  1. The saga continues. . . I've been testing 464 in an attempt to get a better hot throw as compared to 415. I'm confused on the pour temp. With 415, I followed instructions to pour at 110 which was the slushy stage. With 464, I'm seeing recommendations from 170 to 135, many again saying "slushy". My 464 is not slushy at any of these temps until it gets to about 100. So should I be pouring when slushy or when the wax gets to a particular temperature? And how does the pouring temp affect the candle? I'm using regular-mouth pint Ball jars, 780 Premier wicks (even though the Premier chart recommends something smaller), heating to 180 then adding 10% FO. Yes, I went to 10% because the last batch at 7.7% still didn't have the throw I wanted. I do wait the two weeks before testing. GoldieMN
  2. Do you prefer 415, 444, or 464? Have you ever added Crisco to any of these? Any and all opinions are greatly appreciated as I am a newbie. Thanks.
  3. How long should I allow 4627 and 4630 (separately) to cure for before I light them? What are the optimal temps to add fragrance and pour that you have found? What little tips/tricks do you have for working with these? Do any of you only use one of these waxes for container candles and love it? Also, I am thinking of mixing one of these with 464 to make a parasoy blend. What one would you recommend I do this with? I'm thinking of 70% paraffin and 30% 464 to start. Also, based on the paraffin that you recommend for the mix, what would the temps be to add fragrance, to pour, and the cure time for the blend? I love the way that 464 looks and burns, however, I am not getting a good hot throw. I have read that it can be a variety of variables, but I would like to add a paraffin to see if this improves it. I have 8 oz tins, with a 3" diameter, and I have htp, zinc, and eco wicks that I can use. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and give me your advice. I have already spent more money on this new hobby than I should have!
  4. Hi guys! Just wanted to share that I am filling orders today but also testing a new FO called Autumn Pear from LOnestar. Using 464 with a 10oz apothecary jar and two CD-6 wicks and no color. I'll let you know how that CT and HT do. I'll try to take some pics to post too. Have a great day!
