How to Make a Dip & Carve Candle Tank

Written by kim blakesley | 13/05/2017

A dip and carve candle tank has one to multiple compartments that hold coloured wax for making candles. The tank is thermostatically controlled to heat, melt and maintain the candle wax during the candle-making process. A homemade dip and carve tank is made from an electric roaster. The compartments are made from large metal cans. The thermostat on the electric roaster attains a high enough heat to melt candle wax and maintain the heat so the wax does not burn or solidify.

Wash the #10 size cans with soap and water. Note: A large electric roaster houses six #10 cans while small roaster houses only four.

Place the electric roaster on a flat work surface near an electrical socket. Place the six #10 size cans in the electric roaster.

Fill each can with Dip and Carve candle wax.

Pour water into the electric roaster until it is approximately 1-inch from the top of the #10 cans.

Heat the candle wax and maintain a temperature at 177 degrees Celsius.
