    A knot in the bottom of the wick dipped in wax and dried then string it
    down the center works well. Cut it off when the candle is almost set.

    Awesome video. I’ve been making beeswax candles for a few years (using
    Townsend materials) and by watching this video today learned some
    techniques that will make my job a LOT easier! Great idea with the slow
    cooker and the wick stringing techniques. :-)

    Love the video, thank you so much for sharing !!! I do have a question for
    you. I noticed you used 2lb block wax, can you use bees wax beads in place
    of the blocks? Not sure if there is a difference in composition or if it is
    just a difference in shapes. Thank so much :)

    Thank you for making this video. I bought this kit from you and love making
    my own beeswax candles for Shabbot. It’s easy and actually fun :)

    Working with candy molds I have poured liquids through a funnel into a
    small opening, even smaller than these. Seems to work nicely. Thanks for
    the video.

  • Coyote Trail says:

    Can melted wax from burned candles be recycled and used again in newly made
    candles? My candles seem to burn down fast. Is there a technique to make
    them last longer? Thanks for the video. I love my kit.

  • Jennifer Kirk says:

    Great video! How do you care for you candle mold after using it?

  • jastownsendandson says:

    Just drop it in – that’s the good part. You don’t have to worry about water
    spoiling the wick.

  • rattlesnake88 says:

    I see you are using a crock pot for heating the wax. Do you just drop the
    wax into the crock pot or do you use another container and water to make a
    double boiler? Thanks

    teehee… Genuine 18 century electrical slow-cooker? :-P (don’t get me
    wrong… loving your videos)

  • ramtharthegreat says:

    I have two of your mold, I love them and make several hundred candles a
    year with them for my rendezvous lanterns. Once the wax has cooled in the
    mold, I allow the molds to freeze (in the freezer in the summer, outside in
    winter). I have never had any crack, and not only will the candles be ready
    to remove from the mold much sooner, but they remove very easily, allowing
    you to omit the spray lubricant. This has always worked great for me, for
    both pure beeswax as well as beeswax/tallow candles.

    I made candles off and on for years and while this made making these
    candles look easy their are a couple of things to know. If you use a Crock
    Pot it now for beeswax candle making only. Candle making is always best
    done outside it is messy. Beeswax is almost impossible to entirely wash
    off, Do Not put the Crock in the dishwasher unless you like beeswax covered
    dishes Many Crock Pots will not get hot enough to melt hard paraffin waxes.
    I use a hot plate and a heavy pot a lid is a good

  • jastownsendandson says:

    Thanks! – I believe most of the beeswax beads are just the same wax in a
    different form factor. They should work fine.

  • craftersuzy says:

    Pure beeswax is too slow burning, it won’t stay alight, it is better to use
    it as an additive to the parraffin wax which burns a lot faster. You can
    experiment with the quantities to get a good mix which you like, if you
    want drippy candles to make a bottle look good then no beeswax, if you want
    a long burning candle which doesnt drip then more beeswax.
