SUMMARY- I wasn't as happy with this gel candle book - mostly because ALL her examples had an amazing amount of bubbles in them - even when(in my opinion) the bubbles detracted from the theme of the candle. The ideas presented are sound - I particularly liked the "fruit cocktail" candle - and the photos are great, but I want perfection, not "good enough" in my craft books. Your mileage may vary.
