I so far in this candle making journey have been using the tins. I tried it mason jars last night and I checked on them this morning to find a small crack in one. It's just very small and didn't go all the way through the wall of the glass. I use 464 soy wax, I poured at about 135. Are there any tips to prevent this? In the picture below as you can tell it just looks like a deep scratch.
Howdy all~ I currently am using 16oz wide mouth mason jars for my candles. I am looking for the best place to get these wholesale ( I live in AZ) and am also looking for Black lids. Any suggestions. I have checked many sites but I am sure there are many I don't know about as I am just getting started. Thank you so much in advance for ideas.
Hi All- I am starting to make soy candles with essential oils to sell to help pay for IVF (to friends/family/craft fairs). This also give me a much hobby to funnel my energy into right now & help me focus on something other than doctors appointments! I have just started testing, and need some guidance. I have narrowed it down to working with C-3 or golden 464 wax and am wondering which you would suggest for someone in FL and a newbie. I would also like to use wooden wicks... for someone who isn't doing this as a full blown business, but definitely to make money, what tools are a must, what should I avoid, etc. I am thinking of using mason jars (a small & large size - does anyone have a size they would especially recommend? What wick size would you pair with that specific size? How much oil per jar?). I am in the process of getting an LLC and insurance as well. I know these are a lot of novice questions, but any advice would be welcome! I live in Clearwater, FL and there isn't much of a candle making community/store/or classes. Also, is there a brand of EO that I can buy in a large quantity? I have found in my test batch I am going through the standard jars I buy at whole foods very fast! Any tips, advice, love, encouragement (lol), would be welcome!
