A white candle with two or three colours seen through
its transparent whiteness.
Melt wax as given in the basic procedure in
a single or two or three desired colours separately.
Add crayons or candle colours or dyes. Take three
trays and grease it with coconut or any clear vegetable oil and pour
each of the three melted colour wax into each tray approximately in 1cm thickness.
Keep aside for setting. When the poured wax
is nearly set, cut into desired shapes using a knife or moulds (star shaped,
heart shaped etc). Now your chunks are ready.
Grease a desired container (thick round
or square mould) and fill
three fourth of the container with the chunks made earlier. Press them as close
as possible against the sides so that the colours will be seen through at their
brightest. Now take a wick
slightly longer than the container height and prime it. ( Dip the wick three to
four times in boiling wax at equal intervals to get a coating of wax over it.
This makes the wick straight) Now place the wick in the middle of the chunks
inside the container. Melt plain wax and pour it into the container until the
surface of the mould is level. Keep aside for
Instead of making chunks, you
can use coloured candle ends left over after use. Pull out the pieces of wick
inside before using them as chunks.
