I made a testing template you can use

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I've been researching, pouring and testing candles like a crazy person in order to make my product the highest quality I can, but also make it as safe as possible (ain't nobody trying to get sued, amirite). In my research I've found plenty of resources, some more helpful than others, however I wasn't able to find a testing template that worked super great for me, so I made my own and wanted to share it in case anybody needs it/wants to use it.

If you have any suggestions of what I might have missed or what else I could add, let me know.

That is a great template. Is it possible to make this on 1 page instead of 2 halves?

It‘s actually 2 full A4 pages, I made it this way so it can be printed double sided. The second page is really just for continuing to document burn cycles (you can add the numbers of the burn cycle and/or just print the second page if you need even more burn cycles)

Hope that made sense 🙈

you can also just use the first page if you‘d like

Great job! The only thing I didn't see was room temperature. For the most part we wick for an average room temp, but if your room is  warmer, or colder it will effect your test results.

Wow this is great! One question: what is Rauchbildung?

Thanks

Oh no, I didn‘t notice I missed that. It means ‚smoking‘ basically, and ‚Brenndauer‘ is burn time. Must’ve overread when I translated it because I use mine in German. Damn it, I‘ll fix it, let me know if you need an update. Sorry

It's no biggie, I'll just write in the translations.

Temperature and humidity. My new shop I've been in the past 2 years I've had to add a dehumidifier for the summer months.
