I cut out the wax of a new outdoor candle*. I placed my wooden layered letters into the circular tin, melted the wax I had cut out and poured it back into the tin, placing the wick just above the word.
*These outdoor candles are commonly found outside stores, restaurants and venues on the ground outside their respective entrances. I tried to work with materials that were commonly found in the urban environment, especially on the ground, around the city of Gothenburg.
