                         Commercial wicks
                         String can be used or
                         wicks from old candles
                         Old candles -- melted down
                         Old crayon for color
                         Scents and wax colors can be purchased at
                         Molds - or containers
 Beeswax can be cut with a knife if the knife is warmed first.  Wrap desired amo
 unt around wicks to form long tapers or cone shaped candles.
  To melt the paraffin you'll need a double boiler and be real careful about how
  hot you get it as it is volatile. Old candles can be melted down in the same m
 anner and crayon pieces added for desired color.
  Yogurt or butter tubs will make good molds for your candles or pour melted wax
  over crushed ice in a square milk carton and add glitter - wow!  Or you can di
 p the wicks repeatedly into melted wax in double boiler and let harden between 
 dippings for tapers.
