Curing candles with no lids??

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

Just out of curiosity, how do you cure your candles with no lids? I've always just assumed lids were needed for curing (don't ask me why, I don't know :D ). Anywho...I made a candle yesterday that has no lid. I stuck some Press and Seal (you know, sorta like a waxy Saran Wrap) over the top. What do you guys do?? Just wondering :)

Boy, I feel silly! I try to make sure I have lids on my jars and containers but when there arent any, I just cure them as they are, NEVER occured to me to turn the darn things upside down! Duh!! Thanks for that little SMART tip!!

God Bless,

I think a layer of FO just migrates and sits on the surface over time. Thats why I think when people pick up candles in the store and take the lid off the FO hits them and they THINK it'll throw really well when burned - but one doesn't equal the other. Just my theory anyway.
