    Candle Making by Bob Sherman, March 15, 2002

    This review is from: Candlemaking (Paperback)

    Candle Making, by Bob Sherman (A step by step guide from beginner to expert)is a must have book for anyone making or considering to make candles from a first time hobbyist to the experienced candle maker.
    I have read this book three times now, and learned quite a bit more with each reading. Even as a professional candle maker, there were projects and methods I had yet to experiment with. I’ve followed some of the projects in this book, and had EXCELLENT results.
    I can attest to the success anyone can have by following the projects included in this book. There are dozens of projects and the creativity Bob Sherman encourages will make for endless fun filled hours of candle making.
    Everything one needs to know from safety, set up, & workspace, through ingredients, formulas, and full explanations of everything, is here in a fun to read, easy to follow format. There are hundreds of instructional, material, and projects pictures. There is a plethora of charts, tables, and all the necessary formulas and references to guide and teach you.
    Raw materials and all possible ingredients are outlined and explained in detail, with attention paid to the interactions of all things that go into making a well burning, high quality candle. The glossary is exceptionally through and easy to understand. Candle Making, by Bob Sherman, is the ultimate guide. With this book, some experimentation, experience, and just a bit of creativity, you could make candles for a hobby or as a professional. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a creative outlet or just to learn about candle making.

    Best of the bunch, August 20, 2003

    This review is from: Candlemaking (Paperback)

    I’ve been making candles for about 15 years. Every year or so, I check the candle making books to see what’s new. There were many new ones since I checked last and Bob Sherman’s book Candle Making is the only one I bought. It was by far and away the best of the bunch. It has easy to understand instructions on a broad range of candle projects. Mr. Sherman also clearly explains all the elements of candle making as well as the materials used.

    I know some people expect color pictures in a book like this one. However, I appreciate the use of black and white pictures in this book which, undoubtedly, keeps the price very reasonable. I hate to think what this book would cost with color pictures.

    If you buy only one candle making book, make it this one.

    Although this one lacks glossy color photo’s, it has a lot of great and valuable information presented in simple terms. It has a lot of handy conversion charts and wax formulas for various end results. It discusses issues more serious candlemakers will run into that are not mentioned in other books, such as the dreaded wet spots, and suggestions on how to go about side by side wick testing comparisons. My favorite and most reliable reference.
