Other Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need:
6 Cavity Pigs Embed Soap and Candle Mold (
Stirring Spoon
Pot (for double boiler)
Apothecary Jar
Hot Glue Gun with glue
Disposable bowl

Step 1:  Using the double boiler method, weigh and melt out 125 grams of Pillar of Bliss Wax.

Step 2:  Once the wax is melted, add 1 toothpick tip of red spectrum candle dye.  Next, add 10 grams of Hot Pink Lime Fragrance Oil.  Stir well to incorporate both the color and scent.

Step 3:  Now, get your pig embed mold.  Carefully fill each embed opening with the pink wax.  When all of the pigs have been filled, take the remaining wax and pour it into the disposable bowl.  Allow bowl to set up at room temp, cut into chunks.  Place pig embeds in freezer to allow them to set up faster.   

Step 4:  Using a hot glue gun, hot glue the bottom tabs of (2) CD wicks to the bottom of your jar.  Make sure your wicks are centered and secured.  

Step 5:  Next, using the double boiler method again, weigh out and melt approximately 550 grams of Joy wax.

Step 6:  Once the Joy is melted remove it from the heat source.  Add 3 drops of Brown Spectrum Candle Dye and one toothpick tip of Black Spectrum Candle Dye to the wax.  Stir well to incorporate. 

Step 7:  Next, add 44 grams of Hot Pink Lime Fragrance Oil.  Once again, stir.  Set aside.

Step 8:  Remove the pig mold from the freezer.  Remove chunks from the bowl and place them into the candle jar sporadically.  When you are finished, straighten your wicks. 

Step 9:  Now that the joy wax has cooled slightly, slowing pour this over the pink chunks in your jar.  Stop the pour where the jar starts to change shape.  Straighten your wicks again if necessary.  Allow this start setting up.

Step 10:  Now, gently remove the pigs from the embed.  Once your candle has started to set up, begin placing the pigs into the top portion of the candle.  You will want to push each pig slightly into the hardening wax to break the surface and secure the pig in place. Allow your candle to fully set up. 

Your Pigs in the Mud candle is now ready.  Simply trim your wick, light, and enjoy!
