My first comment will be a positive one. Without any instructions, I managed to make three beautiful candles using the mold. And I’m currently working on a fourth candle. They are really easy to make. The only issue is the wick. The first candle I allowed to harden and I removed it from the mold after which I tried to take a hot skewer to make a hole down the center of the candle through which I would push the wick. Lots of luck with that. In the end the candle cracked a little. Since then I put the skewer in after the candle is partially set. Set enough so that the skewer stands upright but not so that it is difficult to push the skewer into the wax. After the candle is fully hardened (about ten hours) I remove the candle from the mold by peeling the mold down around the candle. Then I remove the skewer. I heat the skewer up and reinsert it to make the hole just a little larger. Then I take wicking which I have doused in liquid wax and then pulled straight, and push this through the hole. For the fourth candle I finally marked on the bottom of the mold where the center is so that I can make certain I put the skewer into the center of the top of the mold. I’m hoping this will put my wick a little more centered. As for the looks of the candle, from the first one they turned out quite nice. The flowers look lovely. There was no cracking or missed spots or anything of that type. Now for the issues. The candles are small. As in, just under 3″ tall. If that’s what you want, you are fine. I was expecting them to be more like 6″ tall. Naturally, as they are short, they are also rather skinny. Not a problem if that’s what you want. The bigger problem is that the molds are like a soft foam. And they came all squished up. As such, the mold isn’t circular. For the sake of this explanation, top is bottom and bottom is top. The top of the mold is the bottom of the candle. The candle is more oval at the bottom. Of course the top is round as it has a cover on it. I finally solved some of this issue by using a round container that is graduated. I put that over the top of the mold upside down until it holds the mold in a circle. I leave this on until the mold is fairly well set. You may also notice from the picture that the candle appears to taper in in the center. Mine look the same. I’m pleased to note that the candle won’t burn down nearly as fast as I thought it would. It’s been lit for twenty minutes now and has barely burned down at all. I’m happy with the molds even if they are smaller than I expected. I have a lot of old wax that I can use to make many candles of this type plus some others as well. I’ll have quite a variety of candles by the time I’m done. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 5 of 5 people found the following review helpful Works well., October 13, 2013 By David L.

This review is from: Flower Candle Mold Silicone Soap Mold Candle Mould DIY Candle Making Mold I make candles with this. I have two. They always come out really nice. To add a wick; I use a skinny metal rod and heat it up with either a flame or boiling water and it slides right through the wax, then I stick the wick through! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
