  1. I've done it a couple of times and have never been "burned" per se but I've never come out ahead either. Between ruined and lost merchandise, stock that sits and sits (my money and time), and the store's inevitable closing, the consignor doesn't stand much of a chance. However, if you happen to find the magic combination, it can work. It is a learning experience, that's for sure. I will never do it again but I am glad that I did try it.
  2. I use C3 and ECO's. I've only dabbled in double wicking but when I do play around with it, I always start with ECO 4 and go from there.
  3. It is best not to reply at all. You are just confirming that they have a valid email address if you reply. Delete, delete, delete.
  4. Off the top of my head, three of the strongest that I use from CandleScience are Hazelnut Coffee, Very Vanilla and Pumpkin Souffle.
  5. I use C3 and my candles are kickbutt strong. I usually use 1.25 - 1.5 pp depending on the oil. I use Eco wicks. Not all FOs will take the same wick size even in the same container so you might want to buy a sample pack. Make sure you cure your candle before burning. I usually try to cure a week if I can.
  6. You can't expect instant success. It takes years to build a following and a business.
  7. I use C-3 which is similar to 464 and I make chunk candles all the time. I let the overpour wax cool to 145 before pouring. They don't bleed when you pour them but they bleed after a few weeks.
  8. Wicking the jars. Ordering supplies (and paying for them). Trying to guess what the public wants to buy.
  9. It was fine for me too. Did you try a different browser? Sometimes that makes a difference.
  10. And I would recommend that you pick just one of those three containers to play around with first. Once you get the hang of wicking that one with different scents the others will be easier. You will drive yourself crazy testing three different containers with varying fragrances.
  11. I would try one size down. If your wick is too big, it can drown also because it just tunnels down to fast and drowns. I use Eco wicks a lot. They shouldn't drown with a 1/4 inch trim.
  12. Maybe its my area but I have never had a problem with a Scentsy rep. They are just regular people as far as I can tell. I'm sure some are jerks but I've seen plenty of jerks selling at craft shows who have nothing to do with Scentsy.
  13. I always save my labels as a PDF on my hard drive. Then when I want to print, I just print from Adobe. I only use Maestro to create a new label so I'm not sure how it works if you just want to print directly from Maestro.
