Now it is time to pour the wax. Place a funnel in the opening to keep the edges of the mold open while you are pouring the wax. You may want to get someone to hold the funnel and the candle mold stand firmly in place so all you have to do is concentrate on pouring the wax. Scoop up some wax using the metal measuring cup and pour it slowly into the funnel. The more wax you pour through the funnel, the more wax that will harden and clog up your funnel. Keep this in mind or you might end up with a mess and possibly burn yourself. Remove the funnel from the mold and if necessary, unclog the end by pushing out the hardened wax with a thin pointed object so you can continue filling your mold. Before you push the hardened wax out of your funnel, make sure you have emptied out any wax that is still liquid back into your melting pot so you won't burn yourself when you are unclogging the tube at the bottom of the funnel. When you have completely filled the mold with wax, remove the funnel and set it aside. If the mold doesn't stay closed properly on it's own, clamp the open side of the mold wth a large clip to ensure a neat, flat bottom for your candle. Let your candle harden. Use a candle mold step 3

Remove the tape slowly and carefully from the mold so you don't disturb the wick.
