How Do I Get Started in Candle Making?
Our answer to this question is different than most because before
we can make recommendations, the questioner needs to answer some
things on their own and do some general homework first. We suggest
you do the following first:
1. Decide what type of candle you would like to
make. For example, waxes used in pillars are different than waxes
used in container
fills. This also applies to the type of wick that will be needed,
2. Decide if this will be a hobby or a business.
The quantities needed will vary greatly depending on your plans.
Determine where you will make your candles. If you decide that
the place will be your kitchen, make sure you can properly protect
the area because you will spill and drip wax.
4. Purchase a book
that describes in detail all the safety rules needed in order to
make a candle safely.
