Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
" In this comprehensive guide, you'll discover the fundamentals of making all manner of candles…" - Sacramento Bee

"There is more wick information alone than most of us will ever need." - Sacramento Bee

Library Journal
Both these books cover essentially the same ground and are good basic guides for making candles. They deal with waxes, wicks, molds, scents, and a variety of decorating techniques. Oppenheimer's book has a more extensive text with line drawings, while Coney's is completely illustrated with color photographs. Both have more information on candle-making than Gloria Nicol's The New Candle Book (LJ 11/1/95), a guide that emphasizes candle display. These are both good basic books for the library craft collection.
