Grimdog I've used a propane torch with a metal shield on it and then melt the p-tex on the metal shield.

earlvb You need to burn it close to the base so that it has a clean blue flame. Start it on a metal scraper or something thin so that you can move it to the scratch w/o lifting it up. If you do move it away from the base you will get a dirty flame.

took your advice and burned through all but about 1/2" of a candle today. Never did it stop dripping carbon. So any other ideas?

Question about PTex Candles

I was wondering if those with experience have a technique to melting a P-tex candle. I have a white base and when I melt my white candle with a lighter it burns the candle and turns it a brown color. How do you melt the candle while keeping it white?
