smellylittlemonkeys Posted June 22, 2008 Report Share Posted June 22, 2008 So I poured two candles today and was hoping to see some pretty tops when I opened the oven, WRONG!!They look awful. The tops are all a tad mushy and frosted and down the sides. I had high hopes for these as I used 1/2 tablespoon pp of coconut oil as well as 1 tablespoon pp of USA for the first time.I am using C3 Nature Wax, used FO Sweet Pea from LS and FO Apple & Clover from JBN w/ liquid dye from LS. Jars were washed and dried and warmed in oven. After poured they were cooled in the warm oven. I am not sure why they came out like that. I thought the coconut and USA were suppose to help with tops and frosting. I had already melted my wax and then it had hardened again, I re-melted it again and then added the USA as I did not have it before when I first melted the wax. I don't think this caused any problems though because I did not use all of the wax and once it went back solid in the presto it was nice and smooth and firm, unlike what my candles turned out to be.I am attaching a link to pictues of what my results. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated!http://s219.photobucket.com/albums/cc198/ambernricketts1980/candle/?albumview=grid Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
