In Candlemaking the Natural Way, soy, palm wax and beeswax are used to create tastefully beautiful and conscientiously eco-friendly projects. Fragrance, colour and wax additives are explored along with a range of basic techniques including dipped, rolled and molded methods.
Beginning crafters in need of a quick and easy gift idea will be just as satisfied as the more advanced candlemaker searching for multi-faceted project inspiration; author Rebecca Ittner's friendly, you-can-too writing style invites both the novice and the aficionado to embrace the world of candlemaking. Not only are the ingredients in this book clean and simple, but they (and the basic candlemaking tools and supplies) are all readily available at standard craft supply stores. This is an affordable, inviting and informative resource as well as an inspiring collection of 31 how-to projects.
"(I) can't recommend the book enough. It's packed with essential information on handcrafting beeswax, soy, and palm candles, including 31 projects to whip up, whether you're hoping to light up your own space or gift to your nearest and dearest." --Ashley English, author of the Homemade Living series
