    It took me long enough to make one, but now it's here! My original design beeswax skull candle! I'm currently burn testing it, but I'm going to hazard a guess of 4.5 - 5 hours. It weighs in a just under 1.7 ounces. I love how much burn time you can get from such a small amount of beeswax!

    I ordered direct from the manufacturer- precision wick and the minimum was 5000 many of my containers were in between a 9 and 12 and despite candlescience saying they didn’t see much difference fro the 11 and 12, I have so if your ever needing any let me know - they were a great price for that many 🤷‍♀️

    Thanks @TallTayl yes, no neck. 3” wide 4” tall The good news is I have plenty of 12 and 14. I put in a 9 earlier today and let it burn for 4 hours. The throw was exponentially better than with the other wick series I’ve tried. It burned to maybe 80% melt pool in that time. Looks like I’m on the right track, thanks to you, with this wick series.

    @Laura C I've considered dying the beeswax before, but since the wax is natural I dont want to introduce any of those dyes used for soy or paraffin. They would mask the natural beeswax scent, especially since my candles are pretty small. Using "natural" dyes is a crap shoot. They are way more expensive, plus you have to compensate for the natural color of the wax. Too much work for too little return in my opinion.

    Fill the interior with red wax and it would look like it's bleeding. http://www.candlesandsupplies.net/How-to-Make-a-Bleeding-Skull-Candle

    @kandlekrazy I agree Candle Science lavender is really great. I had a sample from the last sale, and made a candle and a room spray, both were wonderful.

    Since this is a very important aspect of our craft, just wanted to add another source and additional information to this Candle Safety discussion for anyone interested. Many of you will know this stuff already but for those that don't, happy reading. http://candles.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Candle-Elements-Safety-Infographic.pdf https://candles.org/fire-safety-candles/ https://candles.org/fire-safety-candles/read-the-label/ https://candles.org/tips-from-the-experts/

    I wouldn't use them. Then again, if the jars were made outside the US, I'd be curious about the lead content (and other nasties) in the coating/paint used to create the mercury finish and what would be released by heating it.
