    this has to be the most expensive and labour intensive candle making i have
    ever seen. I only decided today to take it up and this is the second candle
    wick making video i have seen. Am i missing something? Is it the aesthetic? :)

    Are there no molds for this? I mean…couldn’t you just make a mold? Just
    curious…

    If you’re just trying to fix the string so its stiff, I bet potato starch
    would do it too…

    I am wanting to do candle making (dipped) in Kenya at an orphanage I work
    at each year. We tried it last year, buying paraffin in Nairobi. It was
    very hard to get to wax to melt and it would cool a skin on the top within
    seconds. Also the wax wouldn’t stick to the wicking we brought over with
    us for the project. We found the paraffin from the agricultural extension
    service. Do you have any suggestions for me please.

    Is using salt and borax really necessary? Can’t I just skip straight to
    this step?

    I have started microwaving soy wax to melt it. Works a treat, way faster
