10 easy steps to gel candle crafting
Candle gel is the hottest new product in candle crafting. This new material (95% mineral oil, 5% resin) is transparent and extremely easy to clean up, and it has a significantly longer burning time than traditional waxes. Learn the basics of making gel candles in 10 easy steps, and then explore the endless possibilities for creating special effects with layers of color, swirls, bubbles, interesting containers, and embedments, such as glass, shells botanicals, and opaque waxes. Special techniques include everything from creating rainbow effects to making candles that look like jars of preserves, from designing a seascape setting to producing polka dot designs.

Top Customer Reviews
Of course the reviewer has a right to her opinion, however it is incorrect that I recommend people "set an untabbed wick in gel". In my introduction, on page 4, I state "The wick must be self-tabbed with a metal holder". In my general discussion of materials required, on page 21, I state "the wick must have a metal T-Tab at its base which is at least 7/16" high". Finally, in my detailed discussion of wicks on page 22, I explain at great length why a tabbed wick is so essential (it would be a fire hazard to not use one).
I do not believe that the reviewer has read my book very carefully because her statement about wicks, as well as her other statements, do not reflect the content of the book.
Thanks for taking the time to read this statement.
So plan on buying gel for your candles, but do not plan on whipping up your own from mineral oil and CP9000!
If you want a book that gives you basic information, explanations, and project ideas with pictures, this is the book for you. It's worth every penny.
