[ENG] 까메오 캔들 만들기 / HOW TO MAKE A CAMEO CANDLE / 蠟燭 / ろうそく(DIY CANDLE MAKING)


Hello, everyone. Today we’re gonna make cameo candle. You can learn to color the wax like an antique using alcohol ink SOY WAX using for pillar 160g paraffin wax (melting point 127degrees)
10g for cameo wax decoration soy wax using for container 5g to fix the cameo to the pillar candle, or you can use glue PC mold, mold buddy secure Cameo silicone mold dye(black dye is essential), fragrance oil 11g gold color alcohol ink & cotton (you can use sponge) Then, We’re gonna make pillar candle first. Melt the soy wax using for pillar While that’s melting down, the first thing we’re going to do is fix the wick to the mold with a mold buddy secure. Our wax is melted down. Make a color I’m gonna be making burgundy using red, purple, brown dye. It’s temperature right now is around 195degrees(90’C) Add fragrance oil. (7~10% of the wax amount) We’re gonna be pouring the wax into the mold around 170degrees(75’C) Pour it out Set the top of the wick bar. Make sure it’s perfectly center The pillar wax shrinks a lot while it’s cooling down. so if you don’t want the hole. Fill the hole with wax. Then, our candle is cooled. Take it out of the mold. It took about 3 hours to be cooled down. Clear the wick at the bottom of the candle Now, it’s time to make cameo wax decoration. Melt the paraffin wax Make black color In the case of the Molds with delicate patterns,
heating the mold before pouring wax is very useful Pour the wax into the mold We are gonna bend it. so take it out of the mold when it is hard yet still warm if you have infrared thermometer, take it out around 100degrees. but knowing the timing by your hand is useful. If the wax is pressed too well, do not demold. Take it out when it’s pressed, you can feel hard like rubber? but still warm. Of course, we need practice^^ It took about 15minutes Bend the wax on the mold If you use melting point high paraffin wax, it is hard to bend Then we are gonna be coloring the wax using gold alcohol ink mix well before using it You can paint the wax using acrylic paint, In my case, alcohol ink is more easy to paint than acrylic paint. This is cotton tool. you can use any cotton or sponge. To make the cameo look antique, I’m not going to color it carefully. While the ink drying, melt the soy wax using for container We are gonna use the wax to stick the cameo to the pillar candle When it cools like a cream. spread the wax on the back of the cameo. Put together and wait till stick well. So our candle is complete. you can apply this way to any mold you want. Thanks for watching^^ if you like, plz let me add 1 subscriber and like. See ya~
