Add section on Re-Using Candles
Re-using candles is a great way to save money and reduce waste. To store candles properly, make sure that they are in an airtight container or box and stored away from heat sources and moisture. Also, keep them away from children and only use wicks specifically designed for candle use. Once the candles have been lit, be sure to trim the wicks before relighting. Before re-lighting, thoroughly inspect each candle to check for any soot build up or potential damage before using it again. This will ensure that the candle burns safely and lasts longer. Additionally, if the wax becomes too low within your container, consider melting down extra wax to replenish it before re-lighting or simply discard the candle altogether.

1. Start by prepping your work area with a suitable surface for working on. Gather all the necessary tools and materials listed in your Dipped Candle Making Kit, including wax chunks, wick, wick adhesive, scissors for cutting the wick, a double boiler (or microwave) to melt the wax in, and a wooden skewer or stirring rod.
2. Connect one end of the wick to the metal tab attached to the bottom of each glass jar with the dot of adhesive that is included in your kit. Allow excess adhesive to dry completely before proceeding with dipping process.
3. To prepare the wax needed in this dip process, place it into a heatproof bowl within a double boiler on medium high heat until melted. Keep stirring as you go along to ensure even melting of all wax flakes and crumbs. Alternatively, you may opt to melt wax chunks in a microwave according to instruction on package labels.
4. Once melted completely, remove bowl from heat source and allow it to cool down slightly until it has reached pouring temperature (about 170° F).

Add a Troubleshooting Section
1. Candle won’t dip evenly: If your candle is not dipping evenly, try gently rotating the mold while dipping; this should cause an even layer of wax to build up on the outside of the candle.
2. Candle has air bubbles: If you see air bubbles surfacing after dipped the candle in wax, gently tap or shake the wick holder to encourage them to rise to the surface and pop.
3. Wax pooling at bottom of mold: To prevent excessive amounts of wax pooling at the bottom of a tall candle when it is removed from the pot, ensure you allow sufficient time for the temperature of your wax to decrease before separating it from the pot and adding more layers.
Expand on Useful Accessories
Using wax sealers is a great way to create creative designs on your dipped candles. To begin, arrange your design tools and what you would like on the candle onto a work space before placing the sealer or dipping into the melted wax. The design should be easy enough to fit onto a few inches so take care not to make it too big or complex. Take out the wax sealer from its container and dip it into the melted wax until it is coated entirely. Carefully place the sealer over the candle in whatever position you desire for your design and leave for about 10-15 seconds until firmly placed onto the surface of the candle. When removing, be careful as this should come off easily but may require some added pressure if needed.
For those looking to add more texture and creative layers, melt pots are an ideal accessory! Begin by melting down your desired wax – paraffin works best – in a pot that can handle direct heat such as a double boiler system which will help avoid any burns from direct contact with flames. After melting down your desired amount of wax, use with an eyedropper or syringe like applicator to coat over specific areas on the candle for better precision over where you would like each layer applied successfully (it’s always easier to apply less at first than trying to scrape off excess). Once set up, customize your canvas by pouring in different colors or textures simultaneously within a single area of melted wax within separate cups and always keeping one above room temperature while creating your mold! This method allows you to be able to create unique patterns in multiple colors while saving time during each stage of production.
Regardless of how many decorative accessories you would like incorporated; dipping a candle requires patience and creativity along with various accessories while also making sure all adequate safety precautions are taken leading up till completing process in which every person has their own original piece tailored specifically according their ideas/needs!
Include a section on Sourcing Supplies
When searching for the best supplies to use in a dipping candle making kit, it is important to consider quality and price. Start by researching the types of waxes available, such as paraffin, beeswax, or soy wax. Additionally, look for candle dyes, additives such as fragrances or oils and wick sizing materials. When deciding how much product to purchase for a project, take into account the approximate size of the dipped candles that one wants to produce. Look for suppliers that offer competitive pricing on bulk orders of wax and other supplies which allows one to save money when stocking up on materials. One can also find discount stores that carry large varieties of candle supplies at discounted prices. It is also wise to check online listings for craft supplies which often contain helpful product reviews from previous customers. Finally, inquire with local artists who dabble in making candles to learn if there are any trusted suppliers they are willing share with others in their community.
