Gelly Wax?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I've been making paraffin candles for quite some time and I want to add some fun, gelatinous texture to the tops of my dessert candles.

I'm a newbie to gel; I bought "Gelly Wax" from Amazon, ugh. I'm having a heck of a time getting the gel to even remotely stick to the paraffin. After many relentless attempts today, I ordered some Penreco medium density.

Can anyone tell me how Penreco gel differs? I'm assuming and hoping it's better!

Any dessert chandlers out there have advice I would immensely appreciate it!

Thanks!

Actually it sounds like you are pouring to cool. The heat from the gel pour should melt the paraffin just as bit and cause adhesion.

 

actually Gelly wax is low density gel wax. Not much good for anything but plain gel candles.

I received and tried my Penreco medium density; the difference is astonishing!

This gel is AWESOME; I also poured at a hotter temp (thanks Vicky), the gel sticks beautifully to the paraffin, no issues!

For anyone else contemplating the purchase of 'Gelly Wax' for drizzling application, don't! Use Penreco medium or high density!
