I Tested Clickbait DIY Candle "Hacks"

  • Publicado el 4 ago 2021
  • Hello friends! So, previously we have tested out many a bizarre hack video -- from beauty hacks, to fashion hacks, to photo/video hacks AND soap art hacks -- from Blossom, 5 Minute Crafts, and others -- and in general, I have not been impressed. BUT, a couple of months ago when I stumbled upon these beautiful CANDLE art hacks -- I fell in love. These are the coolest candles I've ever seen and I needed to have them. So we decided to pick out a few key candle art hacks and see if they are just pure clickbait, or if you can actually make any of these crafts IRL. We tried a margarita jelly candle hack, a whipped wax latte candle hack, and a wax cherry blossom tree hack. What do you guys think of our final products??
    What do you guys think of these soap hacks??
    You can check out the Blossom videos that contain our hacks here!

  • paintedcrow

    5 tips from someone who's made candles with better tutorials than Blossom's:
    - *Glue your wicks to the bottom of the candle before you even start melting wax.* Don't do the latte thing where they just shove the wick in last minute!!! They definitely just forgot it in the video and went like "well it only has to work for as long as it takes to light the candle." Your wicks need to be centered well, in the bottom of the jar, or the candle won't burn right! You can prop them on popsicle sticks laid across the rim of the jar too, to help keep them centered while your wax cools.
    - *There's an ideal temperature to add fragrances.* Look it up for the kind of wax you're using. Otherwise the scent oils can bead up in weird ways or just not bond with the wax properly. At best it won't disperse scent well (poor "throw") and at worst you can end up with pockets of flammable oil.
    - *Candle making suppliers sell coloring chips.* Saf used one for the cherry blossom branches. Honestly, I was really surprised how well the brown crayon worked for the latte drink candle--normally that doesn't go so well. Coloring chips are much more reliable. Never try to use liquid food coloring for candles, it's literally oil and water.
    - *There are lots of kinds of wax.* Even within a category, like "soy wax," there are different consistencies and they're for different things; the wax you use for jar candles is softer than the stuff you use to make pillar candles. Most kinds of soy wax have a lower melting point than paraffin (except the really hard kinds used for pillar candles), and so it probably would have been less burny to use for the cherry blossom thing because it can get cooler and still be liquid. Hard to say without testing though.
    - *In the whipping video,* their wax was already close to melting point in the bowl (it was just about to harden). You can see it starting to turn white around the edges of the bowl. It's probably easier if you let it cool off a bit first. It'd probably be a better tutorial if they _told you this._
    As always, the tutorials leave a lot out here. Real instructions just don't make as pretty of a video as attention-grabbing jumpcuts. I'm glad these worked out as well as they did though!

    On the margarita candle, perhaps allowing the "drink" portion to partially cool would hold the "ice cubes" up a little better? So there'd be more structure to provide distinction between the colored base and clear additions?
    I also agree, scenting the "cubes" would be smart!

  • Moni's Life
    Moni's Life Hace un año +135

    As a candle maker that margarita is a fire waiting to happen. The container is not thick enough and the fact that is gel wax which burns hotter than wax makes it even worse. Also fires are caused by too much fragrance/essential oil and using the wrong wick. And never ever use crayons

    The 3rd candle is actually something some do on Vietnamese new year and we stick it onto branches and we leave it in our house. But instead of lighting it we leave it there and get rid of it at the end of new year ( lasts 3 days). If you want to do it I recommend you have cold water nearby and coat the flower 2 or 3 times because it becomes thicker making it less breakable and easier to remove

    The cherry blossom branches are basically just very oldschool candlemaking. Start with a wick, dip it, hang to dry, repeat for 7 million years until it's thick enough to be sturdy and burn slow. So that's pretty cool!

