    I'd seen one of these made on YouTube, and when it was lit it didn't burn past the wax. Is crayon wax suitable for candles, or is this more decorative than practical?

    nice!but iv watched other tutorials and they said that a hole forms in the middle,and that you have to add more wax but using a microwave was smart!

    Thank you! Maybe it was the type of wax or wick they used, but mine didn't make a hole in the center.

    Hi! You can use 1 crayon, but it won't have the color-block effect from the tutorial.
