Candle pieces are carefully crumbled: cut with a sharp knife or grind on a coarse grater and put into a container for melting. Fill the pot with water to 1/4 of the volume and set on fire.

As the wax heats up, let's take a dye. We take a wax crayon and very finely crumble it with a knife. Add the crushed wax crayon to the paraffin chips and put the capacity for melting in a pot of boiling water.

Leave the wax with the dye to melt and move on to the formation of the base of the candle "The Pink Mirage". We take the form in which the candle will be poured, and carefully lubricate it with vegetable oil, and then fix the wick in it. We lower it to the desired length in the mold, the excess cord is wound on the holder (this can be a pencil or a skewer) and fasten, for example, with a clothespin.

Now fill the form with ice cubes. If you want to get small and often recurring cavities on the surface of the candle, then fill the shape with chopped ice. To do this, simply knead the ice cubes with a sharp knife. If the cavities on the surface of the candle should be large, fill the container with whole cubes.

That's it, the candle is ready, leave it for 45-60 minutes to cool, and then drain the water that is in shape. Carefully, without removing the candles from the container, pour the water over the edge and leave the candle for 4-6 hours for final solidification.
