From Library Journal
Both these books cover essentially the same ground and are good basic guides for making candles. They deal with waxes, wicks, molds, scents, and a variety of decorating techniques. Oppenheimer's book has a more extensive text with line drawings, while Coney's is completely illustrated with color photographs. Both have more information on candle-making than Gloria Nicol's The New Candle Book (LJ 11/1/95), a guide that emphasizes candle display. These are both good basic books for the library craft collection.

Inspiration combined with great techniques and a troubleshooting guide make this book a wonderful addition to your craft library. Coney has covered about everything you would need to know in order to buy supplies, work with different waxes and create your own beautiful masterpieces. The introduction is a brief history of the evolution of candles and their place in history. Each section of the book covered a topic such as equipment, molds, cautions, special effects and a very good trouble shooting guide. Photography shows clear pictures of each step and there are also many examples of each type of candle to further charm you. This volume is a bargain and would appeal to anyone old enough to handle hot wax. It is especially appropriate for beginners, and can save a lot of time and needless mistakes. -- From Independent Publisher
