    I loved this book! It may not be for the true beginner as it doesn’t go into great detail on wick sizes and wax pouring temperatures, but if you have that general knowledge, then this book is what you want. I found project ideas and instructions in this book that I haven’t seen in any other candle books. The instructions are clear and easy to follow along with pictures of the processes–beautiful pictures of the completed candles. There are also some interesting ideas for how to display candles. This book will get your creative juices flowing!

    Many pictures, but some projects and info somewhat outdated. Didn’t dicuss new container blend waxes or specific sizes of wicks needed for various candles. It does give specific instructions for whipped and inclusion candles,which I found interesting. Gives detailed lists of items needed for each project.

    This is an excellent guide to candlemaking. It is packed full with projects on just about every sort of candlemaking, from dipping and rolling to stained glass and whipping. The projects are well layed out, with clear instructions and photos, all very easy to follow. In this respect it is a good book for beginners, however I would also recommend it to more experienced candlemakers who want to try different techniques. There are also dozens of photos of beautiful candles in the gallery that will inspire anyone
