Other Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need:
16 oz. Apothecary Jar
Pot (for double boiler)
Scale
Mixing Spoon
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Sticks

Step 1:  Prepare your candle jar.  Adhere two CD-12 candle wicks to your apothecary jar using a hot glue gun.
 
Step 2:  Next, use a double boiler to melt 4.5 ounces of the Joy Wax.  Once melted, add a small amount of the yellow color block. You will need less than a gram of the color block.  Stir to incorporate the colorant.  
 
Step 3:  Now, to the yellow candle wax, add .45 ounces of the Black Licorice Fragrance Oil.  Once again, stir to blend the fragrance. Pour the wax slowly into the candle jar. Allow the wax to fully setup before moving on.
 
Step 4:  At this time, we will prepare the first white layer of candle wax.  Weigh out and melt 1 oz of the Joy wax. Once melted, add a small amount of the white color block.  Again, you will use less than 1 gram of the block. Stir.
 
Step 5:  Add 0.1 ounces of the Black Licorice Fragrance Oil.  Once again, stir. Finally, pour the white layer into the candle jar directly on top of the yellow layer.  Allow the white candle wax to setup.
 
Step 6:  Prepare the black candle wax.  Melt 4.5 ounces of the Joy Wax.  Once you have melted the candle wax in your double boiler, add the black color block.  You will need to add about 2 grams of the color block. Mix to blend the colorant completely.
 
Step 7:  To the black candle wax, add 0.45 ounces of the Black Licorice Fragrance oil and stir.  Lastly, pour the black candle wax directly on top of the white layer. Allow this layer to setup before moving on.
 
Step 8:  Prepare the second white layer.  Weigh out 1 oz of the Joy Wax and melt it in your double boiler.  Once you have melted the candle wax, add a small amount of the white color block.  Once again, you will use less than 1 gram of the block. Stir.
 
Step 9:  Now, add the Black Licorice Fragrance Oil.  You will need to add 0.1 ounces of the candle scent.  Once again, stir to mix the fragrance oil with the candle wax.  Then, pour the white layer into the candle jar directly on top of the black candle wax.  Allow the white candle wax to setup.

Step 10:  Prepare the final layer.  Melt 4.5 ounces of the Joy Candle Wax.  Then, add some of the mauve color block.  You will need less than 1 gram. Stir to blend the colorant with the candle wax.

Step 11:  Add the Black Licorice Fragrance Oil.  You will need to add 0.45 ounces of the Natures Garden fragrance oil.  Then, stir until your scent is fully blended with the candle wax. Finally, pour the mauve candle wax directly on top of the white candle wax.
 
Step 12:  Once the final layer has completely setup, trim the candle wicks to ¼”.  Place a warning label on the bottom of your jar. Then, allow your candle to cure before using.
