Q:How do I figure out how much 6% is?
A:Lets say you have a pound of wax and and 1 ounce of FO. That's 17 ounces. 1 ounce divided by 17 ounces =.0588 or 5.88%. A hair short of 6%. For most uses, that's fine. For large batches, this might make a difference. I use the formula 6.4% of wax weight for 6% of total weight (comes out to 5.99%) and 8.7% of wax weight for 8%.
