Prepare a Double Boiler to Melt the Candle WaxPrepare a Double Boiler to Melt the Candle Wax

One last preparation that you are going to want to do is create a double boiler for the melting candle wax. This double boiler will protect your candle wax from heating too quickly and potentially scorching. In order to create a double boiler, you will need both a pouring pot and a regular stove-top pot that you use only for craft making. You fill the stove-top pot with a few inches of water. Once you fill the pot with water, you will need to place it on the burner. You are going to need to heat the water. When you are ready to melt the wax for this recipe, you will put the candle wax in the pouring pot.  The pouring pot will then be placed in the pot containing the hot water

Now that your double boiler is ready to use, you can prepare and melt the candle wax for this recipe. So, you will need to weigh out 120 grams of the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax. Then, you will want to add the candle wax to the pouring pot. Now, melt the wax. You will want to occasionally stir the wax, but you can use the double boiler device to more safely heat your wax. After this pillar candle wax has been melted completely, you are ready to move on to the next step in the process.

Adding the Caramel Candle ColorantAdding the Caramel Candle Colorant

Once all of your candle wax has completely melted, you are ready to add the caramel candle colorant. Now, you are going to be adding just a small amount of a caramel color block to your candle wax. You are going to want to make sure that the candle wax has the color of an actual caramel candy, but you should not need to use more than a gram of the candle colorant. As you can see in the picture, you will not need much of the block.  After adding a portion of the caramel color block, you will want to stir to incorporate the color fully into the melted wax.

Testing the Candle Wax ColorTesting the Candle Wax Color

Instead of moving on without knowing whether you have the right color, you are going to be testing the candle wax color to determine whether you need to add more. Of course, you will need to mix everything together when you add more of the candle colorant. Since the color of your wax will lighten as it sets up, it can be useful to let a small drop set up on a paper plate before you move on. This will allow you to see the true color that you will end up with if you stick with that amount of colorant. Of course, you can continue to add more of the color block until you reach the hue that you would like. You can continue to use tiny amounts to test your colorant until you get a nice caramel color.
