Using a propane torch or a butane lighter, heat up one tip of the P-Tex candle over a metal pan.

Use caution not to burn yourself - the flame is extremely hot.

Wait until the candle is flaming, which may take a couple of seconds.

Black carbon flakes will appear in the burning tip. DO NOT let them get into your base or the P-Tex will bond poorly.

Let the candle drip onto a metal pan and roll the molton tip around until the candle is carbon free.
