While paraffin wax is large, there are many more options now wax, beeswax soy wax for palm oil gel. I saw a number of gel wax candles in stores, and I was drawn to the transparency of the candle in the final result. This transparency allows really amazing decorative effects by using embedded, such as mussels and pressed flowers glitter objects.

gel candles of different other ways of making candles, no. no possibility that the gel wax can sustain itself can use the immersion method, and can use the gel wax into the molds. You must pour into a bowl. It was also a joy that I hand shops frequently where the latter can use a number of interesting glass jars, bowls and vases. I even found an old tank that was perfectly what I believe. I wanted suspended with flowers from my garden in the gel to create gel candles. That would be fun, I knew it!

So I arranged my provisions, which were as follows. My glass wax, gel, my eyelashes, a little glue and tape, and some essential oil for fragrance. I chose to add lavender and chamomile wax. Earlier this week I have some of my flowers and pressed between the pages of some books and I wash the glass, let it dry completely and I was ready to go.

Blockades, who had bought the pegs or discs medals at one end. It has on the bottom of my glass container with glue. then I recorded pencils wicks.

Thus, the flowers will be exposed in creating the wax on the end of a beautiful candle.

Then put on the wax, wicks I cut about an inch long, and my sails were completed. Works with any type of wax is wonderful, and of course there is nothing like homemade decorations, candles, especially in a warm and cozy home. My first experience with making gel candles was a success, and I recommend working with someone to solidify there that took the candle hobby, or career, hand and craftsmanship.
