    Candle Making

    Im new to the DS and the boards, but think that I have landed in the perfect place for me. I ordered, and just recieved a candle making kit. I'm hoping to to get to try it out tomorrow. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks ahead, Kathy

    I ordered my kit from peat, but am really interested in making tarts. I would think that it would be fairly simple, but want the long lasting scent. Do I add more oil?

    I don't understand the question..do you use molds?  depends on the type of candles.

    I have done really well with beeswax candles by using sheet wax; Sheet wax works best when you are in a warm environment.
