"It all starts with an idea" Earl Nightingale

From and idea to a physical candle sculpture, start to finish our process includes designing, prototyping, mold making, casting, demolding and fine polishing.

DESIGNING & PROTOTYPING

PREPARATION OF MODELS FOR MOLDING

Models need to be processed in order to make molds and consequently castings (candles) as successful as possible and with as few irregularities as possible.

Models are glued (if they are printed in several parts due to the stability of the structure)

After gluing, the models are treated with putty and car paint and sanded to smooth out any irregularities that could be transferred to the mold.

HOUSING / DEGASSING

MOLD PREPARATION

Molds should be thoroughly cleaned and dried before casting as these are two-part molds, they need to be fixed well and carefully so that the joints are as invisible as possible.

Before casting the wax, steel wires of different thicknesses are prepared with the corresponding holders in order to enable the subsequent placement of the wick in the candles.

CASTING

UNMOLDING & FINISHING

After casting, the candle is cooled in the mold at room temperature for about 6 hours, after which it is carefully removed from the mold.
It is important not to leave the candle in the mold for too long or to remove it too soon.
After removing the candle from the mold, it is necessary to process the joints and small irregularities with modeling tools.
