Blazed Wax is a comprehensive guide to contemporary candle making from friends and designers Ruby Kannava and Emma Cutri, with over twenty-five projects for candles that will light up your life.
Candle making is an ancient craft, but modern candle making is all about incredible shapes and surprising color combinations. This book brings together everything you need to start making your own sculptural candles at home – from unique mold-making using everyday items like fruit and vases, to dip-dyed candle-pouring, or even making fun twisted candles from supermarket candles.
Including over twenty-five projects for candles and candle holders, with easy instructions, step-by-step photography and guides to materials, scents, safety and styling, Blazed Wax will have you creating in no time.
Beautiful candles are a surprisingly easy art to try at home, the possibilities are endless, and you can always melt your creation down and start again! These unique candles bring warmth and ambience to your home, are perfect for celebrations and gifts, and will become the centerpiece of any dinner table or relaxing ritual.
There's something innately magical about how a burning candle brings people together, and Blazed Wax will help you to capture some of that magic in your own hand-made candles.
