Candlemaker  GC

Historical background

The Candlemaker was a specialist with many talents. Though making candles was (and still is) a relatively easy project, the craftsman also had to have a knowledge of the bees that provided him with the substance to complete his work.
Once the wax was made a wick constructed of cord or twine was soaked in an oil-based soltuion, inserted into the center of the wax mold and then the candle was either pressed or shaped by hand. Candles provided illumination and were also necessary for church ceremonies.
It's believed to have been in the 11th Century when a Candlemaker by the name of Graham Overhill invented a candle with twelve markings (lines) on it. When lit at the top of the hour, the candle would burn from line to line at the rate of one hour each. Thus Overhill's candle served as a clock as well.
Though specific skills were required, candlemaking was an easy craft and it was never known to provide more than a modest income.

How does it work?

Honey is harvested from Beehives by clicking on them. Old beehives produce wax. A standard roll determines if you find anything. Beehives have a cooldown time.

You can also make candles from wax with the candle pot.
