Making carved candlesToday I will introduce you to the next important step of creating carved candles. It is preparation of the core of candle.

First off all it is important the quality of the paraffin wax which I am using. It is ALWAYS best quality, deep refined and clean paraffin without any additional smell and which does not smoke while burning.

Next important ingredient which shall be added to the core of candle is stearic acid. It gives the necessary hardness of the core of the candle.

Now the wick! No candle without a wick. I use only 100% cotton wicks braided of three different yarns.
