The Candlemaker’s Companion

The Candlemaker's Companion is a complete guide to rolling, pouring, dipping, and decorating your own candles.


This complete candle-making guide includes an excellent chapter on troubleshooting, which many other instructional books do not include. The Candlemaker’s Companion also features complete source lists and step-by-step instructions on the following:

  • Create rolled, poured, molded, gel, dipped, and custom-blended candles
  • Scent, color, and decorate candles for special places and occasions
  • Make innovative containers, holders, and gift packaging
  • Create luminaria, lanterns, and floating candles
  • Use specialty techniques, such as over dipping, painting, layering, and sculpting
