Before you start
Make sure the temperature of the room in which you are working is over 20 degrees Celsius (this allows the wax to be soft enough to roll easily without breaking). If the temperature is lower use a hair dryer to heat the wax slightly first.
Place one sheet of beeswax on a hard protected surface. Measure halfway along the longest side and use a straight edge to cut the sheet in half with a knife.
Carefully roll the wick inside the beeswax along the 200mm edge, and at the end of the roll press down the edge. The finished candle will fit into a standard candle holder.
Place one sheet of bees wax on a hard protected surface and cut, using a straight edge, diagonally across from one comer to the other.
Roll the candle wick up inside the bees wax as follows
Giant Candles & Thicker Candles
It is a simple task to align an additional sheet of bees wax to the end of the sheet you are rolling. Continue rolling from one sheet to the next until your candle is the required size. The coloured beeswax sheets may also be included for an interesting effect and sheets may be cut in half lengthwise or on a taper for other effects.
