When I was a child we visited Old Sydney Town on a school excursion. I loved seeing them make candles and bought some to take home.
I begged for a candle making kit and finally got one for my birthday. I enjoyed it for a while and now can honestly say, I have no idea whatever happened to my kit.
So yes, I have made candles and enjoyed it, but don't do it anymore.
No. I have never tried candle making. I thought about doing a class on candle making a few times, but never got around to doing it. I went though a phase where i used scented candles all the time, but i dont tend to use them much these days.
