How to Custom Make Wax Candles Using Sugru Moulds

FQD2Z03ID4CSF87 ANIMATED LARGE

Fun project tutorial via Hey Jude on instructables! Via Make.

This Instructable will show you how to make your own Birthday Candle Mould, so that you can cast all sorts of wax shapes, and use them as party candles – including Lego Minifigures!

I recently finished a detailed Instructable on Casting Objects in Sugru. I found that it is possible to cast Pewter into Sugru (a hand-mouldable silicone putty): First you make a wax mould, and then using a technique known as a ‘lost wax process’, create a second mould for casting the Pewter copy into. The result was a pretty cool Pewter Lego Minifigure.
