    Palm wick testing

    Thanks everybody. I appreciate you guys so much. So I will do full jars, wait 3 to 5 days before testing.. Also, I was planning on not doing dye and FO doing my testing. Is anything wrong with that? One other thing, when testing do you ever make the candle without the wick and then once it is hard, insert the wick. And if that wick does not work right off, take the wick out, insert a different wick and hot gun the top so its even. I did that with coconut wax and it was easier OR should I just test it all the way to the end and then make another candle if it does not work. I know palm is a different character, so I want to make sure do it correctly.
  4. If i just want to test wicks: 1. Can i make half jar candle? 2. Do i still need tobwait 3 to 5 days before I test?

    Palm wax shrinkage

    I have a question about the flip method. I notice the bottom of my jars get hard tgen the top. If i flip won't the air pockets be closer to the middle?
