Firstly, candle making allows you to create personalized candles that perfectly suit your style and taste. With a wide range of materials, you can play with different colours and shapes – and create candles that truly stand out.

Give your candles personality

Do you want to add a touch of personality to your candles? Then candle pens are your new best friend! With these magical tools, you can decorate your candles in countless creative ways and create unique masterpieces for your home decor.

First and foremost, candle pens are incredibly easy to use. They work just like regular markers, but with the added benefit of being specially designed for drawing and decorating on candles. You don't need to be a professional artist to get fantastic results – it's all about letting your imagination run wild and experimenting with different patterns and designs.

One of the most fun things about using candle pens is that you can customize your candles for any occasion. Having a party? Draw fun patterns or write guests' names on the candles for a personal touch. Want a romantic evening at home? Create heart-shaped designs or write love messages on your candles to set the perfect mood.

So let your creativity run wild with candle pens and create beautiful and unique candles that will impress everyone around you.

 

Cast the finest candles in containers

Do you dream of creating beautiful and unique candles? Then casting candles in containers like candle glasses and oyster shells is the perfect way to do it!

To get started, first choose your containers. Candle glasses are perfect for casting candles as they come in various shapes and sizes, allowing you to find the perfect match for your space. Oyster shells are a more unique option that adds a rustic and natural feel to your candles.

The next step is to melt your wax or wax. You can either use a double boiler to melt it gently or the microwave in short intervals. Once your wax is melted, it's time to add colour and scent of your choice to create the perfect candle to your taste.

Now comes the fun part – carefully pour your melted wax into your chosen containers. Be careful not to overfill them, as the wax will expand slightly as it solidifies. You can also add decorative elements like dried flowers, crystals, or glitter to customize your candles for any occasion or theme.

Let your candles solidify for a few hours until they are completely firm. When they're ready, it's time to light them up to spread coziness and calm in your home.

 

Create homely cosiness

It's never a wrong time for candle making, so if you feel like it, you can enjoy the activity all year round. However, there are certain seasons when the interest in homemade candles is higher. Autumn and winter are the most popular seasons. When the weather gets cold and the days get shorter, we gravitate towards cosy indoor activities. Homemade candles give us a sense of warmth and comfort – and create plenty of homely cosiness. So, while candle making can be practised year-round, there are certain seasons when the activity is more widespread.

 

Decorate your home with freestanding candles in various shapes

Do you want to add an extra sparkle to your decor? Then freestanding candles are the perfect solution! You can cast your own using silicone molds – a technique that is easy to learn and yields the most beautiful soy candles for your home decor. 

With our wide range of silicone molds, there are almost no limits to what you can create – we have everything, from the traditional cylinder shape to more geometric shapes. Try, for example, our silicone mold for the popular bubble candles. Whatever block candles or figurine candles you choose to make, the molds are easy to use and clean, and you can use them again and again.

Once your candles are finished, you can place them around your home as beautiful decorative elements. Use them as centrepieces on the dining table, cosy accent lights on shelves, or even as hostess gifts for your friends and family.

 

Why should I cast candles in soy wax?

When casting your own candles, the choice of wax is an important decision. Soy wax is one of the more popular options – and there are several reasons for that. Soy wax is a more modern alternative to paraffin – it's 100% vegan and perfect for those who want to cast natural candles.

You can choose between two different types of soy wax. One is for container candles – and the other is for freestanding candles like block candles and figurine candles. Whichever type you choose, this kind of wax produces less soot. Soy wax produces up to 80-90% less soot than traditional paraffin candles – and as an added bonus, it also flakes, making it easy to measure the exact amount when casting.
