Procedure Test + Soal+jawaban Making Candles


Making coloured and scented candles is really quick and simple. What's more, you'll save so much money. If making candles is easy, why do you ever buy one from a shop? What you need in making candles are wax, moulds, wick, dye discs, essential oils, and a double boiler. All these materials are available from craft shops. Or if you do not want to buy them, you can improvise with an old saucepan, Pyrex jug, or even a sturdy can, in a pot of water. After providing the materials, follow this procedure or instruction in making candles!

First of all, melt the wax. All wax has a flash point, so to prevent it from bursting into flames; you must melt it in a double boiler, with water at the bottom of the pan.

Then, prepare the mould with the wick. Thread the wick through the mould and make sure that you leave a good few centimeters sticking out of the hole in the bottom.

After that, add the scent. If you want a scented candle, add a few drops of essential oil to the melted wax. You can use any essential oil you like, as long as it doesn't contain water.

Next step, pour the wax into the mould. Try and tip the wax into the mould quickly, all in one go, to minimize spillage and air bubbles.

Then, release the bubbles and top it up. Releasing the air bubbles will eventually make the candle sink, so you will need to top it up with more melted wax.

Finally, remove it from the mould. After four or five hours, the candle can be taken out of its mould.

Your candle is now ready for display. Remember, you must always leave it for a day before lighting it.
