Hardening up Container Wax for Tarts?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello all :)

I've got a ton of container wax I need to use up. I'd love to use it for tarts. Any suggestions on how I can harden it up a bit (it's J223). I had some leftover this afternoon from pouring candles and poured it into a silicone heart mold..it popped right out, but it's super soft and I'm betting it will be impossible to get out of the warmer! Any thoughts? :D Thanks!

I was experimenting with this recently. I tried beeswax and I had to add a lot without noticing too much difference. Now I add about 3% stearic acid and it works really well. I use J50 wax. Adding the stearic has not diminished the scent throw either. It still isn't hard enough to use in clamshells, but it works great for tarts.

LOL :) I am totally mathematically challenged, LOL. I think I'll just have to play around and see what I can do :) I haven't even ventured into pillars. I've done a few containers, but I'm so in love with tarts! I just figured since I already have container wax, why not try tarts with them....made one in a silicone mold and it popped out beautifully...but man it was a greasy mess!
