Putting A Wick Hole Into Your Candle Silicone Mold

Dawn Shaffer

This is a quick video on how to put a wick hole into your silicone mold.  You may have purchased a mold that didn't have any hole.  I usually don't mail mine out with a hole because I want the choice to be yours.

What  I have been noticing is that when you get the mold, you don't dare to put in the  wick hole .  If this is your situation, let us grab the bull by the horns and let's go make a wick hole.

Now the choice is yours  without the fear of ruining your mold.

The materials you need:

  1. Primed wick
  2. Needle nose pliers
  3. Tapestry need
  4. Silicone mold - In this case I have an owl silicone mold
  5. Chosen wax

Materials needed

This is what the bottom looks like after you pull your primed wick through.  I make sure I leave about an inch so I can fold it off  to the side.

The advantages of doing it yourself is that you can put the wick hole wherever you want.  For example, if I make a frog I might put the wick hole through its mouth.  You may instead like the hole going through the top of the head.  Or you might like 2 holes instead of one.

Again the choice is left up to you.

If you still don't want to do this yourself, you are more than welcome to specify where you want the hole placed.  =)

Have you tackled doing this before?  Did it bother you to place your own wick hole?

Your Mold Maker,

Hi Dawn, I use my drill press with a bit the same diameter as the wick. This works great and fast. The wick is always straight. Lori
