Not recommended to use candle wax, I'm told, though I don't know why. Some added ingredient.


TK, Any insights into what kind of candle wax? There are at least parafin and bees wax candles.

Patrick, I bought a box of paraffin wax sticks at my local Safeway grocery store. it comes in rectangular blocks four to a box for a buck or so. It's very soft and used for covering the tops of jars of home made jam. It doesn't have chemicals that candle wax has to burn effectively.

I use car wax for the shells. The brand I use is Zymol.
