Important moments of training.
- Selection of sheets of traveler. They must be solely clean so that the candle can burn beautifully and do not crack. Sheet thickness is also important – if it is subtle, such a candle will quickly burn.
- Preparation of filaments of wicks. It must be exceptionally cotton threads, the other composition will simply not support the burning. For example, perfectly copble with this goal of Muline. Better if it is one thick thread consisting of several thin. To make such a thread yourself, you need to bend thin thread half, one tip fasten, stretch, turn to the desired density state. Not letting the thread, you need to bend it again in half. This cord is used as fate. The length of such a lace is equal to the length of the candle with the leaving 2 cm for the allowance.
- Color flame. Surprisingly, but it can be changed. It will depend on what solution is impregnated with the candle. So that the candle burns bright red, for example, a strontium chloride is used. But the copper vigorous will make the flame blue, magnesium sulfate – white.
In the work on the manufacture of candles there are many nuances. For example, finished fitlets should be alolved with melted wax. Heat it, using a water bath. Pieces are placed in some tank, a jug is suitable with a spout. It goes into a large saucepan filled with water. When slices melt at all, they lower the finished threads in the jug, and there they will stay 30 seconds. It is not possible to lower them, you can only a couple of centimeters of the tips. And they need to smalle them so that the thread is melting, but did not burn.
When the threads are already safely impregnated, they are placed on the clean board, they give dry. Long drying goes to favor the threads, because if they still have a little moisture, the candle can be a spoke that is unsafe.
Obviously, the preparation of materials and their acquisition is a process requiring immersion in the topic. But some special marks sell whole sets for forming candles that are supplied with detailed instructions.
That is, the creative process is already more predictable, is painted and designed for beginners including.
