Makers Manual #26: Bending Candles

Makers Manual is a collaborative project between exciting makers and STORE STORE. These downloadable manuals are a practical guide to making at home for beginners and experts.

Candles and wax are fascinating. Wax can be solid, liquid but the moment in between is the best. When it’s flexible and bendable. We will focus on bending candles in a variety of shapes and bends. By using hot water we can deform the candles in multiple ways to create your own design. The flexibility of wax is a true material experiment that combines, form function and fun. You can use a variety of colors and simple household tools to create a family of candle characters.
