Description: This votive wick pin is for use inside a votive candle mould. Place it inside the votive candle mould before pouring the wax inside the mould. Once set and the votive is removed from the mould, the votive pin can be removed leaving a hole through the centre of your votive. You can now simply slide your wick through the hole and trim, and your votive is ready to use.
Pin Diameter: 2.5mm
See the Learn More tab above for more information on using the wick pin in candle making.
Q. How does the votive wick pin work with the mould?
A. The wick pin works simply by placing and dropping down the inside of your votive mould. Once in place, you are ready to pour in the wax.
Q. How and when do I add the wick to a votive candle and how do I take the pin out?
A. Once your candle has set after about 4 to 6 hours, you will be able to release the candle from the mould and also take out your wick pin from the inside of the candle by taking hold of the candle with one hand and the other holding the wick pin. With some slight force, you will be able to pull back on the wick pin while holding the candle firmly and you will notice the pin easily sliding out of the candle. Now that the pin is completely out, you will be able to slide the appropriate wick through the hole that has been made by the pin. Once all the way through the candle and now in place you will be able to trim the wick to size.
