Step 4: Setting the wick

  Patience is key in this step because it will normally take 7 minutes to set this wax. stick the wick in the middle of the setting wax. I took a pair of pliers and placed them over the tin so that it would hold it in place. After 7-12 minutes it should be set. now light it up and test it up. TY!
