Instructables
Too much darkness around? This Instructable will show you how to build a eco-friendly dark sucker (A.K.A., a candle, flashlight, fire, pretty much anything that sucks darkness and brings light).
This Instructable is eco-friendly because it is made of the wax on those miniature cheese rolls!
If you want to see a video, it is on the last step.

Step 5: Making the candle

First, you take the wax and flatten it out, about one and a half inch tall by 2 inches wide.
Next, put the wick in as shown in picture 2.
Roll the wax around the wick (picture 3).

Step 6: Videos!

The first video is of the candles burning, while the second shows how to make the candle.
they may take a while to load, but they will load eventually.
If you have any questions, feel free to comment.

I thought this might be made out of ear-wax...(dissapointed) I've done this, tends to create a bit of a cheesy smell, but what else do you do with the wax? And I've got 1 pound ball of the stuff somewhere... L
The wax is good and pliable, like modelling clay - anything you can make out of it can be transformed into metal by lost wax casting (I just put up an ible on lost wax casting using a form made from cheese wax)

I have the materials... - thanks for pointing me to your I'ble.

babybel light ? i never known about the existence of some babybel light, i know the classic red, the classic red ( big size), the yellow ( with edam or gouda) the green ( with goat cheese) but light ..... just to be more eco-friendly, is it possible to make a thread with our own hairs ?
Have you ever smelled burning human hair?! Not nice! I doubt you'd want a candle out of it
It burns to fast anyway. You could use hemp though.

Thanks for sharing. I really like this idea. Note for safety: Be careful that you hands are clean or the candle might make a big fire. Also I'm thinking we can put the wax in a tealight candle container.

there are pictures of the babybel light in the first and last steps. I've never heard of it either before I did this Instructable as for the hair, I think I might give it a try, but it might hurt a more painless way might be using the hair that gets stuck on the hair brush

you smell cheese when you burn your candles? I don't while burning mine.... it might be a different type of cheese (I used the light version) I added some cinnamon to one of my candles, but you could not smell it. I will post some more ideas for scented candles if I get any.....
