It¿s easy to make beautiful, scented candles to decorate your home, give as gifts, and illuminate your world. Begin with a look at the few basic materials – a handy purchasing list will ensure you have everything that you need to get you started. An overview of basic techniques shows you how to make moulded, dipped, rolled, and gel candles, and introductory projects enable you to try your hand at the craft. Captivating full-colour photographs showcase more than a dozen projects you can recreate or customise to your liking. Make candles in terracotta pots or seashells. Use découpage, stamps, and stencils. Try a spiral beeswax candle. A double-colour gel candle, a floating candle – even a ‘looks good enough to eat’ chocolate cake candle.
