The perfect lesson for candle-making beginners!

Learn the basic candle-making techniques as you make your own cube candle!




Handmade candles are popular as gifts for friends and family.
One of the fun things about candle-making is that you can make them in various shapes, like cylindrical round candles and long taper candles.

Out of all the different kinds of shapes, a cube is the easiest shape to make for beginners!
In this lesson, let's make a yellow cube candle together!

In this lesson, you will learn mainly the following 3 things:

◆How to heat wax in water and tips when doing so
◆How to coat the candle wick with wax and set it into the tab
◆How to dye your wax to make the color look translucent

In addition, you will also learn how to prevent cracks from forming, what to take note of when stirring the wax,
what to be careful of when cleaning up wax, how to position the candle wick for a well-balanced candle, and more.

With this lesson, learn the basic techniques you'll need for candle making from the very first step.



After you get the basics down, you'll be able to customize the design freely. Layer 2 different colors on top of each other to make a 2-colored candle, or have fun using different shapes of molds.

Once you've gotten used to things, you'll be able to make gradient candles, candy candles or other fun and cute candles!

Take this opportunity to learn the basic method of making a candle and make your own one-of-a-kind candle!
