  1. I am making clamshells and I get a great throw with the tea light type of wax melter but no throw whatsoever in the electric warmers. The only way I get a throw with the electric is to use a higher wattage bulb but I read that can create a fire hazard. Any advice? I am using NG pillar bliss wax (what they recommend for wax melts) I have tried using multiple cubes in the electric warmer as well and nothing past a slight throw when I am standing in front of it but the tea light warmer fills the entire house.
  2. Hi all, I'm new to making wax melts and have even sold a few -yay me 😀. I've used both 464 and 494 and so far haven't seen much of a difference. The 464 is easier to work with and sets up nicer and after trying a blind scent test, I'm not sure if I can tell a difference in the hot or cold throw. Do any of you have any opinions? I use about 1 oz per pound of FO and have gotten good reviews from customers on the melts I made with 464. Thanks! Karen
  3. I have just started making candles this year and was very frustrated so I put that aside to make tarts, thinking they would be easier. However, I am not getting a good scent throw. I use Ecosoya PB Pillar Soy Wax. I used .25 oz scent to 4 oz wax. I added the dye and scent at about 180-185 degrees. Can anyone give me any suggestions on making these scents stronger? I've been using Nature's Garden scents such as "Twilight in the Woods," "Bedtime Bath," "Rosemary Mint." and "Spring Rain."
  4. Over the last few months I have been blending my own waxes looking for a nice paraffin and soy blend for wax melts. I've tried several combinations of 6006 and 4625, 4794 and 6006, and even these straight. I've tried adjusting the FO amounts, pouring at different temps, and adding vybar. I did notice vybar makes wax more opaque, which I like. but my throw on all these combos are ho-hum, even after a long cure. What are some good waxes to try that met the following requirements? Parraffin and soy blend, no frosting on the soy. Has an opaque creamy appearance and texture. Has ridiculo
  5. Hi I wanted some reviews on getting clamshells. I have mostly got them from COOP in the past. I'm looking at getting them from either Impact, Panic, eclamshell- I know the min is high but that's okay. Also I may end up ordering from Lonestar or Candle Science too. Should i stay away from any of these places because they are know to have a plastic smell? I've read alot of reviews and there's alot of different opinions. Thanks for any help!
