Sarah S Posted February 13, 2019 Share Posted February 13, 2019 So I made my first pillar candle over the weekend, and I am now super excited about exploring this new territory. Actually, I poured two, but one was such a disaster, I'm not confident I'll be able to test it accurately. Anyway, I have a couple questions that went unanswered by the search function. I have spools of wicking that are unprimed. Should I be priming them? I didn't, is that going to mess up my burn? I got a bunch of mold plugs, and I jammed one all up in there, but I still had some leakage. For the disaster candle I used some Gorilla tape over the hole, and got a river pouring out of the bottom. And now my counter reeks of Nag Champa. 😕 I read in an older thread that @TallTayl reccomends high temp automotive tape, is that still a thing? Does the mold sealer some suppliers sell work? Should I be going for a combo? Thats all I've got for questions for now. I didn't get the Crystal pattern that I was hoping for, but I didn't warm my mold and my house was really cold, so I think it just cooled too fast. Here's a pic!
