FO rule of thumb


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi, when you're trying out a new FO is there a general rule of thumb regarding the percentage of FO to wax. I know that the percentage can vary considerably depending on type of wax, additives, etc, etc, etc, but wondered at what level you start testing? TIA

Forgot to add that I make pillars (if that makes any difference).

With pillars I start with the max the wax will hold unless it's a FO that has been reviewed to be real strong, then I cut down. Usually 3/4 to 1oz. pp. HTH

Mary is totally right, depends upon your wax and the FO. I use 1 oz pp (or less) if it's very strong 1.25 otherwise.

I always start at 6%. Like others have said if it needs more than that I will not add it to my line. This will give me a good idea if I will stick with 6% or start deducting. There are some fo companies that recommend (and I follow) using only 3%.

HTH,
