The oldest method of making candles and a perfect way to make your own dinner candles. Once you master of dipping there are several other projects you can do! This elementary candle is very easy and will teach you the basics.

You will need:- A dipping can tall enough for the candles you want to make. A container that holds at least the same depth of cold water, and a length of wick. NB you are dipping two candles at once so you need a long enough length to take this into account.

Drape the wick over your fingers a shown below. Prepare a dipping can with wax heated to 170F (76c) Dip the wick into the wax to within 3 cm of your hand. You will have to keep the wicks from brushing against each other or they will stick together. You should practice doing this as smoothly as you can - the smoother the hand action the fewer the lumps! Then dip the wicks into your container of cold water.

Repeat dipping the wicks into the wax and then into the water. You will find the candle becomes thicker and thicker.
It is not essential to dip the wax into water in between dips - especially if you are dipping in very cold conditions, but it
speeds up the setting of each layer.
Always dip to the top of the candle - it will naturally form a rounded top.

When the candle  has reached a thickness you like (remember if you want to make a thick candle use a thicker wick!) you can dip the candle into a dipping can of strongly coloured wax of your choice to finish it off. You can add micro hardener to this last coloured layer to make the candle drip resistant.of the candle should now look like!

You have now finished the candle!!!  You may wish to cut off the excess wax at its base with a sharp knife or crafted knife.
