Beer Mug Candles Recipe
of Ormond Beach, FL
Gel candles that look just like beer
Small amount of paraffin wax
7" 51 series zinc wick
Candle fragrance oil with flashpoint of 170 degrees or higher
Gold candle safe coloring
THE BEER: Follow the instructions for preparing the gel wax. Do not over heat. The cooler the gel, the more bubbles you will have. While this is heating, get your wick positioned in the mug using a little melted paraffin to hold the wick in place. Add your color and your scent to the gel wax (I use vanilla)and stir thoroughly.
Pour into mug, stopping about an inch from the top. Pull up on your wick to straighten it.
THE HEAD: Melt paraffin wax at med low heat. Once it has melted, take off the burner and add fragrance. Start whipping it up with a fork. As the wax cools, it will turn white again, and your whipping will make it frothy. When it is is thick enough to be spooned out, spoon it on top of the "beer" in the mug. This forms the beer's head. Tug your wick again, and while it is setting up to be sure it stays straight.
