How to Make Grubby Candles
Grubby candles have a rustic look, as though they are missing a layer of wax in sections. The finish of the grubby candle actually effects the surface of the candle. These candles are very easy to make. Here is how to make grubby candles.
Any size aluminum mold can be used for this candle. The most popular we find is the 3 x 4½. You begin this project by chilling the mold for about 10-15 minutes. You then take the 4045H wax and add about 10% stearic acid to the formulation. Melt your wax to around 150-155 degrees Fahrenheit and pour into the chilled mold as any standard pillar. Top off where needed and remove when the candle has completely hardened. Due to the peeling of the wax the candle may have to be placed in the freezer for removal.
