  1. I failed a bit on this one. I made the walls too long and the corners are a bit too narrow, but my next design should work I think.
  2. I've always had my own version. TTA = Time Travel Agency (not real - obviously, but to state.) My sci-fi... We are all time travelers. Actions are constantly playing out and time is constantly moving forward (not talking about how humans measure time such as seconds, minutes, hours, and/or days). The agency (fake) or the time travel agency (fake) was created to stop custom time travel and/or the ability to time travel to any point at any time. One moment I left the toaster on in 2238 A.D. and I completely forgot about that. I have to leave for now. I quit the sci-fi stuff years back though myself. I don't own a TV and I don't watch doctor who. I always did like that box though. Got a castle candle design coming along as well as another design to as well for now.
  3. The candle is blue to make it easier to see. It should be white though. I missed one part on the top right.
  4. I'm a guy (straight - so obviously don't have those around for whatever reason) myself and I'd have to order something like that off amazon if I were to go that route. Don't want to order nylon stockings though to clean the candles. I don't want 10 of those laying around as I've lost the first 9 then have someone come over and the other 9 randomly appear to them as a single straight guy myself. Even if I say "I promise I don't wear these and these are for cleaning candles only" I still don't want to explain it over and over again as a story. It's also not something I'd see in the long run myself. I could 3D print in nylon and try that route to as well. Not a bad idea, but I'd want something more that I could have around long term. Rather than having like a collection of 50-100 nylon stockings at some point down the road. Have a box or a tub of old ones and someone is helping me move and they drop the box which reveals roughly 50-100 nylon stockings. I'm a button down shirt type of guy. I just really like candles or candle making. I'm somewhat eccentric myself at least, but having nylon stockings around would be pushing it completely especially if I did collect a large collection over time. Not a bad idea though just wouldn't fit with me as a guy.
  5. Is there a way to clean the white residue or white powder off the candles that come out of the candle molds? I think it's the spray (candle remover spray to remove candles out of candle molds) I'm using that heats up then dries to leave a white residue on the outside of a candle. I want to soak the candles in luke warm water for a while and give that a try. The candle wax I use is paraffin wax that's very hard and it won't break easily. It's one of the candle waxes you can drop and nothing really happens or it won't break for the most part even or even chip. Anyone know?
  6. One website says 145-150F Another says 140F-165F Another says 175F-185F Another say 160F One of the other ones says 175F-185F as well. I can never tell myself.
  7. I did this one to as well. I know why they are failing to as well. It's strange I wanted to know how to make my candle wax a bit harder. I'm basically using a brick candle wax currently that I can't break easily and I found out the blue dye block I'm using makes it stickier. I had more success on this candle, but this candle failed as well. It's due mostly to how sticky the blue dye block is melted in with the candle wax. The blue dye in the candle wax sticks to the mold more and I have to make sure I'm not using too much as well as applying my mold release spray at the right time to as well. This second time it should work out just fine.
  8. I live in a cold climate (almost in an arctic tundra realm even if just at times) and yesterday the high was -1F/-2F (around here) and the low was -15/-20F. It gets extremely dry here to as well when it's this cold out. I buy soap that has 1/4th lotion in the final product. I'm wondering is it easy to add that amount of lotion into a bar of soap? I make candles usually, but was kind of curious about soap making.
  9. I am trying to get into more complex designs and the candle I made didn't work out at all for the most part. I made multiple mistakes during the process of making my candle. Decided I would share anyways. My candle didn't work out properly for the most part. I know I messed up making the candle. It's not the worlds worse candle though I figure myself. The top turned out fine, but it was the sides that I screw up on a bit.
  10. I had to finish some stuff yesterday and I even took the photos, but I forgot to upload them. These are quick photos I took, but it should explain how to use the tool well enough.
  11. I'll get a picture or two. It's pretty simple once you've seen it set up.
  12. You were technically right. I uploaded the wrong file. Mine is supposed to be a .98. The one I uploaded is 1.00. Going to fix this thanks.
  13. May not be anything incredible, but I thought I might share. This is the first time I've used a color other than white and a scent to as well. The scent is almost perfect. I used a measuring tea spoon and I need to added two more next time (one for each candle) to stir in. My melt pool almost worked out perfectly to as well for the first one. Again nothing special, but I thought I'd share. 1. White Dye Block 2. Blue Dye Block - Going to make them navy blue or some dark blue next time. 3. French Vanilla (Scent) 4. Blessed Exorcism Salts added
  14. You can either make it thinner by taking off an outer edge in some cad(d) program or sand it down with some sand paper. I print this at fine detail myself though since it's a tool as well. I sanded down mine with some sand paper though to make it fit better.
  15. Oh ok. I wasn't sure. You can also set wicks very fast if you know how to use the candle centering tool that I created. Set the pins in originally and you can do 10 large jars in probably a minute or so if not in less time than that. All you have to do is lift it up and put a new wick in the center then glue (stickers) it then place it again and only move it like an inch each time.
