in double boiler. 3.Stir wax until it reaches a temperature of 160 F (Test temperature with a thermometer that is placed in center of melted wax). 4.Add small amounts of your color until you have reached desired shade. The shade will be a bit lighter when it cools. You can test your candles for color by allowing a spoonful to dry on a plate. 5.If you want scented candles add scent. Make sure wax stays melted. Check to make sure temperature of wax is staying at 160F. 6.Next, cut wick to desired length of candles plus a little extra to hold as you make candles. Example: If you want two 6 inch candles, cut about 15 inches of wick. You will be making two at same time. Double wickover your finger. 7.Dip wick in wax for a few seconds then lift out. Allow wax to cool between dippings. At first, this may be a little tricky as wick floats on top of wax until it becomes more weighted. Be careful to make sure wet candles are kept seperate from each other. 8.Continue on with repeated dipping and cooling. Repeat this until candles have reached thickness that you desire. 9.Gradually increase temperature until it reaches around 180 F and then dip pair into wax for one final time. Now gently lift them out and let them cool completely. Once candles have cooled, use a sharp knife to trim bottom to create a straight bottom for your candles. 10. Cut wick. Your candles are complete and ready for use.
