PURCHASED SEPARATELY AT THIS WEBSITE THE VALUE OF THE CONTENTS OF THIS KIT ONLY TOTAL $45.
If you really want a good value for your investment in the same high quality Candle Science items,
instead of the kit that makes 12 eight-ounce WHITE candles in four pre-selected scents
consider purchasing the following items to make 30 eight-ounce COLORED candles in up to ten scents of your choice:
1 Small Melting/Pouring Pitcher (you can skip this item if you plan to melt your soy in the microwave - it's easy!)
8" Glass Thermometer
1 Dozen Wick Bars
10 pounds of Golden Brands 464 Soy Wax Flakes
2 ECO Wick Sample Kits (one kit contains 5 of each wick size)
1 Roll Large Wick Stickers
1 Roll Warning Labels
10 Fragrance Oil 1oz Sample Bottles in your choice of scents (1oz for each pound of soy wax)
Find 30 HEAT-SAFE RECYCLED CONTAINERS OR Purchase 3 Dozen 8oz Containers such as:
8oz Tins (use ECO-12 Wicks from the ECO Sample Pack listed above)
8oz Apothecary Jars (use ECO-16 Wicks from the ECO Sample Pack listed above)
8oz Jelly Jars (use ECO-10 Wicks from the ECO Sample Pack listed above)
(Just remember, container diameter determines wick size and there are only so many of each size in the wick sample kits.)
After your first couple of batches in the metal tins, give COLORED candles a try in the glass containers:
Purchase CS Dye Block Sampler OR Reddig-Glow Dye Chip Sampler
(Dark colored candles seem to burn differently for me, so consider going up a wick size for dark colored candles and/or do a burn test.)
Please note that while the total purchase cost may be a larger investment, you will be paying less for the MATERIALS (soy, wicks, scent) to produce more candles which results in a lower individual cost per candle. The cost of all the other times (pitcher, thermometer, bars) are the EQUIPMENT that you get to keep to use again.
By all means, do make full use of the excellent instructional videos at the Candle Science LEARNING page.
Best of luck and enjoy your Candle Science adventure!
