Melt Pool

E.G - A candle with a two inch diameter should be left to burn for two hours, extinguished and left to cool down before relighting.

Melting Point

Microcrystalline Wax

A refined wax used as an additive to paraffin wax to make it more workable and easier to sculpt.

Mould Release

A liquid spray or powdered wax additive that is used to coat the inside of a candle mould to make it easier to remove the candle.

Mould Seal

A putty like material that is spread around the wick where it is passed through a mould. This seals the wick hole and prevents the candle from leaking molten wax of any other liquid.
