Goldrick Beeswax Candle Making Kit
8 Beeswax Sheets
Cotton String Bag
Soften the beeswax a little by working in a warm room or place the beeswax sheets in the sun for a few minutes.
Cut the beeswax sheets in to the desired height of your candle, and then cut wicks about 1 cm longer than the height of the candle.
Using the flat of your hands, firmly roll up the candle.
Tapered or spiral candles are made by cutting a rectangular sheet of wax on the diagonal to make two triangular shaped sheets. Edges can be decorated, flared or left flat.
Icons such as stars, moons, flowers etc. can be cut out and pressed onto the candles.
If you prefer a thicker candle, start the process again with a second sheet of wax. The best part about rolling your own candles is that you can make them any size you’d like: short and squat or long and lean. When you’re finished rolling, gently press the edge of the wax sheet to the candle using your fingertips.
