Description: The clamshell moulds provide an ideal way to make and package your home fragrance wax melts for oil burners. Essentially they are the mould and you can pour molten wax straight into them. When set and closed up, they can then become your packaging or you can use them time and again for creating wax melts.

Q. How much wax and fragrance does each clamshell mould need?
A. Ideally you should not fill your clamshell mould all the way to the top, but rather fill to 5mm from the top. This equates to an approximate total of 74 grams of wax and fragrance. We recommend 6 grams of fragrance per clamshell mould so that each individual melt when snapped off has 1 grams of fragrance.
Q. This sounds complicated. Is there an easy way to do it?
A. One simple production method would be to pour 5 clamshell moulds at once. Melt 340 grams of wax, being 68 grams for each clamshell mould. Add 30 grams of fragrance, being 6 grams per clamshell mould. Then pour each clamshell so they each have approx 74 grams total in them. You can even use the scale initially for this until you get your pouring heights correct.
Q. Can I remove my melts from the clamshell mould and re-use the mould to pour more melts again?
A. Yes, you can use your clamshell moulds over and over. Essentially you are using them like a mould or of course you can close them up with your finished melts inside them and use the clamshell mould as finished packaging.
Very happy with the clamshell moulds. Easy to use and close and hang perfectly on my hanger. Best price I've found so far! Thanks Eroma!
