For this project you'll need:
- A floating flower mold - (Note: I'm using a Sunflower mold that I got from Pourette a couple of years ago. They had all sorts of really wonderful unique candle molds - but they've since gone out of business. Check Ebay for Pourette molds - or many of the other candle suppliers have floating flower molds.)
- A votive or pillar blend wax - I'm using IGI 4761. It's a nice creamy, low-shrink votive blend.
- A few inches of wick appropriate for your candle - I'm using a wick that would normally be considered too small for this candle - a votive wick 44-24-18z - but because it's a floater, I've "wicked down" to let the candle burn down through the center and float as long as possible.
- Fragrance and color, as desired. I'm using Chrysanthemum Fragrance Oil and a gold color chip, ((sigh) also from Pourette - you'll have to use a liquid color - or another supplier's colorant.)
- Clothespins or binder clips to clamp the mold closed
- A coffee can or large glass to hold the mold
- Basic candle making equipment and an understanding of Candle Making Safety and Candle Making Basics
