Soy Tarts?

Does anyone here enjoy soy over other types of wax? Do you like burning candles or tarts? I personally like soy over other types of waxes and would rather melt a tart then a candle. In my opinion you get more fragrance from a tart for some reason. I myself make soy tarts (I sell them online) and love it. I also make candles, but I hardly burn them. There's always a tart (or 5) burning in my home. What about you? What types of candles do you make? Which do you prefer?

CANDLES - Candles, What better hobby is there?
Oh that is so cool, I have been making soy candles for the past 2 years and I love it:) I would love to start my own business but I have no idea how to go about it,where to start stuff like that. I haven't tried making the tarts, I love doing the bigger triple and quadruple wick candles, I change my scents often to fit my mood. I really prefer the soy wax, it burns cleaner and it helps support the farmers of America:)

Wow!! Those are pretty big candles!! =) Start up is pretty easy, getting customers to the site is a whole nother story. Next year I would like to introduce my products to a few of the little stores in my area. I would LOVE to have another outlet other then the internet to sell. =)

How do you go about your start up? Any advise you can give? Have you tried local flea markets or little well known stores in your area that are like Mom and Pop stores?

I would love to learn how to make highly scented candles and tarts. I buy Gold Canyon candles because they have such a great strong fragrance. I burn so many candles I really need to learn how to do it myself. Do you sell quite a few candles online?

My tarts are my best sellers - every now and then I will get an order or 2 for candles. I don't think I've heard of Gold Canyon? Are they parrafin or soy wax?
