Loaf Mold
 
Step 1:  Prepare your loaf mold.  Place the loaf mold in front of you.  Place three wick pins in the mold.  Space them evenly across the mold and keep them centered.
 
Step 2:  Weigh out and melt 450 grams of the palm pillar wax to 210F using a double boiler.
 
Step 3:  Once the wax is melted, add 1 drop of the Nature Friendly Liquid Candle Dye  burgundy.  Stir.
 
Step 4:  Immediately add 45 grams of the Suede and Peony Fragrance Oil.  Once again, stir.  
 
Step 5:  When the wax reaches a temperature of 200F, pour the wax into the mold.  Allow the wax to set up.
 
Step 6:  Next, we will prepare the second layer.   Weigh out and melt 400 grams of the palm pillar wax to 210F.
 
Step 7:  Add the Suede and Peony Fragrance Oil.  Stir.
 
Step 8:  Pour this wax directly over the pink wax that has already set up in your mold.  Ensure you do not cover the top of the wick pin.  Allow the wax to set up.
 
Step 9:  Once the candle has completely set up, remove it from the mold.
 
Step 10:  Remove the wicks pins.  Thread wicks through the holes created with the pins.
 
Step 11:  Place a warning label on the bottom of the candle.

Step 12:  Now to create the flowers decorations for the top of the candle.  While the amount can vary based on the size and number of flowers piped we used 250 grams of Soy 464 wax.  It is best to have extra when piping.
 
Step 13:  Add 25 grams of Suede and Peony fragrance oil to the melted wax and mix.  Use a toothpick to add a small amount of the Nature Friendly Liquid Candle Dye until desired color is reached.  Allow the wax to cool down to around 90F.  Then use an hand mixer and mix until the wax is frosting like consistency.  
 
Step 14:  Place a coupler in a piping bag and the flower Russian Piping Tip.  Add the pink wax to the piping bag.  Twist the bag closed and allow to sit a little longer until the wax thickens.  Squeeze a small amount of the wax out past the end of the piping tip then, place it on parchment paper, squeeze, release and lift.  Continue to pipe the flowers until you have obtained enough to cover the surface of the loaf.  Allow to set up.
 
Step 15:  Using a cake spatula smear wax on the backside of each flower and place the flower on the candle.  This will act as a glue to hold the flowers in place on the top of the candle.  Continue until the desired number of flowers are added.
 
Step 16:  Now, you will need to make the strand of pearls.  Melt 250 grams of Joy Wax.  Add 25 grams of Suede and Peony Fragrance and stir.  We recommend melting more than the expected amount so you have extra to practice and the amount will vary depending on the size and quantity of pearls you make.  When the wax temperature drops to around 90F, blend with an hand mixer to reach a frosting like consistency.
 
Step 17:  Place the frosting into a piping bag that has a coupler and a round tip.  Test piping the wax on parchment paper until it is stiff enough to create small round balls.  Then, start piping directly onto the surface of the candle.
 
Step 18:  Trim the wicks to ¼ inch above the flowers.
 
We hope you enjoy your Suede and Peony Candle!
