co causing sink holes and cracks?

Recommended Posts

To be sure, pour a few candles without it.

I don't use 464, I use C3. I have found that CO does contribute to the wax's tendency to crack (the dreaded circular C3 crack). I don't use CO in my formula; however, the sinkholes are generally a function of the top cooling too rapidly. Try evening out the temperature of cooling by making sure there is circulation all around the candle and that the tops are protected from cooling more rapidly than the rest of the candle. Temperatures that vary in our pouring area produce changes in the appearance of soy candles. HTH
