Candles are irresistible, but the immense creative potential for using and displaying them is often unrealized.

Section two, Candle Making, is a comprehensive guide to the highly rewarding and inexpensive craft of making candles. The first projects demonstrate the basic techniques such as dipping, coloring, molding, rolling and scenting candles.
