How To Make A Luxury Candle Using A Luxe Marble Vessel
Makers, it's time to elevate and create your very own luxury collection! Mel is here to walk you through the candle making process using marble vessels and other makesy essentials!
The marble vessels are super nice and definitely have a certain quality about them that makes them look very elegant. Each one is unique as a result of the different shades that exist within the stone and they each come with a matching fitted lid.
We are going to be making a candle inside the raw material vessel today but they also have fitted glass inserts that you can make your candle in for refills as well!
Some of the materials you are going to need are pearl mica, some pink quartz mini chips, luxury bergamot & ambergris fragrance (for an elevated fragrance note), and the whisper wick (in order to have a nice light wick variation in our candle).
First, you are going to start by setting up the wick inside the vessel using wick clips and wick stickers. Watch Mel in the video do this if you have any questions about whether or not you are doing this step correctly! Next, you are going to measure the fragrance. In this recipe, we are using a 10% fragrance load for our 8oz vessel, so you would need to measure out 0.8 oz of the fragrance into the pouring pitcher. For the wax, we are going to be using hemp soy wax, which is sustainable and eco-friendly. Using the wax melter, melt the wax normally but be mindful of the temperature since we are using a natural material vessel today. This means that you should pour the wax in at a little lower than usually recommended temperature in order to protect the vessel. For the hemp soy wax we used in the video, the perfect temperature after melting should be around 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the wax is melted, pour in the fragrance and stir using the bamboo mixing spoon for 2 minutes. Then, pour the candle into the vessel and avoid pouring over the wick.
Let the candle sit for 24 hours before adding any decorations. After 24 hours, trim the wick (about 0.2 inches above the wax) and decorate using a heat gun and slightly melting the surface so you can add the mica and crystals. Make sure you then leave your candle to cure for at least 72 hours before you light it.
Enjoy this amazingly elegant new candle. Also, once the candle is all used up, the marble vessel can be repurposed to hold makeup brushes, or as a small jar!
