Hiya all. I'm here to represent you all my next tutorial in 'how to...'-series.

Candles for all, I prefer heretics, but goes with you loyalist-scum too :P.

Tools:
-Green Stuff
-Sculpting Tool
-Cord (e.g. from headphones)
-Rod (e.g. paper clips)

1. Take a piece of cord. The cord will be the body of the candle. And take piece of rod, which needs to be little lengthier than the cord. Insert the rod inside the cord, like in the picture.

2. Drill a hole to the place where you're going to have the candle, and glue the cord piece on its spot.

3. Place some green stuff on top of the candle.

4. Using the scuplting tool, start pulling the gs down the candles body. You can use real candles for referance.

5. Place some gs on base of the candle.

6. Sculpt the drippings. Real candles for better referance.

You can stop in this point if you want, thus creating an extinquished candle. Next steps cover the flame.

7. Place a teardrop shaped gs on the 'candle-snuff'.

8. Gently use the sculpting tool to sculpt 'crevices'. There's no better way to explain this, just go with the flow.

Enjoy :(.
