Hi Guys

I would like your help here. I am going to try to put a soy data base together. If any of you are willing? This is information I would like to collect first. Even if someone has given the same answer for the same kind of wax please answer with your information also. I want as many opinions as possible.

Type of Soy or Soy Blend you use?

Additives if any?

Preferred dyes?

Preferred wick (Not sizes)?

Pouring temp you recommend?

What you do to prevent frosting?

What you do to prevent rough tops?

Do you do anything to prevent wet spots?

I want to put something together in the Tips and FAQ Database and Archive everyone that helps will have their names listed at the bottom of the data base. Credit will be give where credit is due.

Do you do anything to prevent wet spots? Throw all glass containers in the dishwasher or handwash with Dawn. Within 48 hours before pouring, they must be squeaky clean. This will give you virtually no wet spots. Do not pour into cold jars in a cold room. Keep the room as warm as possible and allow your jars to come to the same temp before pouring.

Thank you to all those that have added here. I am going to slowly work through the waxes about 5 a week. This data base is going to take time so bare with me.

If you don't feel comfortable about post the information publicly you can PM me.
