    That was me. Mixing it into the fragrance acts as a solvent for the dye. I usually mix in what I need to the entire lb once I figure out how much I need in a particular wax.

    What are you using to scent your car?

    This is what BC gives for instructions: https://cart.candlesupply.com/Air-Freshener-Blanks-Supplies-c-630.html 5 Easy Steps to a Basic Air Freshener Brush or spray shape with water diluted food color, soap dye, or poster paint and allow it to dry thoroughly. (This is optional) Apply fragrance by painting on with an inexpensive paint brush or using a pipette to drizzle it on. We don't recommend dunking or soaking, since over saturating the material with fragrance results in greasy fresheners and will require blotting, which wastes fragrance oil! Punch a hole at the top with a small METAL office-type paper punch. Plastic scrapbook punches may break, due to the thickness of the material. Cut a piece of string, elastic, thread, yarn, raffia or ribbon to the desired length, and thread it through hole at top, knotting ends securely. Package completed air freshener by putting it in a flat cello bag, fold down the top, and staple or tape it closed. You can also use a label to seal it, or staple a fold-over header card or a business card to the top of the bag. I kind of like what Sarah S said about spraying seats. I keep towels over my seats so I'd be spraying the towels, which is even better. And maybe when my truck warms up during the day, the scent will diffuse in the heat.

    The other option is if you are using a pc and have a program like paint or paint.net you can use one of those programs and and use the resize feature and shrink it down to say 50% or so to cut down on file size and how large the actual photos size it.

    It’s usually because the resolution is set to a size that makes the file size huge. You can usually shrink that by editing the photo on your phone. From your phone while viewing the photo, choose the edit feature. Depending on the phone you should see some sort of edit link to click. Crop it a little and save.
  10. I'm concerned about DS. I put in an order May 1. I've tried to contact her by email, facebook, and text. No reply at all.

    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?

    How much stock to bring?

    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
  16. Some of my extended family really liked CS Black Sea; now I'm curious about Aztec's. Not that I need anymore oils. Love seeing everyone's processes too.

    How do you pour and test multiple scents?

    I may have to try CS Black Sea.

    It might help if you tell us how much wax you're melting and how much fragrance you're adding.

    In reference to the air bubbles and the spots ... you can tell if it's fragrance usually by sniffing it or the feel of it is kind of oily. When you pour you might try running something around your edges and base that would jar any air bubbles. You specks are mostly caused by air or dirt. You can spot them in the lighter colors and no colored pours because they're shiny looking beads or droplets is the best way I can think of to describe it.

    So I am fairly new to candle making. I’ve been trying at it for the past 6 months and of course like everyone else, the frustration has set in. I am currently using 4oz and 8oz tin containers and using c3 wax. My struggle is figuring out what size/type of wick I should use for my candles. I am not getting a strong hot scent throw. The current fragrances that I have been using come from Justscents.com. I am currently testing different wicks to see what would work best. I purchased sample wicks packets with all different sizes of wicks. Some of the ones that I have are Premier, HTP, CD and ECO. Does anyone have any suggestions on the type of wick I should use and size based on the information I provided? If you need any any other information please let me now so I can provide. Any assistance will be great appreciated! Picture below is me testing the HTP 93 m wick. I let it burn for about 2 hours.

    Pouring and Curing Process

    Thanks Sarah !! I have started testing CBL125 this past weekend...really like the early results. Thanks for sharing and responding!
  24. It is similar to a heat gun but is is a lot smaller and easier to use one handed. I always think of them as travel heat guns really cause they are less bulky and can fit them in a fairly small bag. They are also a bit more precise on were the heat is directed.
  25. They both have a similar thread braid appearance.
  26. I think you're right....as a consumer, a mold line would not deter me from buying the candle. Not if I like it, and love the scent. I guess I was overthinking it. What's an embossing gun?
