  • This way, the wick will remain in place while you are creating.
Fabriquez vos bougies
  • With the knife, scrape small chunks off the dye stick and add the shavings to the beaker of melted wax.
  • The wax thins out as it cools, and it will set faster when you use more of the dye.
  • Mix thoroughly with a stick to evenly distribute the colour. 
  • Add two drops of essential oil and mix again.
  • Wedge the glass at an angle, propping it up against the sandbag: the angle will give shape to the first colour layer of wax.

  • When the wax has set but is still flexible, prepare the second wax colour in the same way as before.
  • Change the angle of the glass and pour the next layer of wax.
  • Then, change the angle again and do the same with your third colour
