This is a “must have” piece of kit for every candle-maker because you simply cannot make a candle without using a thermometer. This Candy Thermometer is perfect for the hobbyist and features a glass mercury thermometer with a metal scale for accurate readings. Scale measures in both Fahrenheit and Celsius and begins at 40/100 degrees and also features a handy metal clip for attaching the thermometer to the side of a jug or pot.
Place your thermometer into liquid wax an wait until the mercury (the red line in the center of the thermometer) stops rising, this will indicate the approximate temperature of the wax.
When heating wax the glass thermometer can steam up making it difficult to read. Use a permanent marker to draw a line on the thermometer marking the target temperature
