Summary

Summary

Make candles with that personal, imaginative touch. Gorgeous color photographs come together with a complete how-to guide to help you produce any combination of size, shape, color, scent, and style. Experiment with mold, double mold, dipped, rolled, and floating candles, shape them by carving, pinching, and twisting the wax, and add aromatic effects. Decorating techniques include decoupage, embossing, and leafing, while a variety of easily available items such as dried leaves, foil, paint, cork, glitter, and bracelet charms will transform the most ordinary candle into an object of beauty and charm. You'll even learn how to make candleholders and containers from ordinary household items, and individualize store-bought candles. Lavish photographs of gleaming candles in inspiring settings show exactly how to create a romantic evening, a festive holiday atmosphere, or a warm welcome for dinner guests.
