V-1 Soy questions


Recommended Posts

Anybody have any experience with Astorlite V-1 soy votive wax? I bought 10 pounds to experiment with, since my wax supplier swore by it. I'm swearing AT it. I've tried pouring it at 150, with no color or scent, 130, and 120. It cracked every time. My supplier said 5% stearic would stop that. It still cracks every time. And I don't mean little cracks. When I pull the candle from the mold, sometimes they fall apart then, when I try to remove the wicking pin, they pull apart. I've tried remelting them & they still crack, even when the molds are warmed.

I also got cracks with tealights.

Any ideas?
