Square - Glowing Blue Cross

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

This candle was made using a glow powder additive from readysetglo.com. I poured the 140° F paraffin wax into a glass dish. Using a salt shaker I evenly spread the glow powder. It sinks very quickly. When the wax was cool enough I cut it into 1" chunks. I did the same thing for some non-glowing chunks of various colors. I carefully arranged the chunks upside-down in the mold, and poured some un-dyed 140° F paraffin into the mold at about 155° F.
The candle cooled in only a few hours. Being a chunk candle it didn't stand perfectly straight, so I used a cheese grater to flatten the bottom.
