    Heat Gun Alternatives?

    Here's the rotating platform I found that I think will work: http://a.co/d/gNhG5NM Also tagged a lab stand (http://a.co/d/4M6LUOE) to tie the heat gun to. Perhaps there is a better support for this??

    Heat Gun Alternatives?

    I really like your heat gun rotation thing, so I'm eager to see what you are building. I already have items for the turntable in my Amazon basket. I almost wonder if a standard heat lamp would work better than a heat gun (same turntable idea though). I love DIYing this sort of stuff too.

    Label advice and feedback

    Yeah I can fit it in somewhere. Thanks for all the feedback. Do most people print their own warning labels? May be worth moving the weight to that and swapping the website in on the main label. Maybe I’ll go looking on Etsy to see what other folks do.

    Label advice and feedback

    I don't mind this look, but I do wonder if I should include something with a website once that is up and running. I must say most of the ones I see at craft fairs don't have that info on the label, mostly they just include business cards with the info on them.

    Ahh that is a good point. Hmmm need to think about that.

    I have my city. That was all that I was planning to put on it.

    Well I finally potted up a candle to give away and figured I would take a picture of it and post it. Overall, I'm happy with it. I do feel like the front is a bit busy.

    Candlewic New Fragrances

    I'm burning a candle of the Mulberry Spice now, and I must say the HT is pretty weak. Smells great OOB and CT....too bad as I love the berry spice scents.

    Pouring Temperature Mysteries

    I actually add my oil to an empty pour pot and then pour in my hot wax from another pour pot. Once all the wax has been added, I swirl it around for a little bit until it looks mixed, cool it down to 145 and then pour. I do have cavity issues around the wick that I'm trying to work out, but everything else seems to be good.

    Candle Science Pumpkin Chai

    Okay after going back and burning more of the Pumpkin Chai from CS, I must admit I'm not a fan. Very strong HT, but overpowering spice. Candlewic will be my next attempt.

    Candlewic New Fragrances

    Throw is great, but I use IGI 4630 wax. Again, as I said in the other thread, I don't have any other TM fragrances to reference this one to, I just know I like it and will use it regularly.

    As I mentioned in another post, I really like ICS' Toasted Marshmallow.

    Flaming candle FO order

    The Tobacco caramel is great and unique. Supernova (as Sarah said) is good too. Here are a few others I've tried and like: Georgia Peach Apple Ginger Crust Nag Champa Mahogany Coconut I have a bunch more in the hopper, but in general they have good stuff.

    Label advice and feedback

    Those are really good Stanford. I'm thinking of stories like those on the website, but maybe on the label, just a short, 3-4 word expression about the scent. For example "Toasted Marshmallows: Gooey Campfire Goodness", or something like that.
