Hi, I'm Josette Redwolf, and we're here today in beautiful Key Largo, Florida at the Art Box. Today, I am here to teach you how to melt candle wax in a pot. Now I want to keep everyone safe and what I tell all of my students is I want to keep you away from the stove. There's too many accidents that happen when you're melting candle wax at a stove. So the safest ways to melt candle wax first if you're going to be using paraffin wax, you're going to get yourself a turkey roaster. It serves as a double boiler. Just like other people use on a regular stove. We're going to stay safe we're going to stay away from the stove and we're going to get a turkey roaster. You put your water down below just like a regular double boiler and your wax breaks up and goes inside. Now today we already have wax melting for the rest of our series. If you're going to be working with gel wax, that's low medium or high temperatures, you're going to want to get yourself a crock pot. Crock pots are wonderful, wonderful, when you're doing gel candles. These get just hot enough to melt your gel wax without the possibility of causing a gel fire. Now you never want to leave this crock pot going on high and walk away. OK because you don't know each one can be different and you just want to stay safe. You can take your gel and you just stick it right in and let it melt. First you can stick it on high if it's high melt point wax and leave it on high but never walk away and leave gel melting. You just want to play it safe. And that's how we melt candle both paraffin and gel in a pot.