      @Jamie Probably not harder as far as construction goes but definitely much more of a fire hazard... they were lucky that the flames did not touch the foam (even if it didn't catch on fire but melted instead, there still would be some horrid and possibly toxic fumes)

    • Pendlera

      It would probably have been harder considering that they'd have to either shove the wicks into a vase of hardened wax or time everything so the wicks went in while the wax was still soft, but not so soft the wicks fell over.

  • Red

    not a candle maker, but as a professional baker i have sooooo many ideas on how to whip the wax more efficiently:
    - you could use ice bath while whipping it, or just some cool water if it hardens too fast
    - you could let it semi-harden, THEN whip it so the hard bits and the liquid bits blend together in the desired texture while it fluffs up, but that risks in it being a bit chunky
    - same technique as above but instead of letting it harden you melt half the wax and after cooling it a bit you dump in the other half to get the right temperature and texture (we use technique for tempering chocolate, and the name for it in french translates to "insemination" 😳)
    - im just having fun at this point but if you have a marble countertop, you could spread it around with a spatula or bench scraper until it thickens, then return it to the bowl for whipping
    a lot of these ideas come from working with chocolate cuz wax and cocoa butter (a component in chocolate) do seem to share a lot of qualities, so that white chocolate comparison wasnt too far off actually 😂 and again tho, im not a candlemaker so dont quote me on any of this lol

      ⚡Coffee-Ouji⚡ Hace un año +3

      the last tip is how you make branch chocolate! that's how we call it in my country.
      basically is doing what they said but just folding it until it almost hardens, make a thin sheet and then roll and/or fold it until it looks like a cinammon branch
      it's so fun to bite into! i think it's also good for people who can't bite the hard chocolate
      and it's so fun to watch being made too, last time i saw a dude irl do it they were showing the little kids in the fair

    • ⚡Coffee-Ouji⚡
      ⚡Coffee-Ouji⚡ Hace un año +3

      the comparison of the chocolate and wax was good because cocoa butter it's very stiff compared to other oils/butters which is why natural lip balms for people with sensitive skin are pure cocoa butter, i think

    I just realised something: The video where they showed how the cream was made.... it's definetly egg whites!!! It looks 100% like egg whites, and also foams up exactly the same way (like, the little sprinkles on the sides of the bowl and the consistency) They probably filmed the video of the actual process and were like 'no this is really not presentable enough' and just took egg whites to make it look nice and pretty.

      Honestly, maybe, maybe not. Could be that they did it to save time, but if you look at the video, there seems to be a thin film on the sides of the bowl that seems more opaque like dried candle wax. Based on other websites and other tutorials, it's totally possible to whip the candle wax in less time than they did anyway, they just didn't let it cool down at all before starting like they should have LMAO

    The Blossoms flower part can be done differently !
    Personally, I use the store candles and just use the candles like normal, except they melt wayyyyyy easier and because of that, they are fully melted and the wax is not even hot ! It’s actually feels like dipping your hand onto your average warm bath water. They dried very quickly and come of easy, too

  • Ruby Lynn
    Ruby Lynn Hace 2 años +101

    For the cherry blossom candle “it’s wax to wick ratio is so off,”: I wonder if you could make the branches before hand the same way (maybe smaller…?), set them in a large enough vase and then fill that larger vase slowly with cherry/cherry-blossom scented clear jelly wax? Then you could see the branches but maybe the flames would a smidge more controlled. That candle might be huge if you’re not careful though.

    for the margarita candle one, it would be easier if you poured the candle wax half way in cup first, let that harden and then put the ice cubes in and poured the rest of the wax solution after (make sure not to overflow it). It would have been easier to show visibility of the ice

  • LadyMustang
    LadyMustang Hace 2 años +2495

    As a candle maker myself, something that should be said when it comes to gel wax is you have to make sure whatever oil you use is gel safe fragrance. If you have a fragrance oil within a certain flashpoint it can literally make the candle explode. And there are percentages of wax to fragrance ratios.
    The wax frosting you need to cool the wax before whisking the wax. It’s quite easy and quick to make. But you do have to wait for it to cool before whipping it. I don’t know why they call these hacks!

