i'm making my own candles... i have only dabbled with the basic candle makind stuff such as basic votives and piller candles.

i've been doing a search on different candle making ideas and havn't found anything that pops out.

Anyone have any ideas for candle making?

Somtimes I make my own tallow candles the old way by rendering
hard beef fat and hand diping, they smoke and dont smell to good
but its a good thing to know to make it yourself even if its
just to know how, and its real cheap to do you can save up scrap fat
or butchers sell it for pennys.

I use to do wax carving but I also found beadwork candles can be very pretty

Could do a variety of things. Ever tried gel ones?

Would be neat to make them in weird shapes. Find bottles of strange shapes to make your candles in and then break the bottles to get the candle out.
