Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Is there anyone who doesn't enjoy the soft, flickering glow of candlelight? Or the fanciful forms that contemporary candles now take — spheres, cubes, cylinders, abstract shapes, people, animals, plants! The only thing you probably don't like is the high prices that gift shops charge for decorative candles. But you can do something about it — you can make these attractive candles yourself.

This book shows you how easy it is to make candles of all kinds: block, layer, and mottled candles; chunk, flower fantasy, crushed ice, hurricane, abstract, cut-out, and glow-through candles; sand and aluminum foil candles; hand-formed and taper candles; applique candles; water candles; and painted and whipped-wax candles. Eighty-two illustrations depict important points, and the easy-to-understand instructions not only guide you every step of the way but also foresee possible problems and tell you how to avoid them or how to deal with them.

The author, a candle manufacturer for many years, has packed this book with a wealth of information and technical knowledge on molds, wicks, dyes, waxes, and additives. He has even included a trouble-shooting guide, explaining the reasons for typical candle imperfections (so you don't make the same mistake twice), and a helpful glossary.

Experienced candle crafters are sure to find ideas and projects that they can use, but beginners will appreciate this book the most. Candle making is a colorful and enjoyable craft that doesn't require a large investment in money or time. If you can boil water, you can make candles. Once you have mastered the basic techniques, you can easily make the most complicated-looking candle in this book.

Synopsis:
