Hello! I am currently using GW 444 Soy Wax and I am having a hard time with wick sizes. I use mason jars that are 8 oz The ball brand regular and wide mouth. So, the diameter is 2 inches and 2.5 inches. I was curious to what size you all use for your candles? Also, I typically use 1.5 to 2 oz of FO with no dye.
What happened here? I'm having continuing problems with 444 and 464 wax. The photos you see here were left to cool slowly overnight on their own. The ambient temperature when I left them for the night was 92F at 8:19 PM, and the humidity was 36% (low humidity for my area). I'm getting these results with this wax more often than not. The tops look dried out and have a rippled, cracked appearance. The tops appear similar to a severe case of chapped lips. I didn't pour too hot. Pouring was done SLOWLY at 135F or less. Wax: GW 444 Heated to 190+ and added dye, then stirred for a full two minutes. Added 12% fragrance at 185F, then stirred for a full two minutes. I let the wax stand until it cooled to 135F, and then I poured. If this is the way these two waxes are supposed to look, then I can live with it or is there something I'm missing here?
As though some of us are not confused enough, we are now to learn new item numbers for the Golden Wax series, i.e., GW415, GW444, GW464 ... and whatever else. I don't know all of the numbers, that's why I'm posting this. The new number for GW464 is now 5702-02. I thought it might be good to list these so people know what we're talking about when we start referring to these waxes with the new numbers. So, if you have the new numbers for the other AAK (formerly Golden Wax) waxes, can you please list them here?
