making the candle

I'm having trouble making the candle for the final night. I've mixed the ingredients but it won't let me put the wick or the mixture into the mold. Can anyone help?

I had the same problem. I figured out you have to put the wick in first then pour the liquid. Hope this helps.

You just pick up the wick & click on the box and it'll be put in there when you do that.

Where did you find the blood and the melting pot? I can't seem to locate that scene, and it's apparently the only thing I'm missing!

The blood you get at the cabin. To the right is a memorial to Meril with her picture and when you arrange the candles correctly, she cries blood and you need a tube to put it in. I forgot where you get the melting pot. If I remember, I'll post.

Edit: The tube for the blood is also at the cabin in the box inside. The Elder gives you the melting pot at the House on the Hill after you give him the Evidence against Gavin. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your reply on the blood. I went back and reread the guide and finally figured it out. Now I can't get the wick in the candle box! I'm sure its very fine tuned as to where on the box to click! I haven't found that spot yet!

You're welcome. I already beat it a 2nd time for both main and bonus. Got all achievements. What I remember about the purification candle is you click on the candle box (should have a magnifying glass on it), put what you need on the screen according to the guide (might help if you put it on the screen in the order it says), and follow the directions on that paper on what to put in first. I know you put the ingredients in the bowl, mash it, the blood goes in after the dry ingredients, then you put the wick in, then pour the mixture. All I remember is picking up the wick and clicking on the candle box. The first time I did have trouble. I tried putting the mixture in before the wick. The directions says to put the wick in before the mixture. Hope this helps.

I can do everything except get the wick in the box to make the candle! Where on the box do you click? I have already mixed the ingredients up!

I have tried a hundred times - have mixed all the ingredients as per instructions
I cannot make the wick go in however much I try. And I cannot pour the ingredients first then add the wick I tried that. Hellllppp!!

Is there a particular place on the candle mould to click perhaps

Gnan, maybe you can get out of it the way I did. I looked around for other areas to play and found some that then ended the game and I'm now in the bonus chapter. I never did the wick in the mold to make the candle! For whatever reason the game just skipped that area. It was still in my inventory and yet I was able to finish the game and start the bonus chapter!? I don't get it, but I'll take it!

The bottle will eventually lead you to a vial to get the blood. Keep looking around, you'll find it!

Walk down from where you got the bottle. You'll find a H0S & an area where you use that particular bottle, then return to the house/grave area.

I've clicked all around & over the candle making kit trying to put the wick in but haven't found the 'right' spot yet I'll try again & if it doesn't work, I'll try the old exit & restart game trick

After starting the game completely over, I realized what I did wrong. You have to make sure you put the wick up with the rest of the candle making things. I was trying to take it right out of the inventory box and place it. When I had it with everything else it went into the mold with no problem. Hope this helps

I had the same problem with the wick, and tried several times. Like someone else wrote, I closed the candle down and clicked on the woman and it worked. I still had unfinished candle in my inventory.

Mrs. Skippy is correct, if you did not put the wick up with the other ingredients you will not be able to place the wick. I had to start all over, as well. Once I had all of the ingredients the wick popped into place.
