I have read this book three times now, and learned quite a bit more with each reading. Even as a professional candle maker, there were projects and methods I had yet to experiment with. I've followed some of the projects in this book, and had EXCELLENT results.
I can attest to the success anyone can have by following the projects included in this book. There are dozens of projects and the creativity Bob Sherman encourages will make for endless fun filled hours of candle making.
Everything one needs to know from safety, set up, & workspace, through ingredients, formulas, and full explanations of everything, is here in a fun to read, easy to follow format. There are hundreds of instructional, material, and projects pictures. There is a plethora of charts, tables, and all the necessary formulas and references to guide and teach you.
Raw materials and all possible ingredients are outlined and explained in detail, with attention paid to the interactions of all things that go into making a well burning, high quality candle. The glossary is exceptionally through and easy to understand. Candle Making, by Bob Sherman, is the ultimate guide. With this book, some experimentation, experience, and just a bit of creativity, you could make candles for a hobby or as a professional. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a creative outlet or just to learn about candle making.
I know some people expect color pictures in a book like this one. However, I appreciate the use of black and white pictures in this book which, undoubtedly, keeps the price very reasonable. I hate to think what this book would cost with color pictures.
If you buy only one candle making book, make it this one.
Besides, the photos are all in black and white (in a candle book you would expect color photos) and, in some cases, it is almost impossible to figure out what the photo is trying to demonstrate.
