Layered Mango Pillar.......


Wick'n'Wax

hi nat

i'm using block dyes, either from hobbycraft or sensoryperfection.

plain paraffin, not actually got any additives yet, got some vybar on order, and will pick up some stearin..

Shouldn't be any dye left in the pot, I always reheat and wipeout when I've finished.

One thing I have noticed, my layers seemed to big big sweeping lines, whereas the others I've seen are perfectly straight (although at an angle) more like zig zags.

I need to figure out what to perch the mould on really should I try again.

I think once you use some additive you will be happier. Plain wax makes a candle but not necessarily a great one. I like stearic for rustic and mottles and vybar 103 if I am going for a smooth creamy look. You look like you got a lot of air bubbles going on and maybe poured to hot.....too fast? They sell additives for a reason (smile).....Donita Louise

Get a shallow box and fill it with dry beans - this is an excellent way to tilt your molds.
