Step 4: Prepare mould

If you are using new wick, quickly dip it quickly into hot wax and wait a minute to harden.

Cut the brik at the middle and rinse it. Make a hole on the bottom for the wick and use the stick to maintain it upright.
<p>I saw this type of candle 40+ years ago and was intrigued by it. Now I decided to try it. It turned out pretty good. Thanks for your Instructable. Here is mine:</p><p><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Ice-Candles-Using-Ice-in-Candle-Making/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/Ice-Candles-Using-...</a></p>
Very cool I like this alot i tried it and im going to post a DIY of my variation of this with a twist and i will put u in a link to and give u credit very good idea!!!
Great! Please, post here the link so everyone can read your variation.
I remember making these in Camp Fire Girls about 40 years ago! Thanks for the happy memory and for teaching this technique to the techno-generation.
I've also heard this works really well with snow instead of ice. Or will the snow melt before it has a chance to make spaces in the wax?
Maybe! Just try and come back with a picture of your results...
&nbsp;ey! que alegr&iacute;a un instructable en castellano! Curiosamente mi primer instructable fue un motor DC, y el &uacute;nico que se quej&oacute; de que lo hicera en castellano era un argentino.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Le expliqu&eacute; que ninguna gran web, youtube, google, facebook etc, empez&oacute; en castellano, por gente como nosotros que ponen los contenidos en nuestro idioma es cuando se genera un trafico de hispanohablantes sin el cual, los webmasters no se&nbsp;pensar&iacute;an&nbsp;abrir el sitio a otro idioma.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> No obstante para proyectos originales como este, est&aacute; bien hacerlo en dos idiomas. Como motores DC aqu&iacute; hay a patadas, no me molest&eacute; en traducir el mio.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Nada m&aacute;s, solo a&ntilde;adir que esto me parece muy original y&nbsp;alg&uacute;n&nbsp;d&iacute;a&nbsp;lo&nbsp;har&eacute;&nbsp;como regalo original. &Aacute;nimo que poco a poco iremos creando comunidad en castellano. ;-)&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Un saludo!<br />
Gracias, esperemos que alg&uacute;n d&iacute;a exista la comunidad en espa&ntilde;ol. Pon una foto de tu vela si alg&uacute;n d&iacute;a lo haces. &iexcl;Saludos!<br />
I like the idea of turning it over to get the cool effects of the ice while having a secure base for hot wax to collect on. Very nice. (: <br />
Genial ya no utilizo el traductor de google jajaja, gracias por el aporte, las velas estan geniales!
hi!!! it looks really cool!!!i had some problems with the water,it spilled over to the ball with the wax when i did the boiling...so i used a cloth,to stop the water from jumping out.<br /><br />
Very cool.
buena idea de separar el instructable , asi los gabachos ya no se quejaran
Esperemos que en Instructables se den cuenta de que hace falta una herramienta para generar instructables en varios idiomas. Mientras tanto hay que hacer esto, o incluir en cada paso los dos idiomas...
eso es buena idea , deberias decirle a ewillhelm ( uno de los admins de aqui )
I've been doing this to my candles for years, I'm so amazed that I missed the oppertunity to do an instructable on it. Good job Ansanma! I like it! I suggestion thought about the layout: maybe do each step with both languages instead of a complete instructable in both Spanish and English. Great Instructable! Innovative, and of course you're recycling! Stars given!
Thank you for your comments, mikesaurus! I hope you will post some photos of your work, just to show more examples to other people... I have other instructables with both languages in each step, but some people noticed me that is so confusing, so I decided to split but inside the same instructable (I got the idea from another English-French instructable).
