Making a Candle Mold

Sure, there are lots of cool commercial candle molds out there, but how much cooler would it be to get creative and make a mold yourself from a favourite shape or item? It's easier than you think!


Here's what you're going to need:

  1. 100% silicone. This can be found in the caulking aisle of your local hardware store. You will need a caulking gun as well.

  2. Blue Dawn dish soap. It's gotta be Dawn and it's gotta be blue.

  3. A plastic container that will forever be a silicone-mixing container

  4. Water

  5. Rubber gloves

  6. Something to make the mold from (this is where you get to be creative!)

  7. A disposable container slightly larger than the object you are casting


Some extra tips that I didn't mention in the video:

  • The amount of water is not really important. You just want enough to help spread the dish soap.

  • Change out your water completely between mixes and get rid of any old silicone so it doesn't get stuck in your next mold.

  • Really push the silicone into your container firmly to get rid of air bubbles.
