Soy Epic Workshops is indeed an art form and is a pretty easy and straightforward process from start to finish. Having said it will take a bit of practice to produce the right candle each and every time. The process is a simple one consisting of melting the wax, including the color and scents you like then pouring the wax into the container or mold of your choice. Lastly, once the wax starts to harden add the wick to the container and then allowing it to set. Be sure and brace the wick straight if the wick starts to lean during the set up process.
