How To Make A Crystal Candle
Adding crystals is one of the easiest, most creative ways to make your candles stand out! Adding crystals not only adds positive energy to your candles but also makes them one of a kind and allows you to showcase your creativity!
In this video, Charlotte shows you exactly how to make your very own crystal candle using our assortment of unique crystals, as well as the candle maker's best friend, the heat gun!
Here at makesy, we have an assortment of different kinds of crystals to choose from. They can also be used in a large array of maker products like hand sanitizer sprays, room sprays, etc. The heat gun is the only other tool you need in this project! It can be used in a variety of candle-making activities like fixing any imperfections in the wax or covering up sink holes or sweating.
To begin making the candle, you are going to turn on your heat gun and wave it over the surface of the candle for 1-2 minutes until the surface of the wax has liquefied. Once you get a small amount of the wax on top liquefied (about 0.2 inches), you can turn off the heat and start adding your crystals in any design you'd like. Feel free to get creative here!
It really isn't a long process and takes very few supplies but makes your candles look totally different! Check out the video to see how Charlotte's turned out. You can personalize your candles with the crystals by color, which ones you think are the prettiest, have the best positive effects, or arrange them in different cute patterns.
NOTE: Do not use the heat gun over the wick because it can catch on fire from the heat. Also, do not use a hair dryer in place of a heat gun. It will splash the wax everywhere.
After the crystals are in, you can use your heat gun one more time to touch up the wax or if you need to move any around that have already hardened in the wax. Once you're good with how it has turned out, wait about 15-20 minutes for it to cool and your candle is ready to use!
