Minecraft caves and cliffs update is one of the most anticipated updates in Minecraft and is introducing a lot of new features and fantastic creatures.

This version of the game will be one of the most exciting and thrilling versions to play because of the crazy and fun challenges players can foresee and work towards completing. One such feature in caves and cliffs are the candles which are a great source of light in the game and can be lit with steel and flint.聽

Candles are this beautiful feature of Minecraft caves and cliff part 1, which is a fantastic source of light that looks colourful and radiant throughout the game. You can light the candles using a fire charge or a flint and steel at level 3, and this is when they start giving off light. They can easily be stacked to 4 on a square and add up to level 12 of the light source, making it a capped feature.聽

You can鈥檛 obtain these candles on your own in the game. They need to be crafted and dyed, and the way to do that is as follows.

How to Craft a Candle in Minecraft

Crafting is supposedly an easy task to do, and crafting candles isn鈥檛 tough either. The only problem that occurs is when you have to collect the items for crafting candles. The items required for candles are:

  1. A String
  2. A Honeycomb

This honeycomb which is required, needs to be farmed with the help of a bee or beehive. This is done by lighting a fire directly below the beehive to ensure that the bees don鈥檛 get mad at you and start attacking you for taking their honey.

This could be a tricky part, but with patience, you can get the honeycomb quickly. You can then obtain the string once you have obtained the honeycomb. Strings can be taken by killing a spider which isn鈥檛 too hard to do.

How to Dye Candle in Minecraft

The dying process of candles is more accessible than crafting. The things required for dying are:

  1. One candle
  2. One dye

Dying is a simple and straightforward process in Minecraft. You have to take the crafted candle and use one of the colours of the dye out of the 16 available shades. If you want secondary colours, mix this dye with single blooms and place it on the candle.

If you just put down one paint with the candle, you won鈥檛 get any output, and your efforts will go into vain. Thus follow all the steps correctly. One thing which needs to be remembered is that the candles can鈥檛 be redyed. You have to make new ones.

Uses of Candles in Minecraft

There are several uses to a candle in Minecraft. Some of them are:

  1. These are a great source of light and can have a high level.
  2. They can be lit using any flaming projectile.
  3. They can be extinguished with water.
  4. The waterlogged candles won鈥檛 be able to light up again.
  5. If you celebrate a special occasion like a birthday, you can put this candle on top of the cake.
