For this project you will need:
•A jar with a lid
•An old candle’s wax , or any wax you can get your hands on.
• Olive oil
•Double boiler (or an improvised one.)
•Spoon, preferably disposable
Begin by melting enough wax to fill 3/4 of your jar (the jar should have a lid.) Use a double boiler to melt.
When the wax has melted, add in oil. 4 tsp olive oil
3. Get your charcoal, grind it till it turns to dust.
Add this charcoal powder to the wax until it is a saturated black. Once it is satured, stop adding the powder.
Mix well, and pour into a jar. Place the covered jar in the freezer for 20 minutes or until the wax has solidified. Take out and store away from direct heat or sunlight
