Candle Tip 101: Smooth Candle Tops

Hello Friends!

I know many of you candle makers (and candle lovers of course) run into the issue of cracked candle tops when either making a candle or realizing you have cracks AFTER you’ve purchased a candle. Cracked tops or “holes” that appear on the tops of your candle can happen for a variety of reasons and often occurs with All Natural Waxes. FEAR NOT though! A simple solution is a HEAT GUN! On the lowest setting, use your heat gun to smooth over unwanted holes, cracks and bubbles and you’ll have yourself a blemish free candle 🙂

Remember though to ALWAYS cover your working area with newspaper to avoid spills. Enjoy!
