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 😉
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

Marie Gale is very helpful for soap and cosmetic labeling - which is very similar to candle labeling
