ok, i think i've tried everything that has been mentioned to me or posted here on the boards. i'm trying to eliminate bubbles...raw wick, heating the scenery before the pour, priming the wick, heating the gel (adding the fo), cooling the gel then re-heating it again. is it my high expectations or is it next to impossible to eliminate those nasty little bubbles?:( just about ready to hit myself with the stupid stick.

Hi! I use my thermometer to pour my gel onto into the container so it is running down the thermometer. Does that make sense?? In other words I'm not pouring directly into the container, I put the thermometer in the container then let the gel run down it. This seems to help cut down on bubbles & then I put them in a sunny(when we have sun!) window & that gets rid of them more. HTH Cathy

i have found that when i am doing a scene candle and do not want bubbles, i have to pour hot, in thin layers. i pour a layer, put it in a warm oven, turn off oven and let candle cool down. when i take it out of the oven, if there are bubbles on surface, i zap it with the heat gun. i repeat this until the candle is finished. it takes time, but it works for me. you can see my scene candles at
