Candle Foam effect


     Foam effect

Melt the paraffin wax till 3/4 th then take a churner and start churning while boiling if the churner stops moving then the foam is ready ... foam looks like snow..

Molds
 
 
 
Melt the wax in double boil container while the wax is melting add your desired colours colours ..
wax colours are available in the craft stores.
crayons are cheap and best for usage add a piece of  selected crayon in melting wax ..if u want more colour add another small piece of crayon..
Now apply oil to the inner side of molds and place the wick in position support it with the stick at the top so that wick will be in center..
if there are any gaps after inserting wick thn close it with all purpose flour dough..so that it holds the wax ..we can add perfume to the candles before we pour wax in molds ..
 
 

paint the dias decorate and pour the wax when it is semi solid place the wick in position...
