A friend of mine loaned me this book and I ended up buying my own copy! Very easy to follow and the candles are just fantastic. I used to see this type candle in malls when I was a kid and never thought I could make them.

Love the book. Has tons of beautiful pictures and explanations on how to do this. The instructions are simple to follow and it gives you pictures of the materials needed. very good book .I recommend it.

I've tried making dip and carve candles from youtube videos but they never turned out as it was in the videos. I'm so glad I was recommended this book. It lays everything out step by step and the instruction are really east to follow. After reading this book and attending a course on dip and carve candles I feel really confident in making these amazing candles!Many Thanks

This book is gorgeous! The pictures were fantastic and the details were written very well. I can't say weather you can actually create these beautiful candles based on the instructions, but it seems very likely!

I did not known much about candle carving, this book helped me a lot. It thought me about the tools I needed and material required each taking me through the steps to completion. Only disappointment, I wished there was more being thought about more advanced skills but will have to look for another book.

LOVE IT, This book answered questions I did not even think of. Arrived in excellent shape. Would highly recommend this book.

Fantastic! the only how to book of its kind, clear and concise, many helpful pictures. worth twice the price. xxxxx

I do not have the setup for these yet but as far as the book goes I love it. good instruction. Like any art form this will have to be learned and technique be made my own.
