The candle making molds are the very centerpiece of your candle making operation. These wildly varied devices contain the melted wax, which takes on the shape of the inside of the candle making mold. The mold holds it perfectly in place while the melted wax cools and congeals. Once hardened, you pop out the candle and you have exactly the shape, size, and look and feel that you wanted.

First step under candle making instructions is to select the wax. There are different kinds of wax available. However, if you are a beginner, it is better to use pre-blended paraffin wax which can be used for any purpose. This should be available in any candle supply shop. The next step in candle making instructions is to select a wick. There are again many types of wicks. However, select one depending upon the diameter of the candle that you are going to make.

The high note, which has a light and free feel to it. It is the first smell that you pick up on and it only lasts for a while before it evaporates in to the air. Citrus scents are usually high notes.

So now that you are looking for a candle making book online, or an eBook I should say, what are you looking for? Well there can be a lot of low quality ebooks available, this is the downside to ebooks, it seems that anyone can make an eBook and sell it on the internet. For the reason I just mentioned you should always look in to the book a little bit before you buy it. Does it have a refund policy? Does it have a guarantee? Is there a place where you can contact the author or supplier for questions and comments? If the eBook that you are looking into has all of this then you are off to a good start.

You can create your own Candle making Singapore scents easily, What you are going to need is as follows: cotton swabs, small glass jars, baby food containers work great, a notepad and a pen or pencil, and all of the oils that you have. All that you need to do is dab a tiny amount of the oil the want to use with a cotton swab and place it in the glass jar. Continue doing this with each of the oils that you want to use to create a scent, use a different cotton swab for each oil but put all of the cotton swabs in to the same container.

The next necessary supply you will need is wicks. There are many different types of wicks and as you progress, you will begin to favor one type of wick over another. There are pre-tabbed wicks and un-tabbed wicks. You may want to try each one to see which one works for you. There are also different thicknesses of wicks available and the size of the wick you will use will be determined by the size of the candle that you are making. You should read the label on the wick packet and it will tell you what size wick you should use. There are also different types of wicks for paraffin wax versus soy or all natural wax. All of these things factor into what type of wick you should use. Experiment with these to find which types works for you.

Choosing wax can be a lot of fun and an interesting venture with a little knowledge of the different kinds of wax, how they burn, where to purchase and what type of vessel to be used in. After you have mastered that, wonderful candle making will be on the horizon!
