Publisher Comments:

Candles are perfect for creating atmosphere, from providing soft, scented lighting for a romantic occasion to conjuring up a festive outdoor party mood using colorful garden flares. Now, making candles at home is easier, cheaper and more fun than ever.

Candle Making, from the popular Step-by-Step Crafts series, makes this crafting craze accessible to anyone. Basic techniques are fully explained in the Getting Started section, together with information on materials and creating your own designs. Sixteen specially created projects show a selection of effects using different waxes, such as beeswax and applique wax, as well as various techniques, such as stenciling, layering, frosting and embedding. Projects include tapers, floating flowers, oriental appliques, garden flares and more. Within each project, important details are shown in magnificent close-up photos and the accompanying instructions take you through the process step-by-step. Interspersed throughout the book, special gallery pages illustrate variations on the techniques explored in the projects.

This book is wonderfully accessible and easy to follow, allowing all levels of readers to create a range of stunning candles for the home. Once the basics are understood, the imagination begins


Large step-by-step photos with added close-up shots of detailed techniques.-- All you need to know about materials and techniques.
