Variety: Silicone molds come in a variety of shapes and sizes to meet a variety of creative needs. Whether it is a simple bar mold or a complex pattern mold, you can find it.

Durability: Silicone molds have good heat and cold resistance and can be used at different temperatures. In addition, they are also very durable and can be used repeatedly.

Ease of use: The surface of the silicone mold is smooth and easy to demould, making the wax melting and production process more convenient. At the same time, cleaning silicone molds is also very simple, just use mild detergent and a soft cloth.

Safety: The silicone mold is made of food-grade silicone, which is non-toxic and odorless and can be used safely.

Innovation: Using customized silicone molds, unique candles can be made, increasing the innovation and personalization of the product.

Silicone mold types and designs

According to the different silicone molding processes, silicone molds can be mainly divided into the following three types:

Liquid silicone mold: This kind of mold is mainly used to copy various products, including handicrafts, cultural relics, etc. Liquid silicone is easy to operate, non-corrosive and will not cause any damage to the product, so it is very popular.


Molded silicone mold: This type of mold is mainly used for the production of silicone products. All the raw materials used in silicone products are made into silicone products through vulcanization and oil pressure after passing through the high temperature and high pressure of the mold. This mold is called silicone molded products.

Extrusion silicone mold: This kind of mold is mainly used to make silicone extrusion products.

How to make candles from silicone molds

  • Preparing Materials: First, you'll need to prepare your wax melt material (such as beeswax, soy wax, or palm wax), essential oils, colorant (if needed), and the silicone mold of your choice.
  • Melt the wax melt: Place the wax melt in a heat-resistant container and melt it in a microwave or hot water bath. Note that the wax melt material may get hot during the melting process, so handle with caution.
  • Add essential oils and colorants: When the wax melt material is completely melted, you can add essential oils and colorants. The amount added can be adjusted according to your preference and needs. Then, mix these materials evenly.
  • Pour into the silicone mold: Slowly pour the mixed wax melt material into the silicone mold. To prevent air bubbles from affecting the final effect, you can gently tap the mold to make the air bubbles rise and burst.
  • Cooling and solidification: Place the silicone mold filled with wax melt material in a stable, cool place and wait for it to cool and solidify naturally. The cooling and solidification time will vary depending on the type of material the wax is melted from and the size of the mold.
  • Remove the wax melt: Once the wax melt material has completely cooled and solidified, you can remove the wax melt from the silicone mold. Due to the flexibility of the silicone mold, you can gently twist the mold to melt the wax and release it.

Silicone Mold Buying Guide

Mold quality: The quality of the mold directly affects the quality of the final product. Therefore, you need to choose a silicone mold with reliable quality. You can judge the quality of the mold by looking at the product's detailed description, user reviews and other information.

Price of Mold: Price is a factor that needs to be considered when purchasing any product. You need to choose a silicone mold based on your budget. At the same time, pay attention to comparing prices from different suppliers and products to ensure that you can buy a cost-effective silicone mold.

Mold design: The design of the silicone mold should meet your needs. For example, if the product you need to make has a special shape or size, then you will need to choose a silicone mold designed accordingly.

Supplier Reputation: Choosing a reputable supplier is very important. You can judge the credibility of a supplier by looking at information such as its reviews, historical transaction records, and reviews on social media.

Mold maintenance and cleaning: To ensure the durability and performance of the mold, regular maintenance and cleaning are required. Molds can be cleaned using mild detergent and a soft cloth, and then allowed to dry naturally in a cool place.

Silicone mold maintenance and cleaning

Maintenance and cleaning of silicone molds is very important. Here are some key steps:

  • Cleaning: Please clean the silicone mold in time after each use. You can clean the mold using mild detergent and a soft cloth, then let it dry naturally in a cool place.
  • Avoid scratches: Do not use corrosive cleaners or foam for cleaning. Never use knives or other sharp instruments on the silicone mold to avoid scratching the mold.
  • Prevent deformation: Avoid the accumulation of heavy objects or twists and turns, which can easily lead to the deformation of silicone products.
  • Prevent burning: Never allow silicone molds to come into direct contact with open flames.
  • Prevent dust absorption: Due to static electricity, silicone molds can easily absorb dust. When not in use for a long time, it is best to place them in a carton in a cool place.
  • Special cleaning agent: There are also cleaning agents specially made for silicone molds on the market, which save time, labor, efficiency, cleanness, and low cost.

Other uses for silicone molds

Silicone molds are widely used and are not limited to wax melting:

Crafts production: Silicone molds are often used to make various crafts, such as sculptures, decorations, etc. Due to the high precision and easy release of silicone molds, it is an ideal choice for handicraft production.

Food production: Silicone molds are also widely used in food production, such as baking, chocolate making, candy making, etc. Food-grade silicone molds are non-toxic and odorless and can be used safely.

Resin art production: Silicone molds are also widely used in the production of resin art, such as resin jewelry, resin decorations, etc.

Soap and Candle Making: Silicone molds are commonly used to make soaps and candles of various shapes and sizes.

Ice tray making: Silicone molds can also be used to make ice trays. Due to the low-temperature resistance of silicone, it is an ideal choice for making ice trays.

Ceramic product production: Silicone molds are also used in the production of ceramic products, such as ceramic cups, ceramic bowls, etc.
