    % of FO in palm wax

    I rarely ever go above 3-4% FO in my palm wax. I just don't see a need to go higher when I can get an amazing throw with that low percent. ...

    How much stock to bring?

    Depends, - I never did well in spring/summer time, so now only do 4 fall shows. There is one show that I do about 20-25x my booth fee, and it's the smallest show I do (granted my booth fee is low, but still) Good luck, and hopefully you do well!

    Organic soy candles

    The soy wax manufacturers have done a brilliant job in making people believe that. But, it still has to go through processing to become wax. It doesn't just grow as wax, there is a whole industry in the processing, which may or may not be good for the environment. It still takes machines, oil, gas, emissions etc., to make that processing happen. So? You decide. To me, organic/natural are buzz words that get tossed around and used too often and IMO they are not synonomous with "GOOD" - case in point, hemlock, arsenic, poison ivy/oak, all organic, all natural --- however, good? Umm, not in my opinion...

    Kilgharrah -

    Isn't it so good! (and corny - but good!) And Colin Morgan is my favorite. He is so cute! HA
  6. Probably not. I mean, there may be that random 1 that might say something, but if you let them know it's just the character of the candle, you won't (or shouldn't) lose a sale over it. I view details like that in pillars the way I view wet spots in containers. It's just a part of the candle, and nobody really notices or cares.

    Organic soy candles

    On top of what kandlekrazy said, think of the cost. IMO a 100% truly organic candle is going to be too expensive to produce, and wouldn't it have to be a pillar since glass containers are not really organic? IDK, I've never really tried to do organic, because I honestly truely do not believe they are the end-all product. I think at best they may be about 1-3% 'better' than just an ordinary everyday product. That is totally my opinion, based on my research and my experience, and I get that some people do not agree with that, but that's where I stand.
  8. Or don't worry about it. If it bothers YOU then yeah, go ahead, but I guarantee 99% of your customers are not going to A) notice or B ) care.

    How do you wick large batches?

    LOL before I got my wick setter took, I used a hollowed out pen.

    Kilgharrah -

    So here is the soap I was going to name Dante's Inferno, but after cutting it, it just did not scream "inferno" to me, Dante's or otherwise! LOL However, I wanted to keep the "dragon" theme since it's a blend of Dragon's Blood and Cracklin' Birch. So, I decided to name it Kilgharrah (Points to anyone who knows who that is without having to look it up!!) Anyway, I love the name, and even though the soap didn't turn out like I wanted it too, I do love it. (I couldn't find my red oxide anywhere so I used Nurture's Really Red, and still got pink. I don't know how people get such a vibrant Christmas Red by just using that without a touch of oxide. I've never been able too!) Anyway, here it is, in all it's glory. In the mold - Right before the cut - And finally, the cut and a close-up - LOVE the rivers I got.
