    I am trying to figure out how to make a "top to bottom glow" candle from paraffin wax. Can anyone advise me? Thanks.

    I would guess you need translucent candle wax. Try googling that. Found..

    Great input-thank you all. in response to DaveC, I am trying to duplicate a transluscent, paraffin "top to bottom glow" candle that was made by a company named Bull Frog in Charlavoix, Michigan. They have since gone out of business. To Zoobyshoe I am trying to illuminate with paraffin wax only. I know it can be done because I still have one. CWATTERS is the closest yet (I think) to what I am trying to do. I will order the wax and try over the weekend. I appreciate all your help!
