I confess that I don’t make candles.
It’s not that I dislike them or that I have no interest. In fact, I’m more and more tempted all of the time to give it a try, but it seems overwhelming to learn everything. I would need to know which wax to use, how to choose the proper wicks and wick size, and then I would have to test each type and scent.
If you were my teacher, how would you guide me? Is there a certain book you’d point me to? A website? Would you suggest one type of candle that is “newbie friendly?”
How did you start out? Did you dive right in, learning by trial-and-error, or did you have a mentor guiding you along?
