  • Paraffin wax bowls look amazing as you can place them in shelf for a beautiful look. You just need paraffin wax and balloons to make them and with a little work you can make gorgeous piece of bowls.

  • What you Need

  • Paraffin wax bars (available on craft stores)
    Crock pot or double broiler

  • Directions

  • Melt your beeswax in a double broiler. You can also cut wax into small pieces for melting. Do not overheat the wax (don't bring it to a boil).

  • Fill some balloons with cold water. Tie the balloon to retain the shape with string knot.
    Once the paraffin has melted start dipping balloon in wax (don't touch the balloon to the bottom!) for a few seconds and lift out. Let the wax harden for a few seconds then dip again.

  • Repeated the process to create the desired thickness of the wax bowl about 20 to 24 dips each.
    Make sure you are dipping to the same line each time.

  • After you've finished dipping your balloon and its hardened a bit, let it rest on a flat surface.

  • After cooling; take your balloon over the sink, carefully popped the water balloon to throw the water.

  • Warm plate or a warm frying pan to create a flat bottom and top edges for your bowl. Set your balloon bottom side carefully onto the pan or plate for a few seconds to make the bottom flat. Then place each bowl upside down on the hot surface to smooth the top edges.

  • Your wonderful Paraffin Wax Bowls are ready.

  • You can put beautiful pressed flowers on the surface of wax bowl and coat with melted wax by brush.

  1. Sadhana, Yes it can be made easily just like the others. The size of bowl depends on size of balloon. For narrow mouth bowl use long shaped balloon and follow the rest of procedure.
