You will learn all about the history of scented candles, basic candle terms like “candle throw,” “melt pool” “first burn,” “wax memory,” “cure time,” and “fragrance notes,” important terms for understanding how to get the most from a scented candle.
You’ll learn about various types of candle waxes and fragrance available on the market today, how to calculate the amount of wax needed for the size of a vessel, how much fragrance to add, and the importance of mixing and pouring temperatures. You’ll also learn why choosing the right wick for the wax and fragrance is critical to the quality of the finished candle and how to troubleshoot candles that aren’t burning optimally.
Under the guidance of an experienced candle maker, each attendee will create their own Winter Wonderland embellished candle in a beautiful 8 oz satin finish tin.
WINTER WONDERLAND SMELLS
You'll choose from 7 different complex wintery scents or even blend your own combination; Cranberry & Clove, Snuggly Sweater, Apple Cider and Oak and Cinnamon Spice Cake, Spiced Winter Tea, Mistletoe and Roasted Pinecone.
You'll choose a satin finish candle tin from three holiday colors, Ruby Red, and Evergreen.
The wax is a luxury clean burning apricot and coconut wax, and the whimsical wooden wicks say “cozy” on them and crackle when they burn!
