Elegant, professional candles are easily achieved with these molds. The tip of each mold has a pre-formed hole which can be wicked with our Wicking Needle resulting in a perfectly centered wick each time. While the candle is cooling in the mold, you must keep the mold straight and level. The inside of a paper towel roll works well or rubber banding it to a brick works even better. If you leave surplus wick, when you pull the finished candle from the mold you will draw the wick into the mold from the bottom which prepares the mold for your next pour. Typically 2/0 wick yields the best results.
