Trappeur Posted February 1, 2019 Share Posted February 1, 2019 I made my first tart melts in the metal scalloped molds this evening. I found I had 5 small and 5 large scalloped tin molds. I was thinking that my packaging would be in the 16oz and 8oz tins with a great looking label on the tin lid. How made ( I followed Flamings directions) Metal tart scalloped molds. The large mold holds 2 1/2 ounces The small molds holds 1 ounce 4625 Wax (I made a 1/2 pound wax) (I also added 4 large tablespoons of 464 to this) Christmas Hearth by CS Melted to 200 Poured 175 (I saved extra wax for a thin repour as Flaming said this would be needed but after they hardened they had no dips in the center at all and they came out just beautiful. The tops are grainy like a rustic look...but I love. (is 4625 this easy to work with or die i just get lucky in pouring??? Now the trick is how to get these out of the molds? Put in freezer and then push down so it comes out of mold? ?? Questions???: I can fit 2 tarts in either the 16oz or 8oz round tins and was thinking of putting a little doo dad embed on top. I figured out costs completely made and ready to go. Large 16oz - 4.04 to make (this seems rather high ) To wholesale the large maybe I should charge 6.00 as the same amount of work goes into this as the small?? I need to re add the prices again on this large tin. Small 8oz - 1.63 to make To wholesale at 4.00 is much better and I think they could get 8.00 retail Do you think my pricing structure of the wholesale prices sound good?
