    Palm wax shrinkage

    I set them on the cookie rack; however, I place a thick layer of paper towels and a styrofoam on top of the rack, and then put my jars on that. I guess I should not do that? Right?

    Palm wax shrinkage

    I did something wrong. The bottom got solid before the top. Do you all wrap your jars &/or place them under something so the cool slow?

    Palm wax shrinkage

    I can do it. It is the easiest method. Do both of you use dye. I also use clear jars but i can never see that doggone air bubble even with a flash light

    Palm wax shrinkage

    Of all the methods this is the easiest and less time consuming.

    Palm wax shrinkage

    I know the flip action makes sense in theory, but I guess my only concern is the air bubbles are still there. Suppose the bottom sets before it's time to flip. How can you tell where the bubble is?
  7. Does anyone use wood wicks or ribbon wicks which their palm wax? I am testing wood and it makes my wax soot and turn really dark

    Palm wick testing

    Thanks everybody. I appreciate you guys so much. So I will do full jars, wait 3 to 5 days before testing.. Also, I was planning on not doing dye and FO doing my testing. Is anything wrong with that? One other thing, when testing do you ever make the candle without the wick and then once it is hard, insert the wick. And if that wick does not work right off, take the wick out, insert a different wick and hot gun the top so its even. I did that with coconut wax and it was easier OR should I just test it all the way to the end and then make another candle if it does not work. I know palm is a different character, so I want to make sure do it correctly.
  10. If i just want to test wicks: 1. Can i make half jar candle? 2. Do i still need tobwait 3 to 5 days before I test?

    Palm wax shrinkage

    I have a question about the flip method. I notice the bottom of my jars get hard tgen the top. If i flip won't the air pockets be closer to the middle?
