Step 1 - Measure out the wax.
Single Pour Container Wax:
Cutting the single pour container waxes is fairly easy. In the picture, a brownie cutter is used, but you can also use a putty knife or a butter knife. The wax can be weighed in the pouring pot so you do not have to transfer it from a different container.
Votive or Pillar Wax:
Cutting the votive waxes can be tricky. For this demonstration, the wax is scored with a utility knife. Then, the scored piece is placed on the remaining slab and pressure is applied to help break the wax on the score. You may need to do this a few times to get the wax in small enough pieces to fit in the pouring pot. (Be careful not to cut yourself or smash your fingers while doing this.) The wax can be weighed in the pouring pot so you do not have to transfer it from a different container.
Measuring soy wax is VERY easy! Simply scoop out the soy flakes or pastilles and weigh it on a scale to be sure you have enough for your candle(s).
