All you need to do to work with this medium is melt and pour. The excitement is in the embellishing: tinting, scenting, or imbedding something surprising in the gel. Make a Christmas snow globe, wedding and birthday gifts, even glow-in-the-dark candles.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gel, a transparent, oil-based, gelatin-like substance, is the newest medium for candle making. It burns longer than wax and makes a clear or bubbly candle in a glass container. The projects in this book all use common glass containers such as drinking glasses or fishbowls with decorative objects embedded to give interest. For instance, insect-repellent candles have plastic bugs, a fishbowl candle has a ceramic shark, and bubbly candles can be made in champagne glasses. Public libraries already having conventional candle-making books will want to add this for gel crafters. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
