Other Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need:
Stirring Spoon
Stove
Scale
Knife
9 x 13 cake pan
Wax paper
Pot (for double boiler)
Apothecary Jars
Cutting board
Sharp pencil


Step 1:  Melt 190 grams of beeswax using the double boiler method.  Set the temperature of your stove top between medium and low heat.  Stir this occasionally as it melts.

Step 2:   Once the beeswax is liquid, add 2 drops of Spectrum Red Candle Dye and stir.  Place your pouring pot back into the heat source for now.

Step 3:  Next, lay out your cake pan.  Measure out at least 9 inches in length.  Then, place your knife across the pan at the 9 inch mark.  Now, lay the wax paper over the cake pan and knife.  Gently, tuck the corners of the wax paper down.    

Step 4:  Weigh out 19 grams of Hot Pink Pomegranate Fragrance Oil.  Remove your beeswax from the heat source.  Add the fragrance oil and stir. 

Step 5:  Next, slowly pour the beeswax over the flat portion of the wax paper.  Allow this to fully set up at room temperature.

Step 6:  Once the beeswax has set up, gently remove it from the cake pan.  Starting in one corner, carefully peel away the wax paper.  Set the beeswax onto your cutting board.  Clean up any jagged edges using your knife. 

Step 7:  Now, weigh out and melt 1100 grams of soy wax.  Do this using the double boiler method.  Stir occasionally.

Step 8:  Using the tip of a pencil, trace the zebra pattern into the beeswax.  This will be various sized long and irregular lines (almost like tree branches).   Then, using your knife, cut these lines out. 

Step 9:  Carefully place the individual zebra lines against the inside wall of your candle jar.  It is best to start at the bottom of your jar and work in an angular direction.  Apply slight and even pressure until the lines stick.  Repeat this step until you are happy with your zebra design.  Then, create your design in your second jar. 

Step 10:  Next, secure your centered wicks to the bottom of your jars.  Set aside.  For this recipe, we used 2- cd10 wicks per jar.

Step 11:  When your soy wax is melted, remove it from the heat source.  Then, add 110 grams of fragrance oil.  Stir again.

Step 12:  When the soy wax reaches 115 degrees Fahrenheit, pour the wax into your candle jars.  Straighten your wicks, and allow the candles to fully set up. 

Your Zebra candles are now ready.  Simply trim your wick, light, and enjoy!
