  1. Seems like a good idea, don't see any harm in it. You gotta do what you can to "keep the lights on", LOL. I like checking out people's websites and businesses, it's interesting to see people's ideas, tastes and talents. I don't have a business to advertise yet but I'm working on it. 😊
  2. Wow! Some people will sell anything I guess. "Yarn", looks like they are using yarn as the wicks? They just act like it's a regular candle and It's Not. LOL. I thought maybe they were intentionally doing wacky candles and would describe it as such but they seem serious. Wow! 😄
  3. I don't even know where to begin. I just keep staring at them in a daze. 😵 LOL What do they say about them on their website? What kind of description do they give? This is wacky stuff.
  4. I sure like 4625 by itself, never mixed it with 464, could be fun.
  5. You could try a few different percentages of the parasoy mixed with the 464 and see what happens. Might make a great combo. Or add beeswax, don't be afraid to experiment, that's part of the fun. 👩‍🔬 🕯️
  6. Awesome, they look great to me too, and I second what the others said. You get melts like that without soot and hot jars, those are winners in my book. 👍
  7. Awesome, all that info is great to know. Thanks for pursuing it and for sharing. 👍 I have not tried their wax yet but I just may have to.
  8. Congrats, they look neat, I like the designs. Just wondering, do you get a nice, wide melt pool with only 1 wick? It's kinda hard to tell how wide the candle is.
  9. Hi @crescentridge and welcome to Craft Server, you'll find a lot of helpful people and great information here. What Sebleo said about soy wax frosting is correct and I'll add to it. When I have made soy wax candles, I didn't dye them or did very pale pastel colors so the frosting wouldn't show. Some people on here have tricks for minimizing the frosting but I don't think you can completely eliminate it unless you do a very low percentage of soy in your wax blend. Do some searching on here for "frosting". There is nothing wrong with the frost, it's a natural characteristic of soy waxes and it doesn't effect scent throw or performance. Seems like you either love it and embrace it or you hate it and constantly fight it or avoid soy wax, LOL. It can be a selling point to show that your candles are actually made with Soy.
  10. Those are so cute, great job, I'm sure they will love them. 🏄‍♂️ 🌴🏖️
  11. I don't have much experience with wood wicks and it's been along time since I used any. Here's some links to other wood wick posts that may be helpful to you once you start testing.
  12. Thanks for the reminder, I remember seeing this wick in the past. It looks awesome, I've been wanting to try it out.
  13. Hi @Lady Loki and welcome to Craft Server. Here's a link to the Suppliers By State List that CaptnKush mentioned. It's a very handy list and I certainly use it to locate suppliers as close to me as possible. The less I spend on shipping, the more products I can buy, LOL. 😄 Once you start exploring and searching on the site you will see that there is a lot of great information on here.
  14. I guess it's been about 2 years since I ordered the coconut slab wax from C&S and at that time a person there told me that it had some beeswax in it and that's what made it different from the Easy Beads. I liked the wax just fine and it was different than Easy Beads and it had a different smell of course. The thing I didn't like about the coconut slab wax was how the beeswax or etc. made the FOs smell. The same FO in Easy Beads smelled quite a bit different in the Coconut slab wax and I preferred the scent in the Easy Beads wax. Who knows if it still has beeswax in it or not? You would have to contact them to find out. I don't remember if both of the waxes have paraffin or not.
  15. Hey, I've got coconut trees in my yard, LOL. 🥥 I've not actually researched it but sounds like you would get a plain or straight wax of your choice such as paraffin, palm, beeswax, soy or coconut and then start adding other waxes or additives to it until you find a blend you like. It would be time consuming but worth it in the long run I guess, especially if you have a business that depends on a stable and constant supply of product.
