CANDLES




Candle making is a very ancient form of art.Till date, it has come a long way.Now a days candles have become a very integral part of home decor. Candles have acquired their place in dinning tables, show cases,  mantel piece and what not. Now a days there are numerous varieties of wax that are available in the market to cater to customers requirement.These are also called "CANDLE WAX" and  comes in granules and slab form.

Paraffin wax : This is the most common form of wax used in making pillar candles and floater candles.

Hurricane wax : I personally like this wax very much as it is very transparent kind of wax and is perfect for not only making hurricane lanterns, but also pillar candles with embedements.

Marble Wax : As the name suggests this wax hard and is used to give marble effect to the candles.

Beeswax : Beeswax is one of the most eco-freindly wax. It is usually available in the form of sheets which can be used for candle decoration purposes. Also it can be used for creating hand molded candles. Creative possibilities are endless in case of this wax.

Dip"n"Carve wax : True to its name this wax is much more malleable than other ordinary candle wax. This is used primarily in carving candles. This wax is also apt for creating wax  flowers, roses etc.

Gel wax : This wax comes in gelly form and is usually set in glasses/glass bowls. Gel colours are available in the market which you can mix and make coloured gel candles.

Few books that you can refer to are "The big book of Candles" by Sue Heaser.It comprises of 40 variations in candle making which are very simple. This is also my personal favourite There is another "Beeswax crafts" Search Press Publications , which gives u an idea as to how u can use beeswax creatively.

In case i hv missed out on something pls do correct me & also if anybody wants to add on to this info., pls feel free to share with me. Wouldn't mind upgrading my knowledge.

So go ahead any try out something new in candle making & give ur family /friends a nice surprise.

Thanks for stopping by !!!!!!!!

    most of the complaints from players on the forums, Facebook
    Page and walls revolve around the app freezing while loading.

    How many of these would like money to receive
    messages. tt may be most valuable for those in the gay community who may be just searching for the
    value of friendship and not necessarily looking for a
    sexual encounter, but that doesn't mean the app will gain in popularity.

  4. Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  9. Your wedding day is all about the two of you and the love you share for each other.
    00 dollars for a set of two of these flip flops for toddler
    boys. An animal control facility is no place for a young puppy
    - this precious girl should be enjoying fierce sessions of play, followed by long
    periods of snuggles and rest. Be as outrageous as
    you want, after all, its Halloween night. In addition the nail
    protects the cleanliness and beauty, many women also make up
    makeup nail polish them with great interest.
