The right environment for candle making

The right environment for candle making

First of all, get the right environment for candle making in your room. You want your room to be free of drafts, so keep all your windows and doors closed. Next set up a table with all your equipment, it's best to do the whole process close to your hob and cover your table or use a tray to catch any spillages.
