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.
