  1. I think when I go to Target again I'll pick one up (I just don't frequent that store). Just wondering if anyone has tried the Mrs. Meyers candles. Not sure how they can sell these 8 oz recycled glass jars with soy wax & EO's for under $8 but they may just kill off some of our candle makers market sales here. Question is, do they burn well and actually have a hot throw?

    GW 444 and cold and hot throw issue

    I tried to work with that wax and eventually gave up. Sorry, I know some have success with it but I had very little. Guess it depends on the level of frustration you are at with it. I'd look for a different wax that was available in your area even try 464. All soy has issues but that one almost made me jump off the pier with cement boots. I'm glad I switched and tried other waxes.

    Label advice and feedback

    Great Job. Love the color it pops. I'd also love to see them on a jar now!

    C3 best wick

    Try the cotton core especially with those tough scents just don't over wick or you'll get soot. These tend to mushroom as well but usually small and way better than no HT.

    They are really so much fun. Mine broke but I asked Santa for a new one. Look on Pinterest, so many ideas your head will spin!

    Candle Makers FO recommendations

    I have a lot of oils from them. Off hand, Monkey Farts and Stargazer Lily are among my biggest sellers. White Tea & Ginger, Sweet Pea & Carmel Coffee are all really good as well. I used to love the Lavender but they changed it, it's ok now not great. I'm sure I have way more good ones but my memory is failing me right now.

    Video discussion

    I'm baffled. The first video makes some sense but goes against everything I was ever taught. I'm going to test this in C3 with a scent that I know does not throw well just for my own curiosity. The no cure time though or little cure time I know I've tested that 1000 times and the longer they sit the better they throw so??? Maybe 464 or whatever he was using. 2nd video, the all Organic, really?????????
  11. no it's Universal Soy Additive. It hardens the wax a bit, supposed to help with adhesion (not so much) and tops are smoother.
  12. I don't typically color because of frosting or blotching but decided to color those mini mason jars just so you could see the word Love on them better. I'm using only essential oils in those and dying pastel but dang I have not seen any frosting. I had them sit at least a month before putting them out to sell, I can't say what would happen after 2 months because I only made 8 and they were gone in a month. I used liquid dye and USA in my C3. I haven't had time to get back into candle making for the past 3 months but when I do I'm going to try red and brown which notoriously frost.

    Copycats, etsy and assorted insanities.

    Etsy is tough because so saturated but can be done. I'd suggest going to social media to promote your etsy shop. You can do it in Instagram and Facebook. Link your accounts so you're posting only once and goes to both accts. Then be sure you're Etsy store is listed in both of those accounts.

    Moisture in C3

    Are you cooling it completely before putting lid on? I let mine sit 24 hours.

    Hi from the UK

    Hi & Welcome!! You probably won't have a ton of choices there in soy but it's all a matter of working with what you have until you are happy with the results.
