Summary

Summary

"As the author explains, four elements are key to success --the gel, containers, embedded objects, the wick. Vintage costume jewelry becomes the 3-D treasure in a wide candle. Rocks form the solid surface for a ready-to-light Zen garden. And geometric shapes tinted just the right colors emulate sushi forms--albeit with wicks. Naturally, all 35 projects feature materials, designer credits, step-by-step instructions, and great photographs."-- Booklist.

Booklist Review

Paraffin is passe, at least according to Miller, who has whipped up 35 concoctions of . . . gel? A specialized mineral oil, gel is much more malleable than wax, though it has many of the same good properties. As the author explains, four elements are key to success--the gel, containers, embedded objects, the wick. Vintage costume jewelry becomes the 3-D treasure in a wide candle. Rocks form the solid surface for a ready-to-light Zen garden. And geometric shapes tinted just the right colors emulate sushi forms--albeit with wicks.
