That’s where this tutorial comes in. Here on the blog today I am going to be sharing the simple step by step process of repouring a dough bowl that can be purchased in our boutique! We now offer the repour kits so you can use that pretty dough bowl again and again!
Supplies for Repouring a Dough Bowl Candle
- Empty dough bowl candle, Do not use a bowl that hasn’t been tested for candle pouring (ours have been tested wink wink)
- Dough Bowl Repour Kit (includes: 3 wicks, wick stickers, stir stick, 12oz of scented wax
- Heat Gun
- Paper Towels
Preping your dough bowl
Begin by scraping the leftover wax from the bottom and sides of your bowl with a spoon. Feel free to toss these chunks in a candle warmer or discard them. You will know when your candle is ready for repour when your wicks wont light anymore or the scent has dissipated.
Next, heat up any remaining wax using a heat gun or hair dryer, until all the remaining wax is liquified, and wipe it clean with a paper towel.
Now that your dough bowl is nice and clean, you are ready for the repouring process. In your kit you will have 3 fresh new wicks and 3 wick stickers. Place a wick sticker on the base of each wick and gently set them in the bottom of your dough bowl.
Make sure you have your wicks spaced where you want them before pressing them firmly, securing them to the bottom.
Once your wicks are placed you are ready to repour your candle.! This is where the magic happens! Start by placing your 12 oz of wax, imcluded in your kit, into the microwave for 30 seconds. Take the container out, stir and repeat until your wax has completely melted. You’re looking for a nice smooth consistency like I pictured below.
DO NOT heat your wax for more than 30 seconds at a time, This will effect the overall smell and can overheat your wax and the bowl it is in.
Once your wax is completely melted, slowly and gently pour the wax into your dough bowl. I recommend doing this step from the side, rather than pouring directly over the center.
You will notice the candle begin to set up and cool almost immediately. Leave your wicks tall until your wax has had 24–48 hours pf dry time.
It ire recommended that you set your candle to the side, for 1–2 weeks for optimal scent throw. However, it can be burned after 24–48 hours.
Y’all its that simple! Repouring a dough bowl candle using our kits in a fun way to try your hand at candle pouring and it’s made super simple with our kit! I encourage you to sign up for our waitlist so you will be notified when we release to scents and dough bowl shapes in the future!
