Clamshell Wax Moulds

These clamshell moulds are ideal to create the perfect size melt pod for a tea-light burner.   They are also ideal to store any left over wax from a made candle batch.  It can be used with both soy wax and paraffin wax.  ( Please take care not to add the wax at a high temperature, always let it cool down before pouring, especially with paraffin wax.)

Product Specifications:  Material: PET/ 10 clamshells per packet.

Note: *Cavity volume: The cavities are not divided all the way to the top so each piece would be 16.66ml. The cavity portion itself is approx. 10ml.

  • 500g soy wax ( here we would recommended C3, S100, Soi ) 
  • 40ml fragrance per 500g on 8% fragrance ratio
  • 5 x Clamshell moulds

 

Equipment you will need:

  • Double boiler (Pot within a pot WITH WARM water to melt the wax – Bain Marie, similar to melting chocolate)
  • Wax
  • Fragrance
  • Pouring jug ( ANY heat resistant jug can be used )
  • Clamshell moulds

Easy to follow Instructions:

  • Add 500g wax flakes to the pot ( bain marie )
  • On a low temperature, melt the flakes slowly (If you have a thermometer this would be at around 65 degrees Celsius.)
  • Pour the melted wax into a pouring jug, and add 40ml of fragrance. 
  • Once the fragrance is blended for 1 minute, gently pour into the clamshell moulds.
  • Be sure not to pour this while too hot.  
  • Take care not to overfill them, as the lid will struggle too close.
  • Leave them to dry overnight, and only close them once completely solid.
  • One they have been cured, gently break off a block, place in a burner, and enjoy.
