    Default Candle tutorial #4: Melting Wax

    Ok now this is very important Do NOT do this with small children underfoot!

    I always start melting my wax and do other things while that happens. Cut the wax into pieces. Mine are usually about 2 inches by 3 or so.... . I fill the can up, put water in the pan around the can - being very careful not to get water in the wax. About 1/2 way up to the top of the pan is enough water. I turn the burner up all the way. When the wax starts to melt you can add more wax to the can, but only a little at a time b/c you don't want the can too full. I always try to leave about 1/2 inch at the top.
