Sand Art Gel wax candle

Hello guys. Hope you are all doing great. It's been a long time I had posted something. Here, I come with simple yet elegant sand art gel wax candle. Making gel wax candle with colorful sand base gives a graceful look to the candle when it's lit.

Let's check out the procedure of making it. Here are the supplies needed.
  • Color sand
  • Gel wax
  • Candle wick and thread
  • Glass tumbler

Bend the tumbler a little and pour sand of different colors one after the other along walls of the glass tumbler as shown in below picture. Choose colors alternatively so it doesn't match colors adjacent and beneath it. This gives wavy look. Final look after filling in above said pattern with different colors sand is as shown in picture at bottom right corner.

You can also let your creativity play its role while playing with sand to form different designs.

Now take a thin stick and slide it down along the wall of tumbler to leave a pattern as below. (This is optional process)

It's time to insert candle wick and thread. Place the candle wick and thread at center of tumbler and insert it little in to the sand.

Melt gel wax using double boiling technique so that it wouldn't burn. Once the gel wax is melted properly, pour it in glass tumbler carefully.

Held the candle wick firmly with the help of stick like structure until gel wax cools down. Once the wax cools down, leaving a half inch cut extra part of candle wick as shown below.

Yipee, now your Gel Wax candle is ready!!

Thank you for dropping by. Have a nice day :)
