Wax is the most beautiful material to work with. You can dye it, mould it, shape it and scent it. We supply additives to soften it (micro cyrystalline soft) or harden it (micro cyrystalline hard). When softened it is malleable - few people can resist playing with the texture of molten wax - and permanent when it has been dyed, moulded and hardened.
When you make candles you can also control the way they burn. They can burn down the inside (which makes them refillable), burn evenly or foliate (when the wax folds in two as it burns down).
Candles make wonderful
gifts - and its great fun to make your own. You can make
candles inscribed with friend's names, birthday date, age, or astrology
sign. It is easy to transform a basic candle for a special
occasion such as Christmas or Valentines. Make your own wedding favours
