Making Candles

Ken has bees here.  He is most concerned with having a healthy hive to help with pollination of our crops.  Honey bees also make two useful things for us:honey and beeswax

 

 

 

Ken has been saving wax to make candles.  I got him some molds and wicks a while back.  While cleaning, Ken came across his beeswax stash and decided to make candles.

He melts the wax in a pan of water

 

 

He pours hot wax into the molds.

 

 

 

 

 

He frees up those candles, trims the wicks

 

 

 

 

 

and sets wicks for the next pour.

 

 

 

 

 

Here are the first of his candles.  Now he has a box of them!
