Candleholder Thursday: DIY Cement Votive Cups

  • By minneapolischandlery

In the near future we will be making DIY tutorials about creating our favorite candles or candleholders. I was looking at some other tutorials for my own information and I found this project making lace imprinted cement votive holders. The post was written by Claire over at Fellow Fellow for Say Yes, both adorable blogs. If anyone tries this out, please let us know the results, we think there are a lot of possibilities!

Color Matching

  • By minneapolischandlery

Making a specific color in candle making takes a lot of time and patience. We make formulas of our regular colors based on the amount of wax we’re pouring to make sure our colors come out the same, but when we’re doing a small batch or special order we need to make a color from scratch. Wax always cools a different shade then when it is hot, and when it is at room temperature it always looks completely different. Jonny is working on a large special order for a wedding and he got this fabric swatch for the color of the candles. He tried a few mixtures but I think this one came out just perfect!
