Rustic Problems. Help!


Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

I can never seem to get a rustic to come out properly.

I'm using 1343A wax, adding 1/2 teaspoon vybar 103, 3 Tablespoons Stearic and .75oz. of FO per pound of wax (also a touch of UV and couple drop of liquid color). I'm in a 67 degree room so the aluminum mold is fairly cool to the touch and I pour at 145 degrees. I pour the first few ounces and splash it around, wait a several moments and then quickly fill the mold the rest of the way.

When I remove the candle from the mold, it's only rustic on the top inch or so, then the rest of the candle is smooth and solid.

The closest I've ever come to making a fully rustic candle is if I freeze the mold first, but then they come out more frosted than rustic.

What am I doing wrong? :confused:

TIA, :)
