Step 1 Make candles with silicone molds:
The first step would be to heat the Paraffin 65 º next to the stearin in a proportion of 70/30. When it is practically fused, we will turn off the fire and let the residual heat melt what remains of paraffin and stearin for melting. When we have all melted we will pass it to a large glass and add the candle coloring in this vivid red case and the scent of Christmas fir for candles. We will stir well until the mixture dissolves since the dye is powdered.
Step 2 make candles with silicone molds:
The silicone mold must carry the prescriptive rubbers so that it is well closed and does not drip through the slit necessary for the unmolding, or the one necessary for the wick or wick. The handmade silicone molds have a few slits to bowls better, so we need to put the gums in the mold. We will pass the wick through the hole destined for it. Passing the wick we can do it this way or once we have unmolding pass a guide rod for Wicks and put the wick.
We will let only the tip of the wick or wick come out of the base.

Remember to use an iron that we will not use to iron the clothes.
