Use bigger molds.

Sorry, had to go there. You can try putting them in the fridge for a few minutes. Most of the time, they'll kind of come out of the mold when they get ready, though.

Oddly it sometimes helps to blow into the wick hole. Feels kind of silly when you do it, but it can help, at times.

That's if you use wick pins, lol. I have a vision of someone trying to blow into the wick hole with the wick in the candle:D . But of it works, it works. He's correct, usually they come out when they are ready so you may have to let them sit longer. Putting them in the fridge can work at times.

Yes, they are scented. I left them overnight to. I have only made 2 out of this wax. I will post some when I know more about what I am doing! I use wick pins to.
If you're making mottled candles it's not unusual for them to stick. The mottling prevents them from shrinking. If they don't cooperate after cooling for a good long time, put them in the fridge for a while as Dustpuuppy suggested and warm the mold in your hands for a bit, then try again.

OK lets get this straight I need to rub my mold between my hands to warm it up then make sure I try blowing my candle threw the wick hole.

All this should make my wicks stiff too. :tiptoe:
