Gel Candles

Updated on March 18, 2016

Compelling Gel Candles

Gel candles have become one of the most popular candles, and there's no doubt the unique look of the 3D effect is the primary driver of that interest. The finished products are extraordinary to look at as you can see from those pictured below..

They are also among the most popular of homemade candles, as they're a lot of fun to work with, and again, the finished product, when done right, looks like a work of art, not only a candle. In other words, there's a lot of personal satisfaction from the person creating it.

One of the particular elements that make it so compelling is the transparent gel used to make the candles. Not only does it look good when it's just sitting there, but light up the candle and it gives off a beautiful glow.

Add to that the variety of things that can make the gel candle scenery look great, like glitter, miniature pieces, and numerous other parts, and you get the whole picture of what makes gel candles such an increasingly popular candle.

Ocean Gel Candles

This particular grouping of gel candles are a good teaching tool. First of all, as you can see, you can have gel candles in a variety of size holders, making them unique and very different.

But with the ocean themes below, it shows one of the strengths and weaknesses of making gel candles, and that is the bubbles that come with the art form. Now with ocean and water-themed scenery, it works great. It enhances the work as you can see below. Anything that bubbles, even like the look of beer, will work. Most of the bubbles come from the temperature when poured, so the number of bubbles respond accordingly. This can easily be changed by re-pouring the gel.

Yet this is why you see so many ocean or water themes with gel candles, as they are the easiest to make, looking fantastic as well.
