This is what you need according to the list I found in with them. I do have some wax leftover so I may have purchased too much. I don't remember.
For 30 candles:
- 4 sheets of black bees wax
- 8 sheets of white bees wax
- 1 sheet cream
- 1 sheet light green (cucumber)
- 1 sheet red
- 1 sheet pink
- some 20/0 wick
You will also need a hair dryer and a ruler.
- Working on a cutting board first cut the green, red, cream and pink into strips that are about 2" high. Then cut these into pieces that are about 4" long. Starting with the shorter edge roll them up tightly into sticks. If the wax is hard to work with gently heat it with the hair dryer to make it more pliable. Not too much though.You decide if these are thick enough or if you want them a little bigger.
- Lay two different coloured logs down side by side and gently squeeze them together. Lay a piece of wick that has been cut a 1/2 inch longer than the length of the rolled pieces. Take the other two rolled pieces and firmly lay them over the wick. Gently squeeze and compress the four rolled filling pieces around the wick trying to maintain a generally round shape.
- Take the white wax and cut it into strips that are the same height as the filling and about 8 inches long. These will be left at 8 inches for now. Starting at one end roll up the filling in the white wax until it has enough "rice" around the fillings. You decide how much/thick. Looking back at this photo I didn't use enough white wax/rice
- Cut the black wax into strips that are the same height as the fillings and then roll this around the white wax rice.
- Make sure you are rolling very, very tightly. You can then roll it back and forth between your palms to round it out more. The wax is very cooperative.
- If the black is looking a little pale you can heat it with the hair dryer until that blush disappears. You can also wipe it with some rubbing alcohol to get rid of it.
