Stainless Steel Spoon
(6) Disposable Bowls
Step 1: Place 160 grams of Pillar of Bliss wax into your melting container. Using the double boiler method as described in one of our classes, melt wax on low on the stove until the wax is completed melted. Get your seven empty stainless tart molds ready.
Step 2: Weigh out 8 grams of Deb's Flower Shoppe Fragrance Oil. Once the wax is completely melted, add the fragrance oil to the wax. Stir.
Step 3: While you are waiting for the wax to melt, take all 4 of your toothpicks, and cut them in half. You want one of the edges of the toothpick to have a point, while the other should be flat.
Step 4: Since for this project, the flower tarts are pastel, you do not need a full drop of dye. Carefully, dip the flat end of the toothpick barely into each of the Spectrum Candle Dyes. One toothpick in each color- red, blue, green, burgundy, purple, orange. There will be one toothpick with nothing on it, this will be the white tart.
Step 5: Once the wax is melted and scented, carefully weigh out 22 grams of wax into each paper bowl. Using the dyed end of the toothpick, swirl the color into each bowl of wax. Then, mix thoroughly. Do not throw your toothpicks away yet.
Step 6: Bend the side of the paper bowls to make a pour spout, and quickly pour each bowl of wax into its own individual stainless tart mold. You will use the remaining wax that is in your pouring pot to make the white tart.
Step 7: Once all of the stainless tarts are full, place one daisy perforated lid on top of each stainless mold. You want to center the middle hole as best you can to the tart.
Step 8: Taking the correct colored toothpick, and the left over toothpick (with no color) for the white; place the flat end of the toothpick in the center hole of the perforated lid. As the wax starts to cool, keep straightening the toothpicks so they stand erect.
Step 9: When all of the tarts have completely hardened and cooled, carefully remove the perforated lid. You may also remove the toothpicks. Next, remove the tarts from the molds.
Step 10: Take one of your CD-5 wicks, and carefully thread the tarts through the wick, placing one on top of the other. When you are finished, curl the top of the wick by placing it around a pencil.
Step 11: To use: you can either take off the individual tarts and melt them in your wax melter, or if you choose, you may trim the wick and light them as a pillar candle.
Note: For this recipe, we used a 5% fragrance
load. If you are going to use these for
tarts only, you can go as high as 8% fragrance load.
