hi all, i'm new to candle making and have started using C3 wax. i'm having difficulties with the texture of my candles. i have been getting rough, uneven tops and cracking. i have tried almost every pouring temp between 120-165*F. i have also tried not adding fragrance oil to see if it was causing the texture but they came out the same. at this point, i have no idea what is causing the texture. i would love to achieve smooth tops with C3 as it is the only wax my local supplier carries. please let me know if you have any advice. also, has anyone been successful with HTP wicks and C3 wax? i am using 4oz and 8oz straight glass jars but all i get is tunneling. i also get poor glass adhesion even after pouring slowly. what could be the problem? i've read many success stories with C3 but so far it has been a complete nightmare :((((((
I have a really strange thing that's just started to happen with my 7oz candles. They look beautiful, but seem to have a developed gap inside (near the wick) that's causing them to self extinguish. I've been making candles for a couple of years and thought that I had everything down... Now I have all of these candles and have no idea which ones are fine and which ones might have a cavity... HELP!
Hi Everyone, New to candle making over the last 6 months and just getting the courage to start selling soon. I've been working with C3 for awhile now. The reason I use them is that I have a distributor that is close enough for me to go and pick it up instead of paying for shipping. I have a question for you that I hope you can answer... I am getting small bubbles forming after I have lit the candle. I am assuming this is a processing issue, but could be mistaken. I have attached a picture to show you what I mean. My parameters are rather simple: 6% FO C3 Wax No additives in this sample Container is 3.4" wide Process: Heat wax to 175F add FO at 150F Pour at 140F Thanks for your help in advance! Swix
Hi, all, I am new to C3 wax, so i am trying different pouring temp to achieve a smooth top without adding FO first. I tempered the wax, heated to 185F and stay for 5 mins, then removed from the heat and let them cool down for the whole night. The next day, I heated wax up to 185F again, and poured at 165F and 135F respectively, and cool down gradually in the preheated oven. But the tops of two candles turned out to be very similiar, both have shrink in the centre, and both have pattern just like turtle deck, no actual crack. Can anyone enlighten me what the reason might be to cause the shrink and such cracking like pattern. Thanks very much!
