I'm not st.clair, but I'll take a stab at your question. I know of 2 ways to make good firestarters from wax. The easiest is to melt the wax in a container that will give an inch or so depth of wax. Roll up some newspaper into tubes, tie the newspaper with string every couple inches, then cut between the strings. holding the string dip into the hot wax. great firestarters work in almost any weather.
The second way I know of that's good also is to use old cardboard egg cartons. Melt your wax down, mix in some saw dust, pour into the egg carton, let set up and then cut apart each little egg cup.
