Cracks, what to do?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I have been getting cracks on the top of my candles as they begin to dry, what is causing this? And what can be done to stop it. If you make relief holes, do you poke them where the crack is? And then fill them with hotter wax? Is this correct? I am using J-50 wax in baby food jars, 6oz. ANd my wick is cd-6 corless wick. Please help! Thanks, Dee

Based on stinger butt's experience I assume small containers cool off too fast for this wax. Try pouring the wax on the hot side and use a slow cooling technique. If you have a styrofoam box or cooler to put them into that would be ideal.

For future reference please let us know if that fixes it.
