Tea Candles

By admin  

Beautiful candles make unique gifts for any kind of occasion. These days we see so many kinds of candles that donÂ’t even look like candles at all! Candles can even be made at home with just a few basic ingredients and a lot of imagination. Candle making can be very exciting and fun. It can also be taken up as a profession. Candles can be of different patterns: pillar candles, decorative candles, jar candles, votive candles, tea light candles, taper candles, container candles, luminescent candles, travel candles, floating candles, and novelty candles in interesting shapes like animals, people, food, flowers and plants, celestial bodies and so on. Exclusivity is the main feature and this can be achieved by being as creative as possible.

Candle making is a relatively easy art though it requires practice. Under proper guidance, even a child can make beautiful decorative candles. All it needs is to melt the wax, add color dyes or fragrance oils or any other additives. The melted wax should be poured into containers or moulds that contain a wick. It generally takes a night for the wax to cool down. Most of the supplies can be obtained very easily from the stores.

Candle making needs certain raw materials, the main ones being waxes, wicks, dyes and pigments, additives, fragrances, molds, wax melters, taper equipment, containers etc. These are each of many different kinds, for instance, waxes include soy wax, palm wax or bees wax. Similarly, containers can be apothecary jars, beehive jars, crock jars, mason/canning/jelly jars, tea light cups, barrel jars, cracker jars, patio jars, tins etc. The dyes are also of many kinds: dye flakes, color chips, glow color chips, pigment chips, color blocks, pigment dyes, liquid candle dyes, powdered candle dyes, and others. The gels can be CLP low density, CMP Medium density or CHP High density. Molds may be made of metal or plastic. They are generally in the form of embed trays. There are also several kinds of wicks: citronella wicks, ECO wicks, flat braid, coreless wicks, tabbed and pre-tabbed wicks, square braid, spooled wicks, zinc core and tea light wicks. Decorative accessories include glass embeds, wax embeds, natural embeds, colored sand, glitter, and so on.
