Wilhelm, Maxine  
Wick, Wax, and Talk
 Picture
Publisher: Wilhelm Honey Farm, 1972 Erick, OK.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Trade paperback 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "..In this book 'Wick, Wax and Talk, ' I hope you will discover the pleasures of candlemaking in your home, hence the nam 'wick, Wax.' 'Talk', being derived from my quiet, slow talking husband saying, 'You are always talking. Your tongue must be loose at both ends.' But, believe me, it helps to be a talker if you plan to sell your own candles and thereby start a business. Candlemaking is never boring because there are so many kinds of candles, wax, wick and color with which to experiment. If your creations are not successful, back into the wax pot they go to be reused. Therefore, money wise, candlemaking is not as expensive as most crafts. When I started learning candlemaking by trial, error and tears, there were very few books, instructions, or instructors on the subject. The last few years several books have been written, but as I eagerly devour them, searching for more knowledge, they seem to leave many unanswered questions. Perhaps this book of instructions, experiences and antidotes may leave you with that feeling too. It's just as well, otherwise you may never experience the exciting pleasure and challenge of creating new and better candles for yourself.." Well illustrated. vii + 77 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Paper wrappers.

Appr.: | AUD 10.75 CAD 10.87 EUR 7.46 GBP 5.97 JPY 1,000.00 MXN 125.00 ZAR 107.53
