Candle looks like cauliflower

I have always been using these soy wax from the same company. Both the soft wax and pillar wax are behaving weird. It turns out like cauliflower. I have tried several times but I have been getting the same result. Does anyone know what the issue is? IMG_20220901_151159.thumb.jpg.dca813f1d3f6da49c4885ea3e5728e3e.jpg

Lots of unstable stearic and other fatty acids in that. Happened to me with a test batch of non crystallizing palm wax.  Was ok as a low % in blends, or in very small candles that cooled rapidly.  Any sort of slow cooling did exactly that. 
 

you could try pouring cooler, risking the detail on your intricate mold.  I personally think that is either the wrong wax sent to you, or just one of those batches that slipped through at the wrong end of the quality spectrum.

Hey thank you so much for the reply. Yeah I think it's the wax problem itself as well. I have tried in so many ways but ended up with the same result. I contacted the seller and will be getting a refund for it.

It might be a good wax for making whipped cream for dessert candles.  😊

Hahaha yeah, unfortunately I don't need it for that purpose.

Sorry you’re going through all that. It’s not common for wax retailers to realize wax problems and refund. I hope you’re able to find your right wax and get on with it.
