Whipping wax is very simple. You'll need a finished candle and some not too
hot wax. This means you need to let the wax cool slightly, enough for a
"skin" to form on the top.
Take a fork and start to whip the wax. Just as if you were whipping scrambled
eggs. As the wax starts to harden, layer the wax onto the candle.
Start from either the top or the bottom, it helps to have two people for this
process. The person holding the candle might want to wear rubber gloves. The
wax is hardening but it is still quite hot. This technique can be used to
make the popular cake candles.
The wax is usually colored to match the core candle that is whipped onto the
candle. When you put the wax onto the candle you can "squeeze" the candle to
tame down the wax, it will give it a slightly smoother finish.
