Step 1: Prepare your molds. You will need 2 of the 3 x 6.5 inch round pillar molds. Thread a wick through the hole in the bottom of each of the molds. Then, you can place a plug in the bottom of the mold. Alternatively, you can use hot glue to completely seal the hole.
Step 2: Weigh out and melt 950 grams of the Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax. Next, add 3 grams of a red color block. Melt the wax using a double boiler to 195F. Stir occasionally as the wax is melting.
Step 3: Once melted, allow the temperature to drop to 185F. Add 95 grams of the Bite Me Fragrance Oil. Stir.
Step 4: Pour the wax once the temperature reaches 175F. Fill the mold ¾ of the way. Allow the wax to set up at room temperature. Poke relief holes.
Step 5: Melt the remaining wax to 165F. Then, fill the remainder of the mold. Allow the candle to set up. Remove the candle from the mold.
Step 6: Next, use a double boiler to melt 1424 grams of the Pillar of Bliss. Add 1 ½ of the black color blocks, cutting them into small pieces first. Stir occasionally as the wax is melting. Once the wax reaches 195F, remove it from the heat and stir to ensure that the color block is fully dispersed.
Step 7: Allow the wax temperature to decrease to 185F. Then, add 142 grams of the Bite Me Fragrance Oil. Stir.
Step 8: Place the pan close by. Hold the long portion of the wick and dip the candle into the black wax ensuring the entire red candle is covered in black. Repeat this process, dipping the candle 3-4 times. Place the candle on the pan. Trim your wick to about ¼”
Step 9: Using a disposable pipette, drip the black wax around the perimeter of the candle until you are happy with the drip lines.
Once cured, your candle is ready to use! Enjoy!
