Pouring the Candle

Let the wax cool to about 170 degrees. Slowly pour the wax into the mold, being careful not to hit the wick pin assembly. Make sure to save a bit of wax for the repour. (Unless you're going to use a heat gun to top it off.) When the candle forms a 1/4" skin on the top, poke some relief holes in the top to let any air bubbles escape.
