    Use the kind that dries and be sure to cut around the "mold" before it dries so you can remove it mor easily. Also, I'd use some oil or vaseline to coat the candle before using the clay.

    Thanks everyone for your response. The candle comes from Sweeden and is the face of an old sea captain and pipe. I just love it and want to make a wall sconce from it. the details are amazing and I do not want to lose any of it. I think if I was to use a product that would for a mold, I could burn the wax/candle after drying and have my mold to make my sconce. If anyone knows a way, that would be awesome. Thanks AmAtHome for sharing a link.
