  1. Thanks, SRez! It is enough to drive one completely nuts and question everything! I am experiencing the same thing with the mushrooming. My blend is 50:50 para soy and the 760 is mushrooming like crazy and dimming the flame... I don’t trim while testing but the 767 is looking good although slightly too big a flame. Going to try another 765 now. Ugh!
  2. Hi! I have been testing with premier wicks purchased from Aztec last month. I am testing the same wax, same vessel, with a 760 and a 765... and the flame on the 765 is smaller than the 760. I have tried multiple wicks from this package and all have smaller flames than the 760. Just curious if anyone else’s wick testing has been completely thrown off by this as well? Thanks!
  3. Hi all! I live in Los Angeles and would love to use a local supplier for my wax. I am interested in the #12 veggie/soy/para blend from California Candle Supply. I am currently mixing my own soy and paraffin. Has anyone here tried the #12? I have reached out to them asking what percentage of soy to paraffin this particular blend is made up of but haven’t heard back yet. In the meantime, I wanted to know if any of you have experience with it. Thanks!
  4. Hello Everyone! I am selling everything listed below. I do not want to separate the items. I am selling them as an entire lot. Everything was purchased within the last three months and I am selling them because I have narrowed down the fragrance oils I will be using. They are .3oz sample sizes and 1oz and 2 oz sizes. All items have been opened in order to sniff and only nine of them have been partially used for testing purposes. I have noted below the ones that have been used. I am selling the entire lot for $210 and I will pay for the shipping within the United States. This is a gre
  5. It reminds me of this one from Alibaba but I don’t see the purple option. Ill keep my eyes peeled. https://www.alibaba.com/pla/Custom-logo-home-wedding-decoration-3_62519409749.html?mark=google_shopping&biz=pla&src=sem_ggl&mark=shopping&cmpgn=11637237034&adgrp=120122066104&locintrst=&locphyscl=9031201&ntwrk=u&device=c&dvcmdl=&position=&pla_adtype=&pla_mrctid=254529816&pla_channel=online&pla_prdid=62519409749&pla_country=US&pla_lang=en&pla_group=298190246337&pla_localcode=&gclid=CjwKCAiAyc2BBhAaEiwA44-wW_ZyI9aS8f2SM
  6. Sounds lovely! I like Morning Dew. Some other ideas could be: Fresh Air, Brisk Walk, First Rain, Morning Mist, Breath of Air Hope this helps or sparks some more ideas!
  7. I am so happy I could provide a little peace and levity. I am new to candle making and my god, I have never felt such levels of frustration (besides my first marriage!)... but I love it! And I keep coming back for more. And quite frankly, candle making has saved me during quarantine. So glad to be here. ❤️
  8. After another frustrating (yet enlightening) day of testing, this tiny figure sitting cross legged appeared in my mushroom looking so zen like and calm... At first I was annoyed but how could I stay mad at such a meditative mushroom?
  9. Hi! Thank you so much for sharing your process. I have four more pounds of it sitting here so I will give that a try. Right now I am working with 6006 and doing my best to learn how it behaves... I had to pick a wax and just commit. Trying too many things at once gets overwhelming. So far I am liking the 6006 especially now that we are getting acquainted! How are you liking the SB1000 in terms of hot throw and wicking?
  10. Thank you so much, TallTayl! Yea, it feels super plasticky. I am shocked that this is described as a single pour container wax... I much prefer the other waxes I have worked with but I may just go ahead and try that second pour to see what happens. I appreciate your feedback.
  11. Hi all! I began my candle making journey last month and I am now a woman obsessed. I have worked with C3, 464, IGI 6006 and PB 600. I like the 464 with ECO and HTP wicks and made a dozen successful candles with it BUT I prefer the look and hot throw of the 6006 and 600. If I had to play favorites, I’d say 600 because I am finding it easier to wick and a nice happy medium. So, of course, I got curious and wanted to try a soy blend from General Wax in California because I can pick it up in person and avoid the shipping fees from Flaming Candle. Well, I picked up 8 lbs of their SB1000 yesterday.
