Manufactured in the USA, our metal molds are made from a rigid aluminum. They are durable, long-lasting and will withstand many years of multiple use. Our 3" x 4" round metal mold is 4 inches tall by 3 inches in diameter and holds approximately 14 ounces of wax. This classic shaped pillar candle mold works wonderfully to highlight specific design techniques such as pouring candles with multi-colored layers of wax or it is beautiful to make a single color pillar candle and then embellish it with decorations.

Additional equipment that you will need to use with this mold may include the following:
- Wax - we prefer beeswax for its natural attributes, but it is completely up to you as to the type of wax to use.
- Wicking* - If using beeswax to make your round pillar candle, we recommend to try using a #2 square braid wicking.
- Melting pot - we recommend to use a combination of our metal melting pot with pour spout and our double boiler stand ring to make a double boiler.
- Thermometer - to monitor the temperature of your melting wax.
- Magnetized mold sealer - to seal the wick hole on the bottom of the mold.
- Silicone spray - to help your candle remove easily from the mold.
- Colorant and/or fragrance - if desired.
- Wooden skewers - to release air bubbles from your cooling candle.
