Making scented candles as a craftThere are 3 main types of candle making each one suiting differeent circumstances. The simplest is probably rolling a candle out of a sheet of wax, this is the method often used with children. Secondly you can make candles in molds. This is a very popular method of doing it as you can make lots of candles fairly quickly and you can add perfumes etc. (If you don't want to use molds it has now become popular to make these candles directly into glass jars etc. You must however be careful about the glasss you use). Finally there is "dipping" which is probable the oldest method of candle making. I personally have seen some fantastic dipped candles which were "sculpted" whilst still hot.
