Pouring the Candle

David Fisher
Return the double boiler to the burner and bring the wax up to pouring temperature. With this wax it was 180 degrees--Again--follow the manufacturer's guidelines for your particular wax!
Turn off the burner!
Remove the melting pot from the burner. (You'll need a hot-pad, gloves or oven mitt for this.)

Slowly pour the melted wax into your molds. Be careful not to pour too quickly or splash the wax. Leave a little (1/8") room at the top for more wax once this step has cooled.
