Make Homemade Candle Molds For Soy Wax

By Debra Hardy  2010-08-24

How To Make Homemade Candle Molds

Making your own soy candle molds can be easier then you think, and there are numerous ways to create your own candle molds. If you don’t mind funny feet, and want a larger candle, you could cut the top off of a soda bottle. Just remember to look for smooth sides on your containers, if you plan to remove the candles to burn as free standing pillar candles. If the sides are not smooth, the candles won’t slide out once they are cured.  When beginning to look around for ideas on soy candle containers, the primary consideration is whether the container is smooth sided, heat-resistant, and leak proof.

Empty frozen juice containers can work for smaller pillar candles, with the added benefit of the lid having already been removed. Soda pop cans can be used if you remove the top, just be careful not to cut yourself on sharp edges.

Sand Candle Molds

Remember when you were little, and making your own sand castles on the beach? You can use sand in the same manner, to make a candle ‘mold.’  You will want a container big enough, and strong enough to work in.  Buckets, even 5 gallon containers will work.  Moisten the sand, until it is moist enough to hold together when pressed. Push a candle into the sand. This works well with votive s, and other pillar type candles to make the molds.  Remove your candle, make sure all of the sides are solid, without air bubbles, or gaps.

It’s simple now, place your wick, heat up your wax, and colorings, and fragrance, then pour it into your sand container mold. Be sure to let your scented soy candles cure for a minimum of 24 hours before attempting to remove them from the sand molds. A sand mold will allow you more flexibility when it comes to making different shapes and sizes.

Container Molds for Soy Candles

Any tapered metal container with smooth sides may also be used as a candle container. Using a 14 ounce tuna can works for smaller sized candles, the sides are smooth, and the shape facilitates easy removal of the candle. I use a small nail, and hammer to put a hole into the center of the homemade mold (A ice pick will also work, just remember to be careful.) Push the wick through the hole, tie the wick string around a wooden dowel in a half knot. Leave about 1 inch of candle wick protruding from the base of the candle, and use Plumber’s Putty to seal the hole in the container bottom to finish your candle mold. Center the knot on the top of the container around a wooden dowel, or a chopstick, tightening the wick until it is straight and tight.  Your completed candle mold is now ready to be filled with a soy container wax.

I would suggest spraying the inside of the mold initially with candle mold release spray which you can find by going over to one of my favorite distributor’s of candle supplies. Click here to be redirected to the candle supply link at Candlewic.

One more tip to reduce costs, the plumber’s putty can be reused several times before it hardens, and is no longer usable.
