Step 1. Soak a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and thoroughly clean the inside of each plastic container. This will sanitize the containers before you fill it with product.
Step 2. Put a piece of rolled up Scotch tape (this will make it double sided tape) on the bottom of the container. Flip it over and press it down so that it adheres to your working surface. This will keep the container from moving around or blowing away when using the hair dryer.
Step 3. Take the large pliers and grab the end cap on the Jumbo Pencil. Once you have a good grip pull and twist to detach the cap from the pencil. Some come off easily and some you really have to struggle with to pull off. Once you pull the end cap off, throw the cap away.
Step 4. Take your pliers (tongs work well for this purpose too) and grab on to the pencil towards the opening just underneath where the end cap was. Position the it so that the tip of the pencil is facing straight down into the middle of the open container. Your arm may get tired holding the pliers in this position with one hand after awhile so a pillow works well to sit your elbow or arm while holding the pliers straight. Also, wrap a hand towel around the plier handles so that you aren’t directly touching the metal because it will get very, VERY hot when using the blow dryer. You can also use an oven mitt to hold on to the pliers with.
Step 5. While holding the pliers straight with one hand, grab the hair dryer with you other hand and turn on to high heat. Hold the dryer nozzle directly above the top of the pencil (where the opening is) and just hold it while the dryer heats up the pencil. Your arms will probably get tired, but try and keep everything positioned as straight as possible to prevent spills or a mess from happening.
The melted product should slowly start dripping into the container and holding it steady in the middle will prevent it from getting the product on the sides of the container and keep it clean. The product will begin to melt and drip down little by little and then eventually a blob of it will pour out at once. This is generally how you know the product has completely melted out. You can check by turning off the hair dryer and looking through the pencil (or what is now a tube). If you can clearly see from one end to the other with the tube or it is now completely hollow, then you are finished with the melting process and can then dispose of the empty tube.
Step 6. You can pick up the container with the melted product and very lightly drop it and keep repeating until all of the product has settled and the container is evenly filled. Then set aside to dry. This should only take about 20 minutes at the most.
Step 7. Once the product is dry, type in the name of the color on the label maker and print out the custom label. Trim the excess and simply put it on the bottom of the container.
