cybersix Posted July 16, 2008 Share Posted July 16, 2008 Hi all, back in these days to work with paraffin. My customer wants 15 smooth and plain pillars....Ok, I did the first 5 and poured at about 175F...I use paraffin and vybar.All the pillars had lots of pinholes, even if I tapped the molds for at least 5 minutes each. Then I had fingernailing. Not big white spots but small white bubbles on surface.I read something here, and it seems the problem is a bit out of control.Weather conditions could be affecting the problem? We have 78-80F and humidity is at 54%. I can't control the environment where I pour.But why is this happening? I have slabs of paraffin and they seem to have tiny bubbles inside, so I thought I could:cook the wax before adding additives;adding a bit more vybar.Any suggestions?I'm so depressed!!!!
