    Default Candle tutorial #2: Supplies

    Next we need to gather our wax, wicks, scents and colors. You can see that I have a ziplock of wax scraps. I keep them and as long as the scents don't fight with the scents that I'm using I can throw them in from time to time as well.

    You'll need:
    wax
    wicks (I buy the tabbed wicks, much easier to work with)
    a glue gun and glue sticks
    scents
    coloring
    popcycle sticks with a hole drilled in the center
    something to hold the wicks down with until the hot glue sets, I use a small screw driver

    As a footnote I buy my supplies from Bitter Creek Candles at www.candlesupply.com
    They offer a lot of help through that site and you can all of your stuff there. I think they even offer a newsletter. Tammy (bammamomto4) recommended it to me. (thanks Tammy!)

    They have some really good FO's. I use wick stickums to hold my wicks in place. They are just little round stickers you attach to the bottom of the wick tab and then to the bottom of the jar. Easier then hot glue and keeps the wick from shifting while burning the candle.
