Bring the beauty of nature into your candle making with our collection of Flower Moulds. Our silicone candle moulds are designed with intricate details that will create stunning peonies, roses, and other beautiful blooms for any occasion. They are made from high quality silicone material that can withstand extreme hot and cold temperatures, making them durable and long-lasting.

How to use our Flower Silicone Moulds

To begin crafting your candle with our moulds, initiate by inserting the wick through the mould's centre, and securing it firmly with a wick holder. Proceed to fill the mould with your choice of melted wax (we recommend our Soy Pillar Wax Blend because it’s great!) and dye, then wait for it to solidify completely. For an alternative method, once the wax starts to set and turns opaque, use a skewer to create a central hole. After the wax has hardened fully, gently release the candle from the mould and thread a pre-tabbed wick through the skewer-created opening. The wax type might necessitate a second pouring to smooth out the candle's top surface. It's recommended to let your candle set overnight before demoulding it with care.

Care Instructions

To ensure the longevity and performance of your silicone moulds, a little care goes a long way. Begin by cleaning your moulds with warm, soapy water before the first use and after each subsequent use. Avoid using sharp objects or abrasive cleaners that could damage the mould's surface. For stubborn wax residues, a gentle soak in warm soapy water usually does the trick. Always dry your moulds thoroughly before storing them in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. With proper care, your moulds will continue producing beautiful candles for years.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I use these silicone moulds for baking or making cake decorations?

Absolutely! While our flower silicone moulds are designed with candle making in mind, their high-quality, food-grade silicone material makes them perfectly safe and suitable for baking. You can use them to create stunning cake decorations, chocolates, or even jelly in intricate flower shapes. Just ensure the moulds are thoroughly cleaned before switching between uses to avoid cross-contamination.

How do I prevent my candles from sticking to the mould?

To ensure your candles release smoothly from the moulds, consider lightly coating the interior with a small amount of cooking oil or a silicone mould release spray before pouring in the wax. This step can significantly aid in the unmoulding process. Additionally, allowing your candle to cool and set completely before attempting to unmould can help prevent sticking and preserve the intricate details of your candle's design.

Can I add colours and fragrances to my candles when using these moulds?

Yes, you can! Our silicone moulds are compatible with various wax types, colours, and fragrances, allowing you to customise your candles to your heart's content. When adding colours and fragrances, ensure to follow the recommended guidelines for the wax you're using to achieve the best results. Experimenting with different combinations can lead to unique and personalised candle creations that reflect your style and preferences.
