Prepare the Mold/Center the Pin

I'm using a round metal pillar mold with a wick pin built in. I've adjusted the wick pin and held it centered with a chopstick and twist tie. If using a wick pin, you may need to seal the bottom with a bit of mold putty or plumbers putty. (This will depend on the exact specs of your mold.)
