Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
With candlemaking supplies widely available in craft shops, many people like to try making their own. This guide for beginners with little or no experience contains basic information about materials, tools, and techniques in the question-and-answer format typical of the publisher's other "first time" books. Projects include the currently trendy multiwick candles and candles with embedded materials. This is a useful addition to general crafts collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Okay for basic information

    It tells of many different kinds of candles to make but I thought that it jumped around a little too much. It has all of the basics and I suppose that most of it is the same for all candles. I thought the author kind of talked down to everyone instead of inspiring them to try.
