Gel candle wax is re-known for making clear candles that can depict a scene, or for food candles. The use of a zinc (wire) cored wick is recommended to increase the burn temperature for a lovely bright candle. Bubbles in the wax reflect light through the clear medium to add a very pretty effect not available with other waxes. Gel candle wax can be coloured using colour tabs or liquid candle colours. Soap colours are not suitable for this medium. Not all fragrances are compatible with gel wax so please test prior to using for a larger candle. This gel is medium density.

  • Melt over low direct heat until completely liquid
  • Add additional ingredients to the gel wax at 95-105ºC
  • Pour gel at 85-95ºC
  • Loss of air bubbles is said to occur at 75-85ºC
  • Sets up firmly at 60-75ºC
  • If bubble removal is required an oven at 55-70ºC can be helpful.  Secure wick before doing so to avoid sinking

Temperatures may vary - please use as guidelines only

Use a little gel to adhere the tab of the zinc cored wick to the bottom of the glass and do not disturb unless absolutely necessary. Stickems may not hold up to the heat of the melted gel. This product gets extremely hot so do not touch it and do not make this style of candle with children. Not suitable for use in a microwave.
