    Smile Where do you get your supplies?

    I've been shopping on Ebay for molds and pre-made wicks, but I need a good source of good quality wax. The 10lb blocks at the craft store are $25 and don't seem very high quality. Where do you gals(and guys if any) get your wax and scents?

    What kind of wax do you want to use?
    Here's a few suppliers I have used in the past (I have been making candles for 6+ years now), both for wax, wicks, molds and FO's:
    www.naturesgardencandles.com
    www.kycandlewaxsupply.com/
    www.lonestarcandlesupply.com
    www.candlewic.com
    www.bittercreek.com
    If you would like to try some good quality and really cheap FO's, I have a TON of samples listed in the For Sale section here on the FV. Just figured I would throw that in there.
    Have fun!

    I have never bought or sold on E Bay.
    I bought a starter kit from BCN- container soy kit.
    If you follow the candle cauldron link at BCN under links,, they have a classified area, and you may be able to save on molds etc there.
    Candletech has a huge forum, and after 30 days the coops and ad forums open up to you!
    This is what I am waiting for...4 more days!

    If you want to save money on molds.....you can use cooking pans..cupcake pans in all kinds of shapes and sizes..you can use cookie cutters...use a wax glue and cardboard to make the mold....it's fun...
