  1. Hello- Does anyone have a starting point on wicking the apothecary jar using 6006? The jars are currently the thin walled jars. I would rather singe wick if possible, but I am open on a starting point for double wicking also. TIA.
  2. No- its not freshly poured. I actually made it a few years ago and it was in my basement along with other testers. I believe you all matched my thoughts on this, since this jar is around 3 1/2 inches in diam, there is no need to worry about even seeing the liquid side view portion of the MP in the first half of the burn. As long as it reaches from edge to edge, it will go down. With this one, Trapp - yes - the throw had the burnt smell thing going on. So...you all have confirmed some things for me. Thanks a bunch. Now, Off to testing.
  3. Hello All, Could someone please give an opinion on this candle. Wax is 6006. Wick is CD18. Jar is 18 oz Salsa Jar. Fragrance is Black Cherry, 6%. Candle had been burning for 3 1/2 hours, and the previous test burns has been around the 3 - 4 hour mark. There is still a small amount of hang up on the one side, which I am confident can catch up as the candle burns down. Also, the flame is tall as can be in 3 hours even after trimming. The jar is black as you can see. This wax is simply add color and scent, needing nothing more. CD12 - CD 16 rendered no FMP in 3-4 hours of course. Are the flames too high because I still need to move up in size? This wax reminds me of how 4630 acts. Can someone please tell me...What exactly is the issue in this scenario?
  4. Hello everyone...Thanks Trappeur. I appreciate your generous thoughtfulness. Sarah S- Yes, I do love fruity scents. --As for the Citrus Odor Eliminator- I will also put it on my CS List of FO's to order so I can test it. I do need one that really is true to its name. -- As for Tomato Leaf - hmmm..if it was a dud in 4630...it may not be too promising in 464. --Fruit Slices I had from NG..but got the dreaded fuel grill burning smell. - I had ordered a candle from someplace a while ago - I cant remember the name of the place but their 8oz Apothecary Jars were frosted. I had ordered I think it was a Pink Lemonade. The cold throw was nice, but when I burned it, it smelled like fuel. I thought to myself, I would never sell a fuel smelling candle. But then, maybe everyone don't smell the fuel. Its crazy...but anyway I guess it's a Citrus thing.
  5. TT - I imagine no fuel smell noted with this one ?
  6. Hello Everyone - So I am looking to purchase FO's and will be using 464. Does anyone have any review on the following scents from The Flaming Candle - If any on this list throws like a baseball pitcher, but from another place - please list it. I have never ordered from here before and I must, must order more but different FO's before I have a breakdown!! I appreciate all your help. TIA. Blue Raspberry Jolly Rancher Strawberry Lemon Ice Citrus Odor and Eliminator Pear Spice Sweet Strawberry - I would like to use this in Soap and Candles if possible. Blueberry Cobbler Honey Suckle - In search of a Real scent that is not overbearingly head achy strong - but nice, light and springy. Sugar Cookie Royale Apple Cider Donut Caramel Apple Fruit Slices - does this have a fuel smell? Nag Champa Pear Spice Pineapple Cilantro Rose - I'm looking for a Real Fresh Cut Bouquet Wiffy Type of Scent. Not the strong overbearing head achy type. Tomato Leaf Lavender Chamomile
  7. Ok - I will definitely check them out.
  8. Hello... With all this soy craziness sweeping the Handmade nation....makes me wonder if the big dogs are paying the Regulators to force manufacturers to mess up the formulas for the Handmade Nation due to the fact the handmade nation is on the rise with better smelling and better burn quality products? Has any of us been told " Yours smell better than ...the Big Y Dogs? I have...with my still in the testing stage self. I mean for goodness sake there is plenty $$ to go around. Why break something that is fine?? --- SMH - My question is tho...we know the down low on soy - with all the changes in burn quality and reporting it, yet we are told that nothing is wrong -- SO....that tells me - we that actually test is just a little bit crazy...."OOKKKAAYYY" So my question is --since paraffin candle nation was probably affected due to -- SOOTING Stories, and Black Jars--- and the rest of the bullcrap that can also happen with SOY and COCONUT and any candle if the wick is not trimmed properly, or wrong wick type and of course if the candle burns in excess....... And ask me HOW I KNOW!!! My Question is:::: Since soy suddenly became the -BIG EPIDEMIC- from the Introduction and Promotion of it -- up to the Last 2 Year DOWNFALL-- and now - onto the Promotion / Introduction of Coconut Wax...NO??? .... has anyone had any really bad experiences with the Paraffin Wax - 4630, 4627, 4786 or any others -- where in it has had a huge impact on your candle making process??
  9. Hello - Does anyone that have smelled Peaks Botanical Orchard and Nectar in the past know where I can find a dupe of this scent? TIA
  10. Thanks. The burning qualities is driving me nuts.
  11. Hello....I am back into testing again and am wondering. I just purchased a block of 4627. The throw is out of this world I do agree, but in the Jelly Jar, which wick wont have the appearance that it is going out? I mean there is a full MP about 1/4 - 1/2 inch deep but the LX wick appears to just Mushroom real bad and the flame dies down as if it will go out. I must admit that the smallest LX that I have is the LX 16, but would it be worth my while to purchase LX 14 if the LX 16 already looks weak and dying? This also happened with the 44 zinc wick. They say it doesn't need additives, but I dont know. I did add an 8% FO load to it. I will pour a candle wax only and see. I would like to use it due to the throw, but the non vibrant dying flame after 3-4 hours is very dis-heartening. But any wick, additive or process suggestions that anyone would be willing to help me out with - I would greatly appreciate. Thanks
  12. Ok - thanks. I will check out Camden Grey. Thanks.
  13. Sorry - I was searching for the essential oil. But I am willing to try a Lavender fragrance if it is a good one. I just need it to be just strong enough - but not overbearing.
