I bought a candle holder that came with one clear gel candle in a round votive
glass and once it's done...yikes. I don't have anymore.
I live in NYC and was wondering if there's a website or a store where I could
buy supplies to refill this candle. I've never made a candle before so it would
be new on several levels but I really want to replace the clear gel candle that
I'm slowly burning away.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
You can email me or post here.
Thanks in advance,

Making the candles is like a science experiment....mixing the base & polymer,
cooking it, bringing it up to & maintaining a specific temperature,
stirring...for what seems like an eternity LOL And your kitchen becomes a
total disaster area for an entire day or more!
Try a search for candle making supplies and see if you can find something more
fitting to your needs.

Its DownEast Candles in Maine. The web page wasn't working very well
when I checked it this morning, but you can probably find their phone
number in the online yellow pages.
Also, I have a candle making web page, I don't sell anything but I have
a ton of links to candle making supply businesses.

I'd bookmarked the same site from a discussion on a soap/candle page--
they were getting rave reviews. They have a starter pkg (1 gal) for
~$30. Requires some cooking to get it up to temp (200F) & oil-based
colorant & fragrance.
anyhow, these are wonderful.. but you can only burn them for a short
time.. or so they say.. I never bothered to read that far <grin>
anyhow, if you would like more info on them, go to
it's todays showstopper, but you can also find it under crafts. Here's
"The Tina Lewis Gelly Candle & Paint & Bake Accents Kit includes 24
pieces: three 25 oz tubs of gelly
candle; nine feet of wick; 12 anchors; three candle dyes in
blue, red and yellow (each 0.1 oz); vanilla and
rose scents (each 0.1 oz); silver metallic Paint & Bake (1
oz); gold metallic Paint & Bake (1 oz); a paint
brush and step-by-step instructions. Make unique clear
candles that look like they're designer made
using any clear glass container. You will need: a glass
container, scissors, small cooking pot, stove with
heat control, a drinking straw, tweezers, and a
heat-resistant oven mitt. "
