Thank you for what you went interview and again, my name is Tiffany and welcome to my class 2. Materials Needed: so to help you get an idea of what you'd like to get to make your wax melts here, a few materials that I like to use to put everything together. You can use any soy wax you'd like, but personally, I love ICO. Soyo Q 2 30 You will need a pouring picture to melt and mix your waxed and fragrance oil in a pot or pan to place your pouring picture in for double boiling. And you can use your stove if you like, But it is best to use an electric hotplate or fifth burner, so there isn't a fire hazard with the soy wax. A thermometer is necessary to watch the temperature and know when to add fragrance. And for your Weps. I also like to use a rag of some sort to help protect against burns when handling the hot pouring point, and you will need a stirring utensil of some sort. I got this one from the 99 cent store. Of course, you will need a silicone baking mould of your choice, probably one without rough edges for your first time. So it is easy to pop out the melts. Once they appeared I like to use the digital scale to measure materials out. Remember to get one that can measure in grams for the best accuracy. You can use anything gloss toe. Hold your fragrance oils in like a pirates pitcher, but I like to use this bottle with a screw on pipe it because it makes it easier for me to get the right amount of pregnant soil if I don't need the whole out. Slaughter candle fragrance oils and essential oils can be used, but essential oils tend to be pricey, and you could get more of a variety with fragrance oils. My favorites buyer is candle science because my scale could wait only up to a pound. I use a small bowl to weigh my wax out in increments. Any scoop would you find so you can get the wax out of its back and wait? Lastly, I like to use a thick pot holder that I bought from the 99 Cent Store to place my mold on. In case there are so many spills when pouring out the Weps 3. Safety First: before we can get to the fun part. There are some safety tips that you will need to know when handling fragrance oils and wax . Always wash your hands after handling your materials and where gloves. If you possibly have sensitive skin, some brings oils will have a prop. 65 warnings on them. This is a warning about significant exposures to chemicals that can cause cancer for defects and other reproductive harm. The last thing that you will need to know about being a state is to know about wax and frequency oil fire hazards. In order to prevent your wax from getting too hot too fast and avoiding an explosion, you will use a double boiler. Double. Boiling is when you have a pot or pan filled with water and you have your pouring picture that would continue walks and fragrant soil inside. Pay attention and always make sure that you know what your wax temperature is at. If you are using a stove with the flame, be careful when taking melted wax in the pouring pot off the stove because if the wax drops into the flame, it will create a fire. If possible, use an electric stove or Hopley also must watch fragrance oil flashpoints. This is the temperature of which fragrance can combust if exposed to an open flame or spark . Adding fragrance to wax that is above the flashpoint will not cause it to combust with fragrance at room temperature and no claim, there is no cause for concern. Please make sure that you follow all of these safety tips for the best experience possible while making your blacksmith. 4. Weighing wax & fragrance oil: In order to find out how much wax and fragrance oil we will need way first, Have to see how much our molds will be able to hold. In order to do this, you will get your pouring picture and fill it up with 100 grams of water. Don't forget to zero out the weight of your container before you weigh in your water. Once you have your 100 grams, fill your mold until you run out. Repeat this until your whole mold is filled of water. It is best to do this next to a seat, so you could easily pour out the water when you were done. Keep track of how much water you fill up your mold. Wit, because this will help you determine how much wax and fragrance oil you will need. Don't worry. If you don't fill it up all the way, it is best to have a little bit of room than to not have extra room in case you happen to make an error along the waiting I filled up labeled with 500 grams of water. This means that each wax melts will be approximately 20 to 22 grams As you can see, this is confirmed by weighing five wax melts that I have made in the past. They totaled up to 102 grams. Now that we know how much your old bill, we need to calculate how much wax and fragrance oil you will need. I like to use 10% breakers, but you can use more or less 10% is just a good starting point. In my experience, you will multiply your total higher percentage to find out how much fragrance oil you will need. Then you will subtract that number from the total to find out how much wax you will mean. In my case, I need 450 grams of wax and 50 grams of fragrance oil, which equals to 1.76 ounces e decided to use pomegranate and mark arena fragrance oil from candle science when weighing anything in a container. Please do not forget to zero out the weight of your container before you start measuring your materials. Oh, if I only need a portion of a fragrance oil bottle, I like to use my glass. Pipe it to make sure that I get the exact amount of fragrance oil needed. Once you are done weighing your fragrance oil lease, set it aside so you can wait your soy wax next, since you're wax will be going into your pouring pot. Why about any excess water left and make sure it is dry again. Don't forget to zero of your pouring pot weight or whatever container. Wait, you are using two way out your wax. Use your scoop to get the wax out of its bag so you can wait. Once you have your wax sweet out, put it in your pouring what? Or if you waited in there already, go ahead and leave it. 5. Making your wax melts: Once you have your heating source ready, you can place the pouring picture into the parent or pot. Please make sure that you have added water to surround the outside of your picture. Don't worry if the bottom of the picture touches the pot or the pan. As long as you have water, you're fine. Don't forget that. Place your thermometer into the pouring picture so you can monitor your wax temperature the holy through. Once you have your thermometer in place, you can now turn on your stove. Watching your temperature for your wax ensures that it does not overheat. We're heating cause of explosion, so always follow the manager about your directions for your specific wax. Ideally, you don't want your wax to go above 200 F or 93 degrees Celsius. Once your wax has reached a temperature of about 170 F or 76 degrees Celsius, you can take the pouring picture out of the pot or pan. Please be careful when removing it because it will be pretty hot and you do not want to bring yourself use a rag or of admit to help support the picture. One moving it around. You can use heat resistant gloves if needed. You can add your fragrance oil right away for equal soya Q. 2 30 soy lattes. I had the fragrance oil at 170 F, or 76 degrees Celsius as soon as I take it off the hot plate. When mixing your fragrance oil in, it is recommended a stir for 2 to 3 minutes, so the oils mix well with the soy lattes, and you could have a nice even sent throughout all of your waxman. I love the wax school to about 145 F, or 62 degrees Celsius before I poured into my mould. When pouring, please be careful not to over building. Try to fill it right to the top. Don't worry too much about not getting it perfect. As you can see, I have wax dripping down and it looks a bit messy. But this isn't a perfect art, and no one is perfect. Just have fun and take it easy. Trust me. My first time was definitely not perfect as yours probably won't be either, and that's exactly why they say practice makes perfect I do recommend having another mold nearby, just in case if you have a little extra in your porn picture, just like I did. Now that the wax melts have cured, it is time to pop out of the molds. I sure hope that your melts come out as nice and smooth as these. Please don't forget to add your creations into the project gallery of this class. I'd love to see how they turned out. 6. Cleaning Materials: After pouring your wax into your molds, you will want to clean your materials as soon as possible. To clean your pouring pot. You can use paper towels and wipe out wax that is left on the sides and bottom of the pot. If you happen to have dried wax in your pie, you can run hot water against the outside of the pot and then wipe out the melted wax paper towels you're stirring. Utensils and thermometer can be wiped clean with paper towels as well. If you have a pipe it like I dio, you can roll a small piece of paper towel and put it through to clean out the fragrance oil . Oh, you can rinse out your container that held your fragrance oil in the sink. Don't worry about getting the smell out. They won't affect your next match at all. Andi. For your mold, you can wipe off the heart and wax easily and toss it in the trash. Remember to wash your hands afterwards when handling and washing your materials. 7.
