I am very new at this whole candle making thing. I thought it would be a fun thing to start doing, something interesting to fill the time when my boyfriend works on the weekends. I got a starter kit for Christmas that includes a big chunk of wax, a thermometer, wicks, small metal molds, colors, and scents. I bought a metal pot that looks like it could be used to pour the wax into the molds. I have a few questions about this.
1- I know I need a double boiler. However, can I use the metal pot I bought and use a bigger pot to make a double boiler?
2- How much of the scented wax do I add?
3- How much of the colored wax do I add?
Thanks, I look forward to starting this and I am hoping to get good enough to actually be able to sell my candles at local flea markets! <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
