Caption: Candle flame. A candle consists of a vertical cylinder of wax, such as tallow or paraffin wax, with a central fibrous wick. A flame applied to the end of the wick produces a luminous flame which melts the wax which is then used to fuel the flame. The wick is treated with a substance such as alum so that it carbonises but does not rapidly burn out.
