Round - 3" x 9" - Palm Wax Teal & Blue

December 16, 2011 (last modified: December 30, 2011)

This candle was made using Starburst Palm Wax. It is an all-natural wax that looks like fiberglass when it hardens. The wax was dyed teal. After about 15 minutes of cooling I added blue dye flakes to the top. The heat gradually melted the blue dye, but most of it just stayed at the top. Two pours were required, but when using this wax for candles under 6" I can usually get away with only one pour. Palm wax has a higher melt point, so I use #5 square braid wick, which creates almost a perfect 3" melt pool.
