Apply oil on the inside of your wax mold and assemble with the base. Do not add wick
Take the chunks of different colored wax in hand and fill the mold in layers
Compact each layer lightly with a dowel or a wooden peg and fill to the top of the mold
Step 3: Pour Melted Wax

Melt wax in a double boiler and pour over the chunks in the mold
When the wax is still hot, poke holes with a thick needle and fill again
Keep the mold in a water bath for cooling
Step 4: Remove From Mold

Once the wax in the mold is cooled down, remove it from the water bath and detach the base
Lightly brush the candle out from the top. The chunk candle will slide out from the mold
Step 5: Add Wick

Lightly heat the thick needle and poke a hole in the center all the way down
Insert a pre-waxed wick through the hole. It is very difficult to insert the normal cotton wick. So, if you have an only cotton wick, take the required length and dip in melted wax.
Our chunk candle from left-over wax is ready. You can light it in any special occasion as you desire
