Candles

 

We’ve been getting crafty in Proops again and making some candles using our candle moulds.  We get asked occasionally the best way to use the moulds to stop the wax leaking and the candle sticking, so I plan to put together a little video of the process (and to show you that experienced candle makers can get it wrong sometimes too, I may even post a little bloopers video of how not to do it).

I’m sure I’ve told you all before that I like to give something personal to my nearest and dearest for special occasions and I had a thought of using our push lid solid aluminium storage tins  to make some scented tealight candles.  These could be personalised with labels for birthdays, Christmas, Halloween or any other occasion you can think of and at £3.50 for a pack of three they won’t break the bank either. We will also be listing these in larger quantities.  I plan on making some seasonal scented candles in them for my friends and family, personalised with some lovely individual labels for Christmas.  Of course, you could customise these cute little pots for other gifts too – they are the perfect size for earrings or cufflinks.  Have you used any of our products in a way which we haven’t thought of? We’d love to hear your ideas.

All our candle moulds are designed and made right here at our factory and our designer, Richard, has been working on some new candle mould designs for us, so keep checking the New Arrivals section or the Candle Mould section on the website for the latest designs.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.

Bath Bomb Basics. Make Your Own Lush Bath Bombs.

We had an idea for the use of our candle moulds.

We love candles, but we wanted to see what our candle moulds could do. Turns out, they make awesome lush bath bombs! If you cover the wick hole with a little bit of blue-tack, you can create an awesome personally inspired bath bomb. We found an amazing walk through on how to make some too, thanks to Lauren Jackson, from DIY Ready. So get making, and get relaxing.

Our candle moulding range offers lots of different shapes and sizes, including soap trays!
