I cut up cotton wool buds and bits of sprue to various sizes, drilled a small hole and super glues florists wire for the wick. I then applied multiple layers of thinned PVA glue for the melted wax
Once glued in place more PVA was added. In total ive added about 5 layers of glue, letting each layer thoroughly dry before adding the next.
I will base coat these whete then shade with thinned down serephin sepea. The wick will be painted black and the very tip dark brown as if its been burnt. Not sure if i will add flames out of green stuff or not yet.
