If just using two colors (white and another) to save you using two wax melters to make this, you can pour your white wax first and then very quickly add color to the remaining wax and pour onto the second plate.

• Stainless steel measuring cup
• 2 Plates

Candle Making Safety
First Aid



Cover your work surface with newspaper and two plates with wax paper. After you have melted the waxes with the two colors of dye, use a measuring cup to scoop up some of one of the colors of melted wax. Slowly pour it in the center of the plate covered with wax paper. Continue to add wax until the plate is almost full, leaving about 2 inches in from the edge free of wax. You may find that the wax paper buckles a bit so push the buckled areas down gently with a Popsicle stick. Repeat for the other color of wax. Make a multicolored hand rolled candle step 1
Allow your wax to cool slightly so it is warm but not too hot to touch. It needs to be pliable to be able to work with it. Pull the wax paper with the partially hardened wax on it off the plates onto your work surface. Separate the wax from the wax paper and lay it back down on the wax paper. Do not lay the wax on the newspaper because you will most likely get newpaper print on it and it may stick to the newspaper. Make a multicolored hand rolled candle step 2
Next, cut out a square area with a knife. Pull away the remnants from outside of the square. Put the remnants aside so you can use them later. Cut the large square of wax into a few more squares of various sizes. Repeat for the other color. Make a multicolored hand rolled candle step 3
Stack the squares on top of each other in an uneven pile. Make a multicolored hand rolled candle step 4
Tear off a second piece of wax paper and lay it on top of the squares of wax. Roll out the wax with a rolling pin until it is approximately 1/4" thick , exerting light to medium pressure on the wax. Make a multicolored hand rolled candle step 5
This is what the wax will look like after you have rolled it out with the rolling pin. Before you are able to roll it up into a candle you need to trim it to slightly even out the edges (see the next photo). Make a multicolored hand rolled candle step 6
Lay a piece of wick across the bottom of the square of wax leaving one end of the piece of wick extending past one end of the candle. (You can leave a bit of wick sticking out the other end as well, just remember to trim Cheap iPad 3 Cases it off during the last step). Next, use your fingers to roll the wax up tightly around the wick. Once the wax is wrapped tightly around the wick, continue to roll the wax up until the candle is complete.

Trim the wick to 1/4" from the top, and if you have a bit sticking out of the bottom (as seen in the picture above), make sure to trim it so it's even with the base of the candle. If the base of your candle isn't quite even, you can lightly press down on it to make it flat since the wax will still be soft. Allow the candle to cool and harden completely before lighting.
