Bravit Candle Answered

Has anyone seen those Bravit Candles?

I've thought about instead of buying some I'd like to make my own (I could also customize the path of the wick then). Any ideas about the best way to make something like these? I'm thinking fix the wick then pour in a layer of wax,say an inch or two, then cool it. Wait for it to solidify (or mostly) then move the direction of the wick and pour in another layer of wax, wait for it to cool and repeat.
Any other thoughts?

You could lay a slab, let it set hard, then carve out the design to hold the wicks with e.g. a screwdriver. Add the wicks into the channels, then pour the other half.

I'd be inclined to make them flat - pour out a half-thickness layer of wax into a wide flat tray, let it almost set, lay out wax-soaked wicks in the pattern you desire, pressing them gently into the soft wax (so they don't float away), then pouring the remaining wax on top.
