  1. Wick your mold according to its directions. Melt paraffin wax. Add any candlemaking additives that you would like. Add scent and first color of dye. Be sure to make enough of this batch to fill 2/3 of your mold.
  2. Carefully lean mold against a piece of balled up cloth. Make sure the mold is fairly steady.
  3. Pour the first batch of wax into mold and allow to cool.
  4. Melt the second color of wax. You will need to melt enough to fill 1/3 of mold. When the wax has melted add the second color of wax making sure not to change the angle of the mold. Allow to cool.
  5. Remelt the remaining wax from your first batch. Put your mold into its upright position and pour the the last batch until full.
