Project 36: Wax and Wick

September 22, 2011


I had been so concerned about where I would find the wax for my candle project that I completely neglected to source rolls of wick.  So here I am with a decent collection of reclaimed wax, both paraffin and beeswax, and no idea where I’m going to find wick. All I’ve found locally is pre-cut wick for pillars. I had hoped to dip my candles, so that won’t work at all.

Today I’ll melt everything down and maybe filter the bits of old wick and sand out in the hope that I’ll find what I need before the end of the week.

Does anyone have a good source for rolls of wick?
