Vintage Tea Cup Candle
(mykitchenantics)

Step One:
Gather your materials
-Vintage tea cups with saucers (you can get these anywhere from Etsy to Goodwill to your Grandma's attic)
-Candle wicks (waxed)
-Wooden skewers (8, to hold the wicks in place)
-Heat proof bowl
-Saucepan
-Cup with spout (to pour wax)
-500g soy wax
-2g wax dye
-Fragrance oil

Step Two:
"Before getting on with the process make sure you have set up the containers with wicks etc. I first tried to keep the wicks in place with a clothes peg balanced on the rim, but when i poured in the wax, with the slightest movement they changed position. So I placed two skewers on either side of the wick to keep it in place (as in picture)."

Step Three:
"Once the mis en place is intact, heat enough water in a saucepan to come about half way up and bring to a simmer."
Step Four:
"Place the wax in the heat proof bowl (cut them up into smaller pieces if they are in a block, to allow easy and even melting) along with the wax dye and let it slowly melt. 
Use a long wooden skewer to stir in between if needed."
Step Five:
"Once the wax has completely melted, take it off bain marie and keep aside to cool a bit. 
Pour in the fragrance oil at this point, stir with the skewer and slowly pour into the cups till about 3/4th full. If the wicks have moved a bit, don't worry, just readjust. The wax is not going to set immediately. Also, rinse out your utensils quickly."
Step Six:
"Don't move the candles until its completely set. If there is a bit of sinking in the centre, just warm some more wax and fill it up."
