Q: How many votives can I make with a pound of wax?
A. 8 2 ounce standard votives
Q: Which wax and wick should I use?
A. Picking your wax is a highly personal decision. Everyone has a different wax preference. Find the one that works for you, is fairly close to you, and work with it until you perfect it. As far as wicking, you must test, test, test to find the best wick for YOUR application.
Q: Can I use my pillar wax for votives?
A. Yes. Typically pillar waxes have a higher melt point than votive waxes but will make fine votives.
Q: Can I use a votive wax for pillars?
A. No. A wax meant strictly for votives has a lower melting point (typically in the 130 range) meant to liquefy quickly and will tunnel in a pillar.
Q: Can I test burn votives my votives in any container?
A. No. Votives need to be in a tight fitting container for a proper burn. Think of it as a container candle without the container.
