  • Create rolled, poured, molded, and dipped candles
  • Scent, color, and decorate candles -- naturally
  • Make innovative containers, holders, and gift packaging
  • Create luminaria, lanterns, and floating candles
  • Use specialty techniques like overdipping, painting, layering, and sculpting
