    • I meant Wimberley Wix ,same as you have it on your label .Sorry bout that just a typo error on my part .Adore the name you chose .
    • Thanks Sarah ,Yes read the tutorial . I have not much experience with candle making lol.  I make tons of wax melts &  a few candles in my spare time .It is a  huge dream of mine to master candle making with palm wax ,that's a whole new story I know right ?   I saw Trapps post & want to make a few of these for gifts before the holiday season. It will take me that long to get the candles made properly .   I am terrified of the thought to ever give anyone a candle that is not properly wicked . I lack confidence when it comes to wicking . I have mastered some candles with good results using 4630 . I do realize how much testing is involved when it comes to candle making . I appreciate having you all here to help me out when I have a question . I am planning to make the melt chunks with my reg blend & over pour with the 4630 ,wicking is going to be the big challenge here . The melts will be 4625/4630 blend ,same as I always use for melts ,over pour 4630, just not sure about wicking ,being the chunks will have 4625 ,never wicked this wax before .   I have mostly used zinc wicks with 4630 ,seems to work out fine ,once I got the correct size wick with each container . I am going to give this project a try & maybe by Christmas I will have mastered a few for gifts..lol if I do not lose my patience. I know I will be going thru a ton of wax,wicks,jars during my trail testing . Thank you Sarah ,I greatly appreciate your response 😉 Kat    
    • also, just another tid bit of info, they do soak up super fast, but i have Figured out that i can Add more oil and it will soak it up also. I havent Finished testing to figure out amounts yet, but they do soak up additional oil, which is cool
    • @ncraiders, @Quentin @Trappeur   Heres a handy guide that will answer many many of the questions and comments above: https://www.nist.gov/sites/default/files/documents/2017/04/28/1020-1-labeling-guides-weight.pdf pages 10-11 spell out the solutions to the challenges named above, namely approximate and the location of each piece of info (front panel, etc.)      Marie Gale is very helpful for soap and cosmetic labeling - which is very similar to candle labeling https://www.mariegale.com/quick-labeling-faq/
