What you need for a candle
- A thick glass - A wick - Small self-adhesive metallic subjects - Stearin - A candle perfume - Paraffin - A piece of cardboard with a notch
What to do
To dress the container, stick the small subjects according to your tastes. In a saucepan, in a bain-marie, melt the paraffin into grass to which you add stearin (10 to 30% of the total mass of paraffin ) and add thirty drops of special candle perfume. Attach the wick to the center of the glass with a little paraffin. Keep the wick straight with the piece of cardboard. When the paraffin-stearin mixture has melted, pour it into the glass, leaving 1 cm of rim at the top. Wait a few hours for the candle to dry. It's up to you to make your candles by choosing your favorite perfumes or original colors. Find out more!
