How to Make a Chunk Candle
I recently got back into making candles. And my search for new ideas I found these instructions on how to make a chunk candle by SDKP, eHow Member. I always thought chunk candles as just chunks, not shapes. The author really did well incorporating the moon shape and dividing the candle down the middle with the two different colors. It really makes a statement. I am going to try this technique really soon. And over the years I have purchased a variety of cookie cutters to make soap embedds, now I have another use for them.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
