  1. Past hour
  2. Everything is mixed in Pour pots. The way I quick cool my wax before pouring works best this way.
  3. Do you do everything by stirring in pouring pots-or you have large melting equipment/agitators/hoses for pouring etc?
  4. Today
  5. Does anyone know where I can find m 38 mottling wax? Carolina Supply is out of business as well as Tri State Candle Supply
  6. Lonestar has nice smells, but they just haven't worked for me in candles and melts. Everyone else loves them, so I'm sure it's just me.
  7. Yesterday
  8. I don't use that wax anymore because I couldn't get over the weird smell it has when burning (and the cure times were drastic with some scents), but when I did, I used to use CD10 mostly for a 8oz tin, which is about 3". But obviously FO's are gonna play a big part in what size will work best. I did not have much luck with other wick series.
  9. Hi! I'm Tracy! I'm having trouble wicking an 8 oz mason jar with Problend 600 wax. I've tried Eco 8 and 10 (both had really tall flames, deep pools w/in a couple ours, and just generally seemed overwicked), LX 16 and 18 (the LX 16 seemed the best, but I noticed some sooting around the top of the jar after about 3 hours of burning), and Premer 760 (seemed underwicked) and 765 (seemed overwicked). I'm completely lost. Any suggestions?

  11. have you tried smaller than the HTP 62? I guess I should ask firstly what size vessel you are using? I love the 6046. I'm using an HTP 62 in a 13 oz, 3 1/4" jar and it's perfect. Please provide more info and a pic of your container
  12. Thanks! I just wasn't sure that if I brought the heat back up to 185 degrees that the fragrance would break down.
  13. Depends on the size of the drum. If I can lift, then shake and pour into smaller bottles. If I can’t, then I have a pump to tap the keg.
  14. Generally speaking, no. Soy wax can only hold so much fragrance before it leaches out.
  15. I am new to candle making. When re-melting soy wax that has been fragranced and do I add more fragrance?
  16. I tested a few different percentages using 464 and Lab co coconut wax and settled on a 50/50 blend. The candles are smooth with EVERY burn down to your last burn. I first tried 80/20 blend, 464 at 80% and Lab co at 20%, cratering, uneven, just not to my liking. Ive also tried 40/60 and that worked well too. 50/50 is very is to calculate which is why I’m at that percentage.🌸
  17. Thanks- when you say “decant”, do you do anything special other than pouring it into a smaller, more manageable container?
  18. Butternut Pumpkin is the only oil I use from Lone Star. People love this one! It's actually the only pumpkin I found that smells like just pumpkin without all the spice notes in it. I also use it as a mixer.
  19. I too a, trying to find a cinnamon to replace TCS cinnamon stick. I will soon be out and the only one I found that compares is Keystones Red Hot Cinnamon. Now you have me curious about BCN.
  20. I bought a small bottle of the Christmas tree just to check if there was a change, and found no change in the oil.
  21. If it were possible, I would like, the candle fragrance companies to have ads on the right-hand side of the page so we could easily click through to their websites when someone mentions their company. Since a number of members use abbreviations, it would be nice to also have a "key" at the top of the list of ads so those of us who can't remember anything (me), would know that, say, "CRA" refers to the "Can't Remember Anything" fragrance company. (That isn't a priority; I should just do this myself and print it off.) GoldieMN
  22. ZOMG I know what you mean. I'd shut ads down hard and fast if that were to happen. thanks for bringing this up!
  23. Do it!!! You have to deal with the kvetching and cranky PMs. Personally, I don't care what the group does as long as it doesn't become a fully sponsored board where the only products you can discuss are the sponsors'. My ONLY other concern in having the suppliers as sponsors is that there may be expectations that all input about their products be positive and without constructive criticism. I'm on a FB group where you can only praise the sponsor and only talk about the sponsor. It gets rather old, and mewling sycophants annoy me.
  24. It is possible. It depends on the placement of the specific ads. Each ad gets "impressions" and "click through" statistics. Each ad generates its own pittance of revenue. I'd rather set up partnerships with suppliers and members to let this community help us, versus random AdSense people. I have been seeing political ads, which disappoints me terribly. candles, soap, supplies and member goodies whether related or not would keep this place happier.
  25. Does it have to be one or the other? Is a combination possible? It would be the best of both worlds for advertising revenue.
