SUMMARY- I was with her until she recommended using the kitchen sink as a water bath. I would never get liquid wax anywhere near my sinks unless you want to help send your local plumber's child to college. She also neglects to mention that with an ice cube candle, you should use a 1" column candle the same height as your finished candle will be for the center, so that the wick will not simply burn down through the center of your candle quickly. She does give other solid basic advice throughout the little booklet that comes with this cute little kit.
