    You didn't go into the step (which they seem to make a big thing about in all the candle-making books I used to read) about pouring a little extra hot wax into the top as the main candle cools — and contracts, otherwise leaving a huge depression on the topside rather than a nice-looking flat surface.

    I have bought already made wicks like the one in this video and do everything how I am supposed to, but then when I go to burn the wick it burns until it gets to the candle and then the flame dims very low and goes out. I have even cut my wicks longer?? Help, what am I doing wrong? Where is a good place to go to get a good quality fragrance that actually smells through out the whole burning process?

    Never melt wax directly on a burner. Use a double boiler so the wax never gets hotter then the temperature of boiling water. Melting directly on the burner can cause the wax temperature to exceed what is safe and release flammable vapors that can ignite.

    “How to Become a Master Candle Maker For Fun or Profit…”
    Soon, you'll finally learn how to make wonderful smelling candles that put those expensive candles sold in stores to shame. It's easy, fun and very rewarding!

    Dear Candlemaker,

    If you've ever had a deep desire to make beautiful, scent-filled candles that make any room welcoming and maybe given as special gifts…

    Or better yet, if you want to create a full-time income from your candles, then this is the most important information you'll ever read. 

    But first, let me ask you:  

    “Do you envy those who can Make All Types of Candles, Effortlessly?”

    They come to craft shows with a basket filled with unique, colorful, and wonderfully smelling candles. The type of candles that make those expensive candles that you bought for your mother's birthday look amateurish!

    They display their crafts in perfect arrangements, as a mile-long line forms around their table. 

    Then, when you catch another glimpse of the table cloth, the array of sweet-smelling gifts vanishes as fast as it had collected above the table cloth. The crafter folds her table cloth, closes her money bank, and then quickly walks out the door early. 

    This is the same person who, when you visit her house, you are hypnotized by the welcoming aura as soon as you step on her front walkway.

    You can't help but think, "How could anyone resist taking a few steps toward her door?."

    “Candle Making as a Hobby or Money-Making Business…”

    If you knew me, you'd be surprised to know that a friend of mine told me that the very situation above was how she felt about me.

    What she doesn't know is that I wasn't born with natural talents in candle making. My craft actually started as a hobby.

    My interest in being the best candle maker I could be, lead me to take many classes to learn how to perfect my art. I also read books and researched everything I could. I discovered that while there was tons of information available, only a tiny bit of it was actually useful.

    I was also fortunate to have the help of many candle makers from whom I learned how to be a master at candle making and how to impress everyone with my great smelling candles.
