Working on a note taking sheet-feedback appreciated


 Share

Recommended Posts

I've just started making container candles and have really only poured a few times. I still testing jars and wax and wicks and I'm becoming inundated with paper!! I found a candle test sheet on the internet but the way it is set up is basically one sheet per candle. So, if I make up a 1 pound of batch of wax, and pour it into 4-6 different jars with different wicks then I have 4-6 pages of notes. It's a little cumbersome and time consuming and I find myself not filling it out completely.

So, I've come up with a new form that has the info on the batch at the top and then a place for notes and info on each different container/wick combo that I pour from that batch.

Am I missing anything? Anything you would change?

This is intended to be printed as a two sided sheet, so most batches would be one page. If needed additional copies of page two could be added.

Thanks!

I'm fairly new to candle making and I've only poured a few container candles myself. I'm always trying to come up with a more organized way of documenting my tests. I have to say that your note taking sheet is very organized and detailed, the only thing that I would add to it would be above your pour temp, list a spot for you to document your fo/dye temps. Great job! :thumbsup:

looks pretty good to me, If you don't mind I stole it, looks better than my excel sheet!

looks good to me too but I was thinking of setting up a excel spreadsheet with the info:laugh2: Maybe use the printed sheet for the testing phase and then enter the final info into excel for easy access later on.
