Make /an initial wad for varnishing/a wad for initial varnishing/ by rolling up a good-sized tuft of cotton or by folding up a piece of knitted wool. Pour some /fine alcohol/pure alcohol/ into the middle so as to form a nest and wrap the lot up/it all up/in a piece of old cotton.

Muñequilla does mean dolly and mecha does mean wick, but these meanings are not appropriate to this context.
