: Now, it is time to mix away. Simply seal the zipper of the bag closed, and shake away until everything is evenly dispersed. Once the bag that has 1 drop Burgundy, 1 drop Black, and 2 drops Red is mixed, remove 3 grams of it, and place it in the uncolored bag. Mix this bag now as well.
Step 6: Using a disposable spoon, take out some of the wax from
one of the bags. Then, place the wax in
one of the
jar's bottom edges. With the spoon, press the wax down to compact and shape it. Repeat this manner, rotating all 5 colors,
until the bottom portion of your jar is filled. Remember to keep your wicks
straight and spaced correctly.
Step 7: As you make the multicolored layers in the candle jar, use your disposable spoon to emulate the pattern of camouflage. The size and shape of the different wax colors is completely up to you. But remember to keep packing the wax in. Please Note: As you continue to add wax to your candle jar, keep checking that your wicks are straight and spaced correctly.
Step 8: Once your candle jar is filled, straighten your wicks one last time. Using a pencil, take the excess wick and wrap it around the pencil to make a curl. Repeat for both wicks.
Step 9: Your Camouflage Candle is now ready. So, trim your wick and burn your candle!
