Comments - Modern Industrial DIY: How to Make Concrete Soy Candles

Marilyn Tilson on Jan 27, 2020:

Do you need to seal the concrete before pouring in the wax? If so, what do you use> Thanks

@Sara The mold is actually made by Wilton and originally designed for cookie shots! You can often find them in the baking section. I'm not sure what brand the cement was...it was standard powder from a hardware store. I hope that helps!

Hello!! I Just got in to making cement planters and such.
Where did you find the tray of silicon molds? I have bought individual, but I couldn't find one like yours!
Also, what brand of concrete are you using?
Thanks, Sara

hello dear,

Your candles are beautiful, I can't wait to give your method a try as I love candles. I tried to make concrete candles once but failed as the concrete cracked when exposed to the high temperature of the candle flame, any suggestions of how I can prevent the cracks from forming ?

Thank you so much in advance

hi, I was told that a clay flower pot or cement has pores and need to be seal before adding the wax.
true or false ? and what sealer would be ok to use if I want to use fragrance oil with soy wax ?

Hi! Thank you for this tutorial - they turned out beautifully. However, for the LIFE of me I cannot find a silicone mold like yours. They are only being sold individually for $30 each in China.
Can you share where you bought the mold?

Thank you,
