IF THERE IS A HOBBY LOBBY NEAR YOU.YOU CAN DOWN LOAD COUPONS FOR UP TO 40% OFF WAX. THEY CARRY SEVERAL GRADES OF WAX HERE.WICKS, POTS FOR MELTING.PERSONALLY I USE CRAYONS FOR COLORING.THIS OFFERS A WIDER CHOICE OF COLORS.FOR OILS CK OUT WELLINGTON FRAGRANCES.I USE THE TO MAKE MY SOAP,CANDLES,INCENSES,BODY OILS.I ALSO HAVE A VACUUM MOLDER SO I CAN MAKE MY OWN SHAPE AND MOLDS.WORKS BETTER FOR MAKING DOUBLE ENDED CANDLES

If you want to try a different candle,then try making an ice candle. take a pint or a quart or even a half gallon milk carton. Not the jug type,but the square carton type. after cleaning it open the top fully.weight your wick with a flat washer to the bottom adding just enough wax to form a base.when the wax sets enough pull till straight.tie to a pencil laid across the top of the open carton.poor just enough wax down the wick so it remain centered and stiff. Next add ice cubes till just below the top of the carton.(you can buy the rubber shaped ice trays just about anywhere.mixing shapes just add to the whole look.)quickly poor the rest of your wax over the ice all the way to the top.let set over night.when you cut the carton away it is best to set it in the sink as the water will come pouring out.let the candle dry a few days before burning.best to burn on a large plate as the melting wax will travel out several holes left by the ice.hope you enjoy it.

try on line suppliers. wholesale. you can buy dipping tanks for making taper candles. mine makes ten tapers at a time.they also have choices in wax type and a place like wellington fragrance list the type of oils with a large list of fragrances. when you buy your wax they will tell you the proper melting point for each style of wax.you can also fine a wide selection of molds if you want other than tapers.

Hey, I go through a huge number of candles on the altar. It seems to be getting harder to find them without petroleum products. I could use a few tips to get started making my own. Any sages out there?