    • Dodi Xaverius
      Dodi Xaverius Hace 2 años +162

      I think they called it hack to lure into false pretense that these are easy as they presented it to be, that any average human could do it. However, it's been pointed out on the soap maker channel that they still put questionable and even potentially dangerous stuff into soaps. They did not care at all on actual practical function of the thing they create, they just care to look pretty.

    • LadyMustang
      LadyMustang Hace 2 años +66

      @Dodi Xaverius yeah it’s incredible in a very sad way how they can keep putting up the dangerous “hacks” they do. It actually pinched a nerve a little seeing people just randomly putting stuff in the gel wax without figuring the right ratio and also now knowing the flashpoint of the oils.

  • Laura Hart
    Laura Hart Hace un año +5

    Just as a heads up. The candle won’t work for very long for the coffee candle. You need a dye for the wax, not mica powder (which is what in your crayons). If you use mica, the mica will start to cut off flow of the wax to the flame via the wick. So, even if you WANTED to burn your coffee candle, it wouldn’t work for very long.

    Whenever you use wax on your body, go for Soy wax. It melts on a way lower degree and dries off much faster. Paraffin needs a higher degree until it melts. You could also just go for some specially designed body wax, which is safe and has some essential oils in it. Please don´t burn yourself next time

    my first day of preschool I've been told I made a beeswax candle - the type where you roll up a sheet of beeswax around a wick. My mom says I was so proud and excited at the prospect of her using it. Lo and behold at dinner that night she set it on a candle holder and LIT IT ON FIRE! Tiny me was horrified at my art being destroyed and cried not understanding that candles are very different from my older siblings drawings on the fridge where they stayed safe.

    I’m surprised that Blossom didn’t show how to make candles from-
    Oh yeah…
    Anyways, if you ever want to make candles from scratch, it isn’t hard! I’m not 100% wether or not you’ve don’t it already.
    Step one: Get a block of regular (it will be white/opaque) wax, no colorations or anything.
    Step two: Get colored dye from the store, it will almost always be scented. This is on purpose.
    Step three: Place large stew pan on stove with water half way-ish.
    Step four: Take a pan with handles that will fit into the stew pan without touching the water, place a metal rod long enough to stop it from falling in through the handles.
    Step five: Take regular wax and place it into the small pan.
    Step six: Wait until wax is melted, then add dye.
    Step seven: Tie pre-waxed wick to soda can tab. Place that on bottom of container so wick stays above the top edge.
    Step eight: If the wick will not stay, wrap it around a utensil. Knife, fork, spoon, anything not too round. So pencils and chopsticks are out the window. (Knives work really well)
    Step nine: Pour melted wax into container until it reaches desired level. Make sure the wick stays above it.
    Step ten! Wait until cool, then take wick off of utensil.
    Feel free to create lavender, apple, cinnamon, and more! You can even add ice cubes at certain points to create a REALLY cool effect.
    This is coming from a person who spent their childhood making candles

  • Add E

    Soy wax probably would have been better for the cherry blossom one. Paraffin is pretty soft for a candle, which is why it melts at a temperature low enough to just shove your whole fist into (you had it too hot). Soy needs a bit more heat but is still skin safe with the water barrier, and it dries harder and thicker. As for usage, it would be great on top of a birthday cake, especially if you stripped the brown wax off the ends of the wicks and dipped them in the pink while you were waiting for the temp to come down for finger insertion.

  • Des-astre

    Something cool you can try with a candle is when you blow it out, if you quickly hold a flame in the smoke trail above it, it will reignite the candle just using the vapor (I wonder how this trick would work with the cherry blossom candle and that plume of smoke?)

      I see how you think this due to the way it was edited, but in reality Safiya made all the candles before lighting any of them, proven by the shot near the end that shows all the candles with their wicks still white, so by the time she lit the margarita candle and realized it needed scent in the cubes, she had already made the other two candles so it was too late.
