How to make marble wax melts
Want to add the wow factor to your wax melts? Well why not make marble ones?
Marble is a massive trend and is a great way to add depth to your designs, your customers wont be able to get enough of it!
What you need:
Step 1 - Measure
Firstly using your bowl and scales, measure out 80 grams of EcoSoya Melt Wax.
We like to use this wax as it exhibits a great scent throw, vibrant colours, and excellent mould release.
It's also vegan, cruelty-free and eco-friendly, what's not to love?
Step 2 - Melt
Next up, fill your pan halfway with boiling water.
Melt your wax on a medium to low heat and stir until melted.
Once your wax has melted, you can take it off the heat.
If you prefer to melt your max in the microwave, you can do so by placing your wax in a container on a medium heat for 5 minutes.
If your wax is not completely melted, stir and put it back in the microwave until melted.
Step 3 - Fragrance
Transfer your wax into a pouring jug and let your wax cool to 65 degrees before adding your chosen fragrance oil.
We choose to add the fragrance first so it combines with the wax before adding the dye.
By adding the dye at a lower temperature, it will not fully mix and create the marble effect.
Step 4 - Dye
Add your black liquid candle dye to your wax, swirling slowly remembering not to stir the dye so it doesn't fully mix with the wax.
This is the tricky bit but practice makes perfect!
Step 5 - Pour
Slowly pour your wax mixture into your chosen clam shell.
Leave your clam shells to set overnight, for cure time we would recommend around 2 weeks.
It might take a couple of goes to get the dye mixing right but once you've mastered that, there's nothing stopping you! Why not try using different colours? Opting for colours that complement each other will help your clam shells to stand out!
We’d love to see your work!
