Exclusive to Myka Candles & Moulds and hand-poured to order in Australia using premium platinum-cure silicone. (Up to 1 week processing time)
This handmade mould is crafted from platinum-cure silicone and features a slit on one side to assist with unmoulding. Platinum-cure silicone is known for its durability and tear-resistance. It can withstand high temperatures up to 230°C, but it is not recommended to expose them to excessive heat for long periods of time. In comparison to regular silicone moulds, moulds made with platinum-cure silicone are more long-lasting and has a shelf life of more than 30 years.
To use, simply start by piercing a hole in the center of the mould where you want the wick to come out. Thread the wick through the hole and align the two sides of the mould together before securing with rubber bands. Pour in melted wax and allow it to cure overnight before carefully unmoulding the candle. For best results, preheat your mould with a heat gun prior to pouring to prevent jump lines and air bubbles getting trapped.
Please note that this mould is intentionally cut to make unmoulding easier. This, in turn, will leave a seam line on the candle, but it's appearance can be minimized by ensuring that both halves of the mould are aligned as perfectly as possible before usage.
