    • We could definitely use some more information please. And I'm a little confused, you said you are using tins, but that is a jar. What size is that? I use HTPs, and in a 16oz jar I would only use a 93 on a very heavy fragrance. If that was a picture after a 2 hour burn, I would say that candle is very over wicked.  Can you give us the exact size of your containers? As well as the FO load like Scented asked for, and since its soy wax, how long are you letting it cure?
    • So, how did it go?  Hope you did well.   I have my first big one for the year this coming weekend.  It's in a tourist town about 3.5 hours away and I usually do extremely well.  Unfortunately, unless the weather reports change it could be totally crappy as of now it's supposed to rain Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  But, keeping my fingers crossed.  
    • Hey Scented sorry I did not understand ... running something around the edges and base? Like apply something or run the heat gun ? I am making pillars...so do I apply on the mold? Please pardon my ignorance... thanks
    • This is a very good question, I was wondering if I could get jet black too! I want to make a black licorice scented candle.
    • I am trying to upload photos of some candles I made, but get the error message that my photos are too large.  Does anyone know how to shrink the photo size so I can make this work?  thanks in advance
