Today we will make gifts for Valentine’s Day. We will do the candles with our own hands.
Do not be alarmed that so many things have to – because almost all of this you have at home
There are two ways to make a spark – easier and more difficult. It is more difficult to show oba.Dlya take cardboard and cut off from it 2 strips width of about 10cm (this is the approximate height of the next candle) + 1cm. In one strip it back down 1cm and carry along with an awl – a place of a fold. This is the edge of doing fashion “haircut” scissors (see. Photo).Divide the two strips in half (handy range) and is conducting an awl (or something sharp) – place the fold. Ta-dum:
Now we take a leaf of paper, bend it in half and cut out the heart, as once cut out valentines. Expand and here it is – a symmetrical heart. Now draw out and take it on a path to the cardboard. Cut.
Now sticking. If you, like me, do not like to mess around with glue, then until the cutting notches for our designer to this place you just need to paste the strip double-sided tape and cut with him. Or is now miss the mark this place with glue.Glue to the bottom wall of the Heart, from the tip of the heart (here we have the fold), allowances out to left bottom of a flat. Excess cut off, we get
to glue hollow heart take a small strip 10h2sm cardboard, bend it with an awl and line in half lengthwise and bonded with glue or tape.
That heart is not “sprawling” (if you have reached this stage, you will understand than me, I gained strength hollow stapler, but I think it is possible and in any other way:
From the second cardboard strips do the same heart, but without bottoms and smaller size (which is much faster and easier):
Now the time – for the variant is easier (remember, we said at the beginning), you can use a jar of something and a piece of cardboard will only need a stapler Please note that the edges of the jars were as straight as possible (otherwise, then it will be difficult to pull out a candle)..
Now handy baking paper so that later the candle lighter was removed from the mold , wrap it from the inside of the paper and insert one element into another. between the walls fall asleep formed our filler (eg coffee). at the same time presses the inner heart to the bottom, so that the coffee does not come under the cardboard and not pokorezhilas form. I’m in the center, too, poured some coffee, but that does not necessarily: relinquish our billet in the direction and undertake the weight of the candle. Stela cloth, take a knife and a candle and a sharp tip of a knife as if we divide it along. However, it crumbles, we clear the wick from the pieces left on it, if you need a little prick with a knife: Cooking steam room – turn the stove, put on her tank with a little water, put into a tin jar, which crumbled pour candles. It took me 4 pieces.Conventional thin candles one heart. I it looks like this: If all at once did not fit, do not worry, the candle melts and you fill up the remainder. As you can see in the photo, from the jar is “nose”, it I made with the help of pliers, but you can do without it, just gently . then pour While melting candle, can be added to the dye – wax pencils, one per serving, you can mix a few colors to get the desired shade .Meshaem all stick. Now the important point. Take the pliers / pliers comfortably in the hand and they take out a jar of water. You can replace them with potholders. Dipped excess water. Pour quite a bit on the bottom and try to evenly distribute. Let cool down a little (put on the windowsill or in the refrigerator). We do this in order to form the inner part of the gelled wax to the bottom and the next phase of the wax does not flow in. Now pour the molten mass between the walls of the mold:
Give to congeal. Prior to the “not flowing but still warm.” Carefully take out the internal form. It may seem complicated at first, as she clung to the walls and bottom. I shamelessly ditch it and take out the pieces. From the bottom of heavier, but there is help me pliers (not slides.
We got the whole board, take a stick and pulls on it one end of the wick. By the way, you can twist the wick of the two, we have learned of the candles, because our future candle will be thicker. put the wand across form the wick to the bottom:
made up to the top Give cool completely (I put on the windowsill, it is very cold with this time of year) Now you have to get a candle from the form of cardboard in general is not a problem – a bit Mnemonic shape in his hands… .., that baking paper behind the board is the same with tin Main patience and candle itself will release paper what we have..
You can stop at this stage, but I prefer the texture of why equips lighter to light candles on a piece of paper.. sit comfortably, ignite, trays to the wall of the candle, trying to her concerned the blue, not rusty flames.
From the decor to smoke red (notice the seeds, I gape, photographing):
it is therefore not suitable in place of other candle lighters. Recommend it to do a hot hair dryer, but my hair is not enough hot words, look for the best for himself the way. I have so far but plan to buy a gun.
All the candle is almost ready. It may happen so that after cooling down the middle fossa is formed around the wick. I collect wax, wherein the alloy from the walls, melting it again, top up to the center. When hardens, smoothing face with a knife (to smooth state) and warm fingers and rags (to shine and remove traces of the knife). Submitting decor. Ta-dum:
