Floating Candles that Dave Cushman used to make
If I was still in business I would be offering these floating candles for sale, if I get time I will describe their manufacture on this page and at the same time I will make a few and fill in the blanks in the table.
Beeswax Candles burn with a bright, clean and fragrant flame.

The moulds used for these candles were:-
Silicone rubber mould No. 776
The mould for this is a stainless steel 'ice cream sundae' dish that has a hole drilled in it's centre. The interior is highly polished and the inside of the foot is also polished and forms the mould for the 'small floater'. The mould is filled whilst standing on an electronic kitchen scale, pouring is stopped at 50 grams additional weight.
This is another sort of stainless steel dish, but filled with 100 grams of wax.
