Davy's Tallow Candles

Davy managed to get some good grade tallow and he decided to have an impromptu candle making session

Melting down the tallow ready to use

Quick wick made from flax and set in the melted tallow

and a Kudlik type lamp made from a scallop shell

and both worked very well

but this one was definitely my favourite!


  1. Really nice, bet you are looking forwards to the next power cut.

  2. Very nice. I have made candles several times but no tallow candles yet.

  3. The scallop shell is my favorite, too! So pretty and functional at the same time.
