Frame Preparation

  1. Use thumb screws to set height of the adjustable arms (align arms) - note that for a 12" candle it will need to be set larger than 12" apart. Add Approximately 2".
  2. Tie wick to a lower arm.
  3. Wind wick onto frame, going straight up, over one arm, straight down, over one arm, etc... keeping slack out.
  4. When you reach the final arm tie off the wick while maintaining tension on it.
  5. Trim excess wick.
  6. Prepare all frames in this manner.

Basic Setup

  1. Make some type of hanging setup for the frames this may be a suspended pipe, a board with hooks, etc. It is best to have some way to hang these after each dip.
  2. For best results use 6 to 12 frames.
  3. Hold one frame by hook, extend arm straight out. The bottom of the frame is the maximum height top of your vat should be positioned. Placing the vat higher will rapidly exhaust you.

Basic Procedure

  1. Dip the frames one at a time then hang.
  2. By the time you dip the last frame, the first should be ready for its next dip.
  3. Repeat until the desired thickness is obtained.
  4. Allow to cool.
  5. Cut candles from frames. They may be left in pairs or cut apart.
  6. To remove excess wax on the frames heat the dipping vat to 190 degrees or so. Place the frames inside until the wax melts.
