Ask your question
  • Try places where they sell candles in general eg Dusk, Myer, Spiritual/Healing stores etc. If not I am sure they will guide you to the right direction . Making candles is a nice challenge , just like making soaps I guess .

  • I am going to try the silicone moulds.

  • Thanks for asking this question; following the answers.

  • I use whatever I have at hand, jar, glasses etc..

  • Artison’s retreat have candle making packs that they can post to you which include everything you need like wax and containers and wicks

  • Internet or craft store, but you can use empty milk cartons, orange juice bottes etc and other things.

  • EBay

  • I use silicon shaped cake moulds and set them in there, Glass jars that a designed to sit tea light candles in, Xmas decoration baubles like you get at spotlight (Have 2 halves that separate), tea cups you no longer use basically be creative.

  • Old money boxes were good too

  • As kids we made them
    Into poppers and milk cartons

  • I also use pretty small jars, sometimes with wire or twine wrapped around the top. These look very cute and beachy, which is a favourite style of mine.

  • Yes as Anne Clements said, you can use silicone cooking trays, there are a huge variety of shapes and sizes. Thats what I use.

  • depends on what type you want to make . http://www.candlesupply.com.au is a place to start with. I know you can use silicon shaped cooking trays -heart shaped ,cupcake etc. You can also pour straight into various sized glass holders.
