Our new kit gives you the creative freedom to cast wax candles of any shape using a silicone mould of your clay piece. Create intricate designs and sculptures in clay which can be perfectly recreated in wax.
The kit includes all materials, tools and guidance you’ll need to get started creating beautiful wax candle castings.
How it works:
Step 1: Create your piece in clay
This kit comes with 650g of our smooth and supple air drying clay for you to sculpt any clay creation you'd like to cast in wax.
Step 2: Mould your piece with silicone

Candle Casting Kit Tips
Size - Be sure to check your clay piece fits inside one of the sizes of moulding cup provided.
Surface - the smoother the surface of your clay creation, the smoother and shinier your candle will be, so focus on removing any of those cracks, creases, lumps and bumps to get the best results.
Finishing - part of the beauty of creating beautiful candles and sculptures in wax is how easy it is carve and add detail to your piece even after it sets. A little melted wax can be used to smooth over any imperfections and sharp knife can be used to make adjustments.
