Is there an easier way to make votives?
One of the recent developments for making votives is the votive pin. This simple devise allows a votive to be made with the wick centered each and every time. The pin also allows cotton and other specialty wicks to be used since the rigidity is not a factor. You can simply place the pin in the cup, pour the wax and if necessary top off. When the candle hardens remove the pin and slide a Pre-Wick assembly in the preformed hole of the candle.
Another new development for making votives is the exciting new V wax. This wax is truly a 1 pour designed specifically for votives. The V wax is easy to use and can hold up to 6% fragrance. It should also be noted that pins are also presently available for 2″ & 3″ diameter pillars up to 6½ in height.
