Trial Run – The 1st Batch of my homemade hot cinnamon candles.

Here (photoed left) is the result of my trial run of making homemade hot cinnamon candles for Christmas/Yule presents. It needs some finishing touches: a final wax top up, trimming of the wick and then some possible design/patterns using glass marker pens.

Learning from the 1st batch:

  • I will need three times the amount of paraffin wax, red dye and hot cinnamon scent I thought I would need in order to complete all of the 24 jars.
  • They have come out looking great and smell amazing.
  • I probably wont need to use the glass marker pens to add designs or pattens on to the jars, as they look fantastic as they are.

I’ll be sure to share some photos when I have the finished products.

Blog soon,

24 Jars

1 of the 24 Jars.

24 jars (like the one left) have arrived today for my next creative project.

I’m going to be making red jar candles, scented with hot cinnamon for Yule/Christmas presents.

I’m going to use glass marker pens to draw patterns (or possibly designs), so that as the candle burns down it looks like stained glass with the sun behind it.

This month I will receive the supplies needed: 24 jars, 1KG of paraffin candle wax, red dye, hot cinnamon fragrance oil, wicks and glass marker pens.

Next month I will buy the tools needed: a wooden spoon, a melting pot and a food thermometer. Then I will begin production, starting with a one-candle trial.

I can’t wait to get started on this creative project. I’ve been watching many candle making videos on YouTube. It looks like such fun. I have a feeling that it will either be a huge success or a complete disaster.

I will keep you updated on my progress on this blog.

Blog soon,

Antony
