Can i use normal string or is it not the same??
Cool! I'm going to do this sometime!
How would you do the wire in it? I didnt really understand...
Will any glass container do or does it have to be special hardened glass ?
Any glass should work fine
This works amazingly! Thanks!
Can you braid the twine? It would be easier to braid the wick around wire (if you are using wire). Also I've seen just your regular 3 strand braid and a square braid type of wick.. Anyone know how to square braid? How many strands? Also, if you are braiding at all, does anyone know how much longer to cut the strings so after braiding, it'll be close to the size you want? Thanks! Wild Whippet Woman BTW LOVE THIS SITE!!!!
