For the base of the candle, Batal Japua used narrow cotton medical bandages. They were to be twisted into long threads. In the old days, this was a more difficult task. This required cotton, which was specially grown.
The resulting long strands are dipped into the melted wax. After the first time, the thread turns out to be a little rough, so it must be sanded with a cloth. The workpiece must be dipped into the melted wax again in order to obtain a cord candle that is already round, the same along the entire length and thickness.
In the center of a large candle there is a wooden rod on which the entire structure is wound. In some cases, when the candle is very large, the rod is made of cardboard paper, which burns along with the candle.
Ashamaka used to be placed on a stand, which was made separately and made of wood. The wooden stand consisted of three legs and was made by men. At the same time, an elderly "pure" woman had the prerogative of weaving the candle itself.
