5.0 out of 5 stars Basic but very helpful October 27, 2007
Format:Paperback
I found this book to be rather basic but easy to understand. It talks a little about the history of candle dipping and gives comprehensive instructions on how to make them. It explains termonology used in making candles and how different things affect the final product. If you ever wanted to try candle dipping I would recommend this book as a good place to start!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best publication I have found on candle making August 15, 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Being a lover of beeswax candles, rolled as well as dipped, I was blown away with this publication which is actually more complete than most of the candle making books I have that cost me way to much money. If you want a down to earth, easy to read and follow publication that covers the basics, troubleshooting problems, safety equipment and procedures, storage tips suppliers etc, this is the only publication you will probably need.

Tired of having several large books for a project when you only use a portion of the info? Than this is the book for you. Small but packed with great information and intruction on how to make beautiful hand dipped candles. This book is a must for the new or experienced candle maker.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected April 19, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was more like a pamphlet than a book, and much more difficult and time consuming than I thought. If you're interested in making candle like the 1700's version, this is for you. As for myself, I'd rather use molds!
