Hello from Canada!


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


My wife and I have started crafting candles and (by request of friends) we are looking at making some handmade soaps and beard oils as well. We've been "experimenting" now for about 6 weeks and I have to admit, like a lot of others here, I'm OBSESSED! :)


I've been searching around for a good site for information on troubleshooting issues - and I'm glad I've found this site. I've been reading it extensively the past few days and have found a wealth of information - so I figured I should sign up so I can officially become a "Wax Drip"  hahaha


We started experimenting with the EcoSoya CB-Advanced but have switched over to the CB-135. The main reason is we want the wax adhesion for containers. Currently we are experimenting with the HTP wicks.


So, again hello to all - and looking forward to perfecting chandlery!

Welcome to Craft Server!


Funny you mention beard oil... I have just recently started doing research into making beard oil, aftershave toner, and making shaving brushes. I would love to learn how to make badger/boar knots and wood/ceramic handles out of the raw materials. I currently make shaving soap and have my shaving mugs handmade for me by a local potter. Once you get into the shaving world there is so much to learn.


Mostly I make soap and candles. Shaving products are on the side for now.
