Beeswax taper candles - 1st go!


Recommended Posts

I have made beeswax votives and tealights before but never made taper candles.

I watched a few youtube videos on how to make them and I think I did a really good job.

I would love your opinion how how they look.

Mind you I have not cut the bottom off yet.

I used a brass weight to keep the wicks straight and use a chicken squers to attach the wicks too.

Yes, burnt one last night. Worked perfectly. Maybe it was just me but light was brighter then soy wax for some reason.

The wick did crackle a little bit to start with, never seen that before.

I think I have to keep the wicks in the wax for 30 seconds the first time is goes in. I only dipped it for 5 seconds the first time.
