    Hello,

    I've tried to do some carved candles, I used paraffin wax, all good, but when I've start to carved them the wax became pellets in my hand, I couldn't carved them at all, all was broken in my hand. Do I need to use an other type of wax? Can somebody give me an advice?
    Thank's a lot.

    Use a little more stearin in the wax and only carve when they are warm - it helps!!

    You need to use the correct wax - higher melting than standard. Normal wax will not work.
