  1. Some does swirl around. You could essentially use a thin dipped taper candle as the wick for some fun effects like bleeding.

  2. Interesting. I can see the appeal of that combo, or using it for other colors too. But it also makes me wonder what if you left your wax uncolored and just primed the wick with color? Would the wick color bleed into the wax when it burns and what kind of visual would that create? Something pretty or something ugly or muddy looking? And what if you could prime the wick every few milimeters with a new color? or simply use one color but deeper shades along the wick as it burns towards the bottom?

  4. What a crazy year 2020 was. Not sure how I managed that many sales. Just over 2 months 2300+ sales. As of right now I have no open orders on any of my ecommerce sites. Deep Breath... Now to keep things lively I sold my house and bought a new one. 4 years ago I moved and I said I would never move the business again. WELL, here I go again. I wish I knew how to sit still for a bit.

  5. FYI: I spent hours this last week going thru all my CS 1oz-1lb bottles and checking past orders. Altho each FO page will tell you the date it was reformulated - if I click on the FO in my past orders a page will come up “discontinued” if I have the “old” formulation. Ended up with 15 sample bottles and 5-4 oz bottles. I’m hoarding my pound bottles of discontinued FO but if anyone is interested in trying to dupe - I’m in and will be happy to contribute.

  6. If I was selling candles I would be obsessive about things like that, but I am very careful about burning my candles, I always put them on silicone and give them space. I suspect that the wick sticker raised the wick a little and insulated it, so I may get drift, but I'll be ready if I do. I had drift in a store bought candle a while back and it left the flame sitting on the glass, that's not safe.

  8. All of my palm container candles are layered and most of my palm pillars. I usually do just two layers because it's easier, but I have done 3-4, just depends. I've played around with it a bit in other waxes but prefer using palm for layers.

  9. Yes. Lots of times but mostly for specialty candles like holiday or valentine theme candles, etc. I usually do 3 scents in 3 different colors. I try to put together FOs that work together as well as colors that compliment each other. You can do in horizontal or vertically slanted pours. One of my favorite candles was a rustic paraffin pillar in 3 different berry type scents; cranberry, blackberry, and cherry? I think. Instead of doing 3 different colors the candle scents were made in the same red berry color but in varying depths of color. The cranberry was a lighter reddish color,
