NB: If you know the volume of your mould in millilitres (cc/ml) then multiplying that figure by the density of the wax you are using (see the table above), that will give you an accurate approximation of how much wax (in grams) the mould will take.

Mould Volume
Because by definition water has a density of 1.0, the weight of the water in grams that a mould holds is equivalent to its volume in cc. So, weigh the mould, fill it with water and weigh again then take the difference - easy.

Make sure you dry the mould before pouring wax into it or the candle finish may be ruined.

Always buy from you and am very happy with the service. I was a little worried when the product I buy was out of stock for a while. However when I called, your sales assistant was very apologetic. She explained what the problem was and assured me that it would be in stock soon. She offered to let me know when the item was back in stock and I received an email today so, I would like to thank Paula for the email and the rest of the team for great customer service. Thank you.

This is definitely the best UK site I've found for candle making. I haven't made them before and lack of options was making me hesitant to try this. But I found your site and I'm definitely going to try it, I've wanted to do it for ages and was held back by high delivery prices and prices of oils. So I'm very grateful to have found your site and will most definitely use it again!!
