aviator girl Posted March 10, 2010 Report Share Posted March 10, 2010 A couple more qustions regarding 6006. For those that use this do you always get nice creamy smooth tops or do you get crackling or uneven color discoloration on top?I have used this for quite some time and it seems like I always have had nice tops just had to fight the sink hole issue occasionally.Lately I seem to be having problems with this. It seems like my tops don't look nice and smooth anymore. I can't figure out if something is going on with this case of wax or if the colder weather is causing problems for me. They aren't really "cracking" but they do have color variations that makes it not look nice and pretty and creamy. I even have been covering with a box. I pour around 170-180 so I don't think I am pouring at the wrong temp.Just for the heck of it I pulled out some onld Taylored replacement 30/70 wax I had. (70% paraffin/20% soy and 10% petro) They compare this to the 6006 but I can tell it's sligthly different. These candles look beautiful. Nice and creamy, beautiful coloring and no sink holes.Even made me think about switching to it. However I am test burning two candles exactly the same except for one has the Taylored wax and one has 6006. While the Taylored one is performing well enough I think the 6006 is giving off a slightly better HT. The 6006 is burning faster though and reached full melt pool faster.So I think if I can ever get my wicking figured out so that I am satisfied with it I'll try the 85% 6006 and 15% ezsoy tip and see how that works out.If anyone has any experience or suggestions with the top appearance thought I would appreciate it. I am not even getting much in the way of wet spots. Just this crazy top situation. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
