Candle making bad for birds?

Hey guys

So I love hobbies and I decided I want to try candle making, I know you should never have candles lit because it's bad for a birds health and I never light candles but I'd like to make it and it includes boiling wax. Does anyone make candles I heard you can use soy wax and it's better then peripharon(not sure if that's spelled right) or bee wax...anyone make candles? Anyone know which is best? Thanks in advance

I have not ideas about candle making but a thought had just crossed my mind - you could try to make your candles in shape of quaker birds Maybe other bird species too, wouldn't that be a interesting hobby

One thing I couldn't tell you I am super safe about things I don't know about. Wait until somebody tells you before you do. Better safe than sorry!
