Step 2: Making a Paper Wick Tallow Candle
You can make a tallow or cooking grease candle very easily with the stiff paper wicking described earlier.
1. Select a jar, wide mouth jars are easiest to light.
2. Make a spiral from some wire, a foot of unwound ground wire works very well.
3. Pinch the wire around the wicking so the wick stands up. That way the wick will stand straight even if the grease melts. Where as, regular candle wicking would just fall into the candle.
4. Melt and pour in your grease, wait for the grease to solidify, then your candle is ready to use...
