Clear, medium density gel wax. Best known for being completely clear, used for all sorts of candles - under-water aquarium scenes, beers, cocktails etc. With just a little bit of colour added, these candles remain transparent and take on the nature of the glass and embeds you choose.

Completely clear, melt to a maximum of 140°C - gel wax cannot be melted over water. Double saucepan set-up does not product enough heat, so great care must be taken when melting directly on the heat. Use as low heat as possible stirring constantly and DO NOT leave unattended. Turn it off if you leave the area.

1 Kg of Gel wax will melt down to make approximately 1.25 Litres of liquid.

If your wax goes cloudy here are a few items which may have caused this.

All wicks used must be uncoated as paraffin wax and soy wax may cause reactions.

Fragrances with a high flashpoint should be used. Please check with your supplier before using fragrance.

All items used for decoration must be thoroughly cleaned before adding into the vessel.

To clean simply peel off excess wax and wipe clean.
