Snowball Candles

by Chandler 1. October 2009 20:20

Materials:

Step 1
Place wick in ball mold. Melt wax and add peppermint scent to wax as desired. Pour your candle. Allow candle to cool and then re-fill depression in the center of the candle. Cool completely and remove finished candle from mold.

Step 2
Add peppermint scent and 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of glitter to 1 to 2 cups (250-500 ml) of melted paraffin wax and stir. Place melted paraffin in a deep bowl. Cool wax until a thin skin forms over the surface of the wax. Then, using an electric mixer or egg beater, whip melted wax until it becomes light and fluffy.

Step 3
Now, you must work QUICKLY. The whipped wax will cool quickly and become hard and unmanageable. Apply the whipped wax to the outside of the ball
candle with a fork. Cover the whole candle in this manner, holding the candle by the wick so that you can work on the entire candle at once.

Be careful! The wax can still be quite hot at the beginning of this process. If wax becomes too cool to work with, reheat and whip again.

 Think Big Candle and Soap Makers

In addition to Procter and Gamble starting out making candles before growing into one of the largest consumer product companies in the world the below companies can trace their origins to candles and/or soaps

Colgate - The hygienic products company got its start in 1806, but it didn't make its first toothpaste until 1873. Founder William Colgate initially manufactured soap, candles, and starch. It is now a $15.329 billion company.

Wrigley - William Wrigley started selling soap and starch and gave away his gum as an incentive to his customers. The customers ended up only wanting the gum. It is now a $5.389 billion company.

In addition the below companies have had direct interest in candles and soaps.

Eberhard Anheuser was a soap and candle maker but also happened to be the father-in-law of Adolphus Busch, the founder of the Anheuser-Busch Company.
