I wanted to introduce myself to you guys and say hi. I am a software developer living in Birmingham, AL. I haven't made my first candle yet, but it seems interesting from what I've read so far in that it would explore both my technical and creative sides (same with software development). When I go into a store my eye is automatically drawn to the things that I can't afford (or wouldn't pay that much for), and wouldn't you know it... my initial interest seems to be in soy wax... seemingly the most finicky wax around from what I've read!!!

I've got my EL Millenium wax to try and am waiting on my FO and colorant for my first candle(s). Actually I think I'm going to try only FO for my first candles and skip the colorant due to what I've read about the problems inherent in coloring soy (again, from what I've read).

Well, we see how it goes... I'm sure I'll keep you guys "posted":)

You have no idea what you're getting into! :P Ha - just kidding!

I'm pretty new as well and this soy candlemaking thing is truly addicting. It's so satisfying when you actually make a candle that performs like you want it to. Good luck and have fun with it.
