  1. Hi Everyone, New to candle making over the last 6 months and just getting the courage to start selling soon. I've been working with C3 for awhile now. The reason I use them is that I have a distributor that is close enough for me to go and pick it up instead of paying for shipping. I have a question for you that I hope you can answer... I am getting small bubbles forming after I have lit the candle. I am assuming this is a processing issue, but could be mistaken. I have attached a picture to show you what I mean. My parameters are rather simple: 6% FO C3 Wax No additives in this sample Container is 3.4" wide Process: Heat wax to 175F add FO at 150F Pour at 140F Thanks for your help in advance! Swix
  2. I made a few gel candles, one in a cylinder and a couple in wine glasses, and after a few days, I had these big flat bubbles around the sides about 1/4"-1/2" or so. Any idea why? It doesn't seem to happen in, say, a normal shaped candle jar, so I'm thinking it's the shape of the container but I can't see why it would even happen. Does gel shrink maybe? I used a heat gun on one and put one in the oven and they haven't come back, but I'm wondering now if I have to always do that. Thank you for any replies!
