As always, start by melting your palm wax.
While you're waiting for the wax, you can start gathering your twist ties and cello bags. This project goes rather quickly, so you'll be able to put your finished melts into the cello bags in about 15 minutes from when you start making them.
Once your wax has reached the appropriate temperature, go ahead and add your fragrance and coloring. For adding fragrance, I follow the same usage guidelines as when I'm making candles, and I've found it to work well. For a few of the colors, I used a very small amount of mica powder.
The palm wax needs to be poured at a hotter temperature, to bring out the crystal-like designs. I poured my wax at 205* into room-temp plastic molds.
*Note: When using the Embed Molds, these molds are rather thick, so you can pour the wax a bit hotter that you would need to for a clam shell mold.
These melts cool rather quickly in these small molds. The melts will cool within just a few minutes at room temperature and will pop out of the mold with no effort.
Soon, you'll have a quickly growing supply of adorable wax melts!
Once the melts are 100% cooled, now you can start putting them in cello bags.
Try putting your melts ahead of the rest and give them a try at your next craft show or farmer's market!
