In part three of her series Sophie makes a rolled beeswax staircase candle. You can also use these sheets of wax to create "fat boy" candles or skinny candles.
Cut your sheet of beeswax in half lengthwise. Then cut that piece in half at the 8 inch mark.
Measure two inches in from one edge and make a mark with your X-acto knife.
Measure 1.5 inches up from the bottom of the sheet, opposite of the mark you just made.
Using your ruler make a diagonal cut between the two marks, creating a triangle.
Lay a piece of wick at the wide end of the of sheet. Leave about an inch of extra wick on one end.
We will embeliish with a single strip of another color wax. Cut a strip of wax one honeycomb wide.
Soften the strip lightly with the hairdryer.
Lay your strip along the cut end of your wax sheet.
Turn the sheet over and begin rolling the candle in the same manner in which we have done the other rolled candles.
Keep rolling making certain to keep the candle tight as you roll.
Once you have finished rolling use the hairdryer to warm the candle a bit more and attach an additional strip of wax.
Trim off any extra.
