Candle making!

For Christmas 2012 - Jeff & I exchanged token gifts.  I bought him a scented candle making kit.  The kit included the basics.  He made candles using the ball mold, the taper mold.  They turned out great.  Then the boxes started to arrive...  from candle-making suppliers...!

The scents, colour dyes, wax, wicks, extra moulds.  All adding to a cacophony of colours and smells, shapes and textures.

Every sense is used in candle making - maybe with the exception of taste!  Unless of course, you use to much scent, sometimes the lower, more mellow notes such as vanilla can be tasted when too much gets up your nasal passages.
