        Just read the article no making a candle. Makes me want to give it a go. Got loads of ideas I'd like to try. But Clare would kill me if I start yet another craft!! Great article though, really enjoyed reading it.

          Thanks everybody for your comments - word of warning my kitchen isn't usually as clean as the pictures show - generally candle wax and crap everywhere - if you are thinking of taking it up it is mighty messy and you need a lot of space - but if you feel like it - go for it.

          Cheers.

            Hi, a good article - lots of invaluable tips that only someone with loads of experience would know - very kind of you to share. Like Kipper I've already too many crafts on the go (I wish - just not enough time in the day!) so won't actually be trying this one... or perhaps... hmmm!

                      I got a candle making kit when I was younger, it was great, came with three molds, a bag of flaky wax and some colour sticks. I had great fun and my parents still have some of the candles I made. My favourite was the chimney, where I made a red square candle and topped it with some frothy wax for smoke when it was almost set. The only problem was that I was too impatient and my 'smoke' went pink instead of white.

                      I had three molds and I would never wait for them to set properly and ended up with funny shaped warped candles.

                      It's similar now if I glue anything, I can't wait long enough and end up pulling things apart before the glue is dry......

                              always want to learn about candle making

                              i'm always afraid of doing it. not sure if i'll overheat it or not....... does anyone know about making candle using sheets of beewax??? i saw it at the store the other day, it looks simple. they've heart shaped, round shaped..... also, they use it to make sushi-like candles...

                              does anybody know how to do it??
