joanncat18 Posted October 26, 2009 Report Share Posted October 26, 2009 Hi there, I know there are a lot of people who use the KY votive/tart wax. I also know that a lot of people mix soy with it. I want to hear from those of you who use straight KY votive/tart blend on how it performs. Does it ripple on top? A small dimple is ok with me but I have been using the IGI votive blend (4794), and it is rippling quite a bit I am using 6% FO right now). I like a smooth look. Also, does it come out of the tart bowl well? I have read that it throws well and that a lot of people like it. Just wondering if it would be worth a try. My IGI votive blend I have been playing with a mix of different precents. I made a batch of about 12% Acu Para 30 (container blend) and the rest the IGI votive blend. This got rid of the ripples and they looked nice, but even in the freezer wouldn't come of of the bowl too well. I finally did get it to come out if there was 2 tarts melted instead of just one. A higher volume of wax came out easier than the smaller volume in the bowl. Then I tried just 8% of the container wax and there was still a lot of rippling. So tonight I made a batch with 10% container and 90% IGI votive, this is cooling now. We will see. For tart making I would really like to avoid blending waxes.
