    candles
  1. Thank you so much. That was very helpful advice!
  2. I started off as a newbie in the spring and lots of testing, hundreds of dollars, and many hours spent on this board, I can some pretty good candles if I stick to the two containers and wicks I use. My question is how can I test fragrance oils faster? I’m using 6006 wax and making a candle, then waiting two weeks is not going to get me ready for Christmas. Could I make melts and test them in a few days? Any advice would be appreciated.
  3. It’s a 4 inch diameter. I think Tyler Candles are double wicked in this same container. I don’t mind buying other wicks, I just don’t know which ones would work better.
  4. I have 10 Lbs of 464 I need to use up and I would like to make some double wicked 11 oz tureen jars. I have several sizes of ECO wicks and was thinking of trying ECO 6.
  5. Been lurking and learning for a while, it is such a great group I thought I should join in. I am strictly an amateur. After many failed attempts at soy candles I switch to 6006 wax and I’ve made some decent container candles, but I still have a long way to go. My question is about slowing the cooling process. Is the purpose of this cosmetic, or does it help the scent throw? A second related question is does the wax need to breathe during cooling? I drilled a hole in some plastic plates and I use those for wick holders during cooling, the idea was to prevent evaporation of the FO. Lastly thanks for all y’all have taught me, I never would have made it this far without you.
