I have a melted-crayon decorative candle idea, but I can't figure out the last step.
The concept is based on melting crayons using the sun & foil, to create art or new crayons.
Instead, I want to melt crayons inside a small glass, ceramic or plastic container (preferably glass or even ceramic), such as a shot glass. I will warm up the container with a candle warmer or a beverage warmer plate.
My issue will be removing the formed candle after it's melted as desired. I don't think it'll just pop out once cooled.
Is there a way I can easily remove the wax, keeping the form intact? Or, is there a way to prep the container beforehand?
I should be able to test this on existing small candles or tealights we have that are in glass, but it will be some time before I can test other container materials.
(I don't know if there are different "types" of wax. If there are, please advise what type crayons typically are.)
