  1. Holy cow @candlesinflorida, those are some huge candles. LOL
  2. Me too, me too. When I get back to making container candles, I want to make some with different layers of color and scents. I want to make some like these. https://library.rusticescentuals.com/layered-mason-jar-candle-tutorial/ https://www.soapqueen.com/bath-and-body-tutorials/home-crafts/lavender-vanilla-geometric-candle/ https://candletech.com/candle-making/tutorials/candy-corn-candles/ https://candletech.com/candle-making/tutorials/layered-chocolate-peppermint-candle/ https://candletech.com/candle-making/tutorials/tilted-layers/ https://candletech.com/stars-stripes-candles/
  3. Awh, I see what you mean. That's a good point but I have never used them.
  4. I keep my cardboard boxes that have the dividers too, they're so handy. You and this post just gave me an idea, don't know why I never thought of it before. You can use those boxes with the dividers just like those restaurant racks. Why not? Next time I make candles, I need to try it. I don't normally have much trouble with wet spots though. I've been using either baking sheets or melamine serving trays padded/insulated with old towels so the candles aren't setting on a cold surface.
  5. Hello @sweetwomen. I don't have any answers for you but you could look at these sources, they have tutorials for stuff like that. http://www.candlesandsupplies.net/Classes-FREE-Projects https://www.theflamingcandle.com/the-classroom/ https://peakfragrances.com/pages/tutorials https://www.candlewic.com/education/education/page.aspx?id=1875 And also do a search on YouTube, I bet you'll find someone making the same thing you want to make.
  6. LOL, gosh I love Links! Using links and copy and paste are fabulous, can't do without them.
  7. Hi @candlesinflorida Seems like white or white frosted jars are hard to find. CAS in PA http://www.candlesandsupplies.net/Candle-Making/Straight-Sided-Tumblers Aztec in TN https://www.candlemaking.com/newglass/all-new-glass.html NY https://www.sks-bottle.com/340c/fin30047.html https://www.sks-bottle.com/340c/fin149f.html
  8. Yes, I'm in Pompano Beach, near Fort Lauderdale.
  9. Thanks for sharing @blacktieaffair. Yes, I've seen Timber Ridge Gifts and his videos, he has some good ones. Especially in some of his earlier videos, he can be funny and I don't know if he is even trying to be. I bought a few of his candles and wax melts and they were really nice and strong.
  10. Hi @candlesinflorida, I'm in FL too, aren't we lucky? LOL. Anyway, the odd smelling candles you are referring to, did you use liquid dye in them? Reason I ask is because I get a plastic/chemical sort of smell from my wax melts, whether I use soy or paraffin, and it's coming from the horrible stench of the liquid dye that I used in them. This includes wax melts I made in plastic clamshells and also loose wax melts. Needless to say, I'm not going to use that particular liquid dye anymore.
  11. That's interesting and something to consider. Looks like a good idea as long as it doesn't adversely effect jar adhesion. Looks like it would allow the candles to cool slowly and evenly and maybe put a piece of cardboard over the top too. IDK, just thinking out loud. LOL
