I need help finding instructions on turning candles.

I've been looking everywhere for details on what kind of tools and wax to use. Anyone know any good sites or instructables?

Can you give us an example of a turned candle??? Candles are usually molded or sculpted.

. It's a new one on me. A quick Google turns up lots of turned candle stands, turned candle holders, &, but nothing on turned wax candles. As many different types of wax as there are, there should be something that is "latheable."

I assume you mean turning = on a lathe...

I've never heard of candles being turned on a lathe - woodworking tools should work. How to attach to the wax to the end would be...difficult I imagine, but not impossible.
