A book that goes through the basics quite quickly and then has some emphasis on decorating candles and candle-holders to taste. Full of ideas how to modify and create new looks.

Chapter one details the equipment and supplies necessary and while it suggests some of the professional equipment it does detail how you can substitute when beginning.
Chapter two details ingredients and how they're used.
Chapter three talks about safety and clean-up
Chapter four is about making candles
Chapter five is about decorating candles
Chapter six about decorating finished candles whether purchased or self-made
Chapter seven is about embelishing candle holders and containers. The techniques are pretty simple and pretty detailed.
Chapter eight is about display and using candles to complement.

Overall not a bad book. I would recommend it to people looking to get into candlemaking. ( )

Many beautiful color illustrations, photographs for many projects. These are not your typical projects of just pouring wax into a mold. They are very detailed in how becoming they are to enjoy! ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0806977876, Paperback)

Creating your own candles allows for a wide range of creative expression. Molding, dipping, rolling, carving, twisting, scenting, decorating-all these methods yield unique handmade candles, and all are nicely explored in this well-illustrated guide. A thorough introduction to the various techniques sets the stage for dozens of projects, from molded shapes concealing hidden treasures or stately pillars collaged with found objects to elegantly decoupaged tapers or whimsical candles mimicking ice cream sundaes. Many projects are devoted to decorating candle containers, so in addition to showing beginners how to delve into the field and providing more experienced crafters with new ideas, the book also offers great designs for unleashing your creativity on the candleholder, even if you never make a single candle from scratch. --Amy Handy
