Making your own candles can be an exciting art project, but there are a few things you’ll need to know before you get started. If you’ve never used wax melters before, you may be in for a learning experience. Since these tools are an essential part of candle making, it’s important to learn how to use them.
If you’re aiming to make candles as a fun art project for yourself, you can probably get away with using a small wax melter in your home. But for those who plan on making a business out of making and selling candles, a large wax melter is going to be a crucial piece of equipment to master.
Even if the candles you’re making are small, a large wax melter is going to be the best tool for you to use for mass production.
Another important step to take when learning to make candles is learning how to incorporate different scents into your candles. This involves using just the right amount of scent and the right type of scent. For most candles, essential oils are the best method of adding an enticing scent to the mix. You can also add dried flowers or herbs, but be careful when adding them to your wax melter.
