Hand torches: (Photos will appear in the following days)
Fix a torch wick of about 25 cm (the exact length depends on the dipping tank) to a wooden bar. Therefore you’ll need some wire. Make sure that it is fixed very well! If not, the burning
part of the torch can fall down without any control which can easily end in a fire.
Now it has to be dipped head first into wax until your torch has reached the wished size, just as if you dip candles. Remember to let it cool in between.
Before you can light your torch, you have to free the wick at the upper end that is now covered by some wax. You can easily do it with a knife or something alike.
