• As the wax melts, that means it’s time to ready your mold. If the wax has completely melted, put a thermometer into the container. If it reaches 175 degrees Fahrenheit, that means the wax is ready to pour.
• Add the desired color chip.
• Then add the chosen scent. Put only half a teaspoon.
• Stir it very well
• After stirring, your scented candle wax is now ready for molding.
• Slowly lift the container from the pan of water, and then dry the container.

Tip: Choose the shape that you think best resembles or fit the character of your receiver). Put the wax back to the water to keep it hot until the candle is done as desired.
