Book Review

There is an essential chapter at the beginning of The Ultimate Gel Candle Book on the basics of making gel candles that is very informative and useful. It covers the materials, tools and techniques you will be using to safely create wonderfully unique and beautiful gel wax candles. I like that the author of this book are very concerned with safety in the making and use of the candles, especially when children and pets are present in the household.

Following this chapter on the basics are a variety of candle making projects displayed beautifully in color photos that very clearly depict what the candle should look like. There is definitely a candle to satisfy anyone’s candle making interests including a variety of themed candles, candles in different types of containers and even unusual items (called embeds) to place in the gel wax to create unique candles.

The step-by-step project instructions are clear and concise so a first time user of gel wax could follow them and successfully create the wonderful candles in The Ultimate Gel Candle Book. I like the design and safety tips included throughout this book that help to ensure your gel candle making experience is a safe and successful one.
