  1. Hey, following up on a post that you made way back in June..............pls don't withdraw from the forum ...just saying..................

  2. I'm just thinking about the testing on these puppies - Ok, after 6,000 hours this CD wick seems to be tunneling a little bit - lets try the ECO now .......
  3. Once you get a stronger liquid dye you can make up very small batches of wax with just a smidgen of the dye (start with dipping the end of a toothpick into the dye and adding it to a very small amount of wax and repeat until you get the color you want) - You can then paint with this wax until it solidifies, then remelt it or make another tiny batch

    What do you think of this meeting?

    Yes ma'am I do - I know it was hard - I don't know that I could have handled it that well - I would have wanted to go confront them personally and ended up ranting and raving and ended up having to come up with bail money lol - luckily I have my best half here and she is able to keep me out of trouble most of the time

    What do you think of this meeting?

    Well done Trappeur - I personally feel that you handled this sad situation in a very professional manner - I am sorry you have had to deal with all this but at least you got one decent order out of them to help make up for some of the time you have spent on them - as others have stated they are going to crash and burn swiftly if they believe they will be able to crank out a ton of product and wholesale them as quickly and easily as they seem to think - keep your head up and this will all soon just be another lesson learned
  6. Interesting - thanks for posting that

    Vanilla and Discoloration

    As I have mentioned before I am unable physically (and financially) to do anything except read right now - I know the best way to learn is by doing but it is what it is and I am trying to learn what I can the only way that I can - My experience has mainly been with candles although I did play around with M&P a little bit - I did love the results of the M&P compared to off the shelf soap as did everyone whom I gifted it to - I do remember the discoloration of Pink Sugar to a dark brown which is pretty much my entire personal experience of discoloration in soap - Everything I make, be it candles or soap or whatever I do test - I thank you both for your comments - I like learning! What are some of the other variables besides Vanillin that Can affect discoloration?
  10. Several questions if you please - I know that Vanillin can cause discoloration but over time does it cause discoloration in smaller amounts? What I mean is I have seen Vanillin listed at say 0.3% (just an example as I don't have specific numbers in front of me at the moment) and also seen notes on that fragrance stating there was no discoloration for that particular fragrance - I know that Vanillin listed at 17% is going to look like a bar of Hershey's Chocolate if a stabilizer or colorant is not added but is there some "unwritten rule of thumb" as to a when a percentage of Vanillan in a fragrance will cause discoloration or do you just have to try it and for yourself and see? Also I know other variables can cause discoloration - what other variables can cause discoloration? Thanks
  11. Thank you! Definitely interested in this one
  12. I am not seeing Love's Baby Soft anywhere - is it possibly Baby Fresh? Thanks
