Other Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need:
Ziploc Bags sandwich size (4)
16oz. Apothecary Jar
Metal Spoons (4)
Hot Glue Gun with glue sticks
Step 1: Prepare the
Pink Wax: Using your scale measure out 120 grams of Pillar of
Bliss Wax. Place all of this into a
Ziploc bag. Next, add 12 grams of
fragrance oil. Finally, to this bag add
1 drop Spectrum Red Candle Dye. Seal the
Ziploc bag shut and shake until the color is fully disbursed. Then, set aside.
Step 2: Prepare the White Wax: This time, measure out 160 grams of Pillar of Bliss Wax. Place the wax into another Ziploc bag. Now, add 16 grams of fragrance oil. Seal the Ziploc bag shut and shake. Then, set aside.
Step 3: Prepare the Light Pink Wax: Weigh out another 120 grams of Pillar of Bliss Wax. Place the wax into the third Ziploc. Then, add the 12 grams of fragrance oil. Now, to this bag add 1 toothpick tip of Spectrum Red Candle Dye. Seal the Ziploc bag shut and shake until the color is fully disbursed. Then, set aside.
Step 4: Prepare the Red Wax: Again, weigh out 120 grams of Pillar of Bliss Wax and place it in the final Ziploc bag. Next, add 12 grams of fragrance oil. Finally, to this bag add 3 drops Spectrum Red Candle Dye. Seal the Ziploc bag shut and shake until the color is fully disbursed. Then, set aside.
Step 5: Using a hot glue gun adhere (2) 51-32-18z zinc wicks to the bottom of your apothecary jar equally spaced.
Step 6: Now, lay your apothecary jar on its side; you may want to stop the jar from rolling by using your pencil. Now, using one of your spoons, open the red wax bag and carefully place some of the red wax in the center of the side of the jar. Carefully take the spoon and shape your wax granules into a heart. Once you loosely have the shape, pat the granules down. Then, using a toothpick, rework your heart. Keep repeating these steps until you are happy with the shape and size of your heart. Make sure you press down the granules one last time before proceeding to the next step.
Step 7: Using a Q-tip, clean any granules that are out of place away. Next, carefully set your jar right side up. Open the Pink bag of wax and using a spoon gently place some of the wax in the bottom of the jar. Work in between your wicks, and push the wax along the bottom edge. Keep filling in more pink wax until the bottom portion of your jar is filled.
Step 8: Now open your white wax bag. Using your spoon, fill in the middle portion of the jar. Start by backing the red heart with white wax. Then, fill in the remaining white wax until it is all gone. Work in between the wicks, pressing down the granules. Once all of the white wax is in place, straighten you wicks.
Step 9: Now, open the light pink wax bag and fill the remainder of the open space in your jar. Press the granules down firmly, and straighten your wicks once again.
Step 10: Place the remainder of the red wax that is still in the bag, into your pouring pot. Then, using the double boiler method as described in one of our classes, melt the wax on low on the stove until the wax is completely melted. Get the love hearts embed mold ready.
Step 11: Next, carefully pour the wax into each of the love heart openings. Be careful not to pour the wax too hot or it may ruin your mold. Allow the embeds to set up completely. Then, poop them out and set them aside.
Step 12: Now, in your pouring pot, weigh out and place 125 grams of Joy wax. Using the double boiler method, melt the wax on low on the stove until the wax is completely melted. Then, remove from heat.
Step 13: Grab your mixing bowl and place the joy wax in it. Weigh out 12 grams of fragrance oil and place this into the wax. Stir. Allow the wax to start to set up, then using your wire whisk, begin to whip 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 jar. Continue this until the jar is filled, and has whipped wax peaking out of the candle jar.
Step 14: Place several of the love heart wax tarts onto the whipped wax.
Step 15: Curl the wicks with a pencil.
We hope you enjoy your Valentines Day Candle!
