Some of the best are chocolate chip cookies.

Modeling is also very popular. The candle takes on the white washed-out look. It almost looks like white-washed jeans. In the industry it's called modeling. And, that's a very popular look.


One of the things that is unfortunate in candle making is it's not an exact science. It is not like a baking a cake and following the directions. With candle making you can provide most of the instructions, but again there are certain things that need to be learned over processes. The best example I can think of is a lot of formulations call for five percent fragrance. I like to double that so it is stronger. By doubling that you have changed how that candle performs, however. Unless, you compensate for that, you are not going to get the same finish candle or it's not going to perform the same. The wax is not going to hold the fragrance. With candles when you change the components or cut back on components, it changes the finish of the candle.
