Hi everyone! I am about to experiment with Parasoy 6006 and 8oz. (3" diameter) metal tins. I plan on using an 8-10% FO load. Would love to hear what has worked for you in terms of wicks? Not sure if I should use one large wick or 2 small ones. Any experience you are willing to share would be greatly appreciated! :)
Hello all!! Newbie here who came across this forum doing research. I recently decided to pick up a new hobby of candle making . I ordered a sample kit just to be sure if it’s what I want to do and to get familiar with the wax. I am about to order more wax and wicks, I will be using 8oz tins. I think I want to use ECO wicks, and wanted to know what size I should get. Acroding to Candle Science I should use ECO 10. From doing research on here I should test up a size and down a size of the recommended size. I also know that the FO also plays a part as well. I guess my question is are ECO wicks good for tins? If so what sizes normally works the best. Thanks in advance
Hello Everyone, I recently started making candles as a hobby, and I made some for my church, as a result, a few people have asked me to make a candle from them pushing me out of my hobby comfort zone. Currently, I am using 464 wax, and eco wicks (which I am going to try another wick), and 6oz mason jars. I saw some cute metal tins on sale at TJ Max and decided to give them a try. Friday I made some vanilla scented 4oz candles in tins. My question is, what's the preferred container for candles glass jars or tins. Also, I live in New Orleans and have not found a local glass jar distributor, I have noticed the shipping on them to be expensive. Does anyone have container supplier recommendations? Thanks in advance for helping a newbie out.
I am trying to find local suppliers that I can support. I am will to travel in order to sample fragrance oils. Hope to hear from y'all.
