If you have a few wax bits around that you don’t know what to do with, try recycling them into a beautiful chunk candle!
If you don’t, you can still make your own chunks. Just pour some colored wax onto cookie sheets about a half inch and cut into pieces once cooled.
First, thread your cotton wick through your mold and seal with putty or a plug. Then fill the mold until it’s almost full with chunks. I like lots of chunks anyway.
Heat some wax to it’s specified melting point and add color and scent if desired. I added vanilla scent for candles because that’s what I have left and a tiny bit of solid yellow dye.
Pour the melted wax slowly into the mold and over the chunks. This particular mold only required about a half a pound of wax since it was so full of chunks. It measures 3 and ¾ inches by 6.
Cool and save some wax for a second pour if you get a sink hole. Wait for it to cool again and release from the mold. The hardest part of making this chunk candle for me was the waiting.
