    Pouring Temperature Mysteries

    Great questions, Quentin. I've noticed this as well, since I'm new to the game, and I've been heating the wax to 185/190 degrees. I poured those candles a week ago, so I could test one tonight and see how it does...

    Candle Containers

    I haven't, but I was introduced to them on another candle making forum (one on Reddit). A user there said he'd ordered them, but he hadn't used them yet. The containers are beautiful, but expensive.

    Flaming candle FO order

    I've tried TFC's Smoking Vanilla, and it's too smoky for me. I think it needs more vanilla, and less smoky. I use 6006 or C3 wax, if that helps. I'm interested in their Asian Sandalwood, too. I ordered more sample wicks for testing, and bigger bottles of Caribbean Salsa and Egyptian Amber.
