• How is born carved candle
We will tell you and show you how to create each of the carved candles "Ural candle factory." You will see that there are no tricks here, anyone can try to make your own candle at the master class, or even to learn all the tricks and get certified master candle.
For the production of the carved candle is such a need basis. It can be in the form of finite-6 or 8-pointed star. The grounds we cast from a mixture of paraffin and stearin. Such a formulation provides a smooth and bright candle burning.
Bind the foundation directly behind the wick to a special hook.
colored candles obtained by dipping the multiple bases in hot liquid paraffin. To maintain the temperature, we use special equipment, invented and developed by us.
Stir the wax with bamboo sticks to dissolve all lumps, remove the crust formed on the surface and distribute the dye evenly.
We start to dip. One dive - one layer. The more layers - the wider the strip of cut flowers.
After each immersion necessarily omit future candle in cold water to fix the new layer of paraffin.
If a drawing is necessary, so that the colors are not mixed, each color is completed layer of white wax - it will not be visible in the cut. We need to get a light green color, so yellow blank falls immediately in green wax.
As you can see, the candle is already noticeable "stouter".
So what color we have.
poppy harvesting in the right colors a few more times. The top layer of our candle will be red, so you need to how to "block" the rest of the color white, which is what we are doing.
The candles come in different sizes, and each of them need a certain number of layers, so you need to accurately count the number of times to dip the workpiece in each color. For some time before dipping completion erupt here are grooves that spark does not turn into a smooth cylinder. As you can see, even several layers of white still did not cover green.
Finally, the desired white color is achieved.
A few more dives in paraffin - and that's what happened.
Here begins the second and most crucial part - cutting candles. While the wax is soft, it can be cut and bend as you like. The master has about 20 minutes before it completely hardens. During this time, the candle should be prepared.
To start with the bottom cut off the excess. It is a pity, but these beautiful "stalactites" should be thrown out - they are not suitable for recycling.
And here is our master Catherine.
It is also a pity to throw away scraps, so - voila! - because they do it is such a small candle.
The first incision is made. All elements are cut from the bottom up. From the side it seems that cut petal desired thickness is easy, but once you try himself, it turns out that the knife behaves as he wants. It takes a little practice to "fill the hand".
And now the first row of curls ready. Getting to the next row. Cut and wrap.
Done! Again curls. Here and there was a light green color.
Next - a little more complicated. It happens that cut the petals fall off or do not want to get up to the place, but any mistake remedied, and the result will still get the beauty.
There is a set of key elements that the master can be combined as you like. There are also "traditional" form of suppositories in which the entire sequence of operations determined in advance. In this case, the master decides how it will look like a candle.
So we got to the top of the candle.
But that's not all! Special knife in the shape of a loop cut thick strips into the recesses, such as grooves, which we did at the preparatory stage.
They turn into cute "snail" and spirals.
Remove the plug from the crossbar, a special circular knife cut the tip to the base, so that the candle looked neat and better burning.
remains attached to the fuse label. Master happy.
After that, an additional candle is covered with lacquer, which helps to better secure all the elements and gives the candle shine. Our candle went from shop windows for 10 minutes, and not having time to plunge into the varnish.
Burning time of such candles - about 20 hours.
As you can see, learning a candle can cause everyone is wanted.
