How to use glitter in your wax melts

2 mins read
Following on from our recent post on Mica Powder, we wanted to provide some guidance on another popular product for adding visual appeal to your wax melts, being glitter. We’ve found makers are always keen to add an extra creative flair to their products and glitter is a great way to achieve that. 

One of the biggest differences you’ll notice when purchasing our glitter is that it does not look like traditional glitter. This is because we offer a mineral-based glitter called EcoSparks. This is an earth-friendly alternative to poly glitter and is more stable than conventional Bio Glitter.


We’re proud to advise our glitter is:

 eco-friendly non-abrasive
highly adhesive non-flammable
solvent resistant cruelty-free


You can add glitter to your mould before pouring or add it to your wax as it’s cooling, before pouring. If using glitter mixed in with your wax, be sure to stir it well so the glitter does not settle at the bottom of your wax vessel. 

You don’t need to use a lot of glitter in your melts. When testing your melts, you can add varying amounts of glitter to see how much you need for your desired effect.   

We offer glitter in 12 different colours and a choice of ultrafine and chunky finish giving you plenty of options to choose from. Glitter can be used alongside our Mica Powders and Dyes for a more vibrant result. 

As with all our supplies, we recommend testing in small batches when experimenting with new products, and taking notes as you do so, enabling you to refer back to exactly what you’ve done to see what worked best. 

We’re excited to see how you’re using glitter to enhance your wax melts and invite you to share them with us using #madewithnicandlesupplies on social media.

Important note: our glitter products are not recommended for use in wicked candles as the fine particles can clog the wick and don’t mix well with an open flame. Our dye chips are an excellent choice for adding colour to your candles.
