Chunky candles are made of wax chunks, leftover pieces can be utilised or fresh ones can be made . Its a good way of recycling old wax. Keep collecting all leftover chunks of wax in a box and used as required to make an awesome chunky candle .
Melt wax in a double boiler , mix in additives , prime wick , prepare the mold , put in the chunks and pour in the wax.
TIP- The secret of making chunky candles lies in the temperature measured with a kitchen thermometer. The pour in should be at a low temperature , just as the wax turns liquid. If the wax poured is very hot then the chunks will melt with the heat and one will be left with a messy colored candle !
