That's definitely one to search for on here, lot of info.

Briefly, anywhere from 1-30%. 1tbs pp is roughly 1.6% but depends on the physical form of the stearic. Lowers melt point, increases hardness and opacity.

I sometimes use 2% in mottled pillars or 10% in tapers. Really touchy on the wicking especially at low %. 2 to 3 is one wick size diff for me.

I guess I mostly use it for the look, as at 2% it doesn't harden my wax enough or really increase FO holding. A bit of each maybe... more makes the wax too opaque for my taste for pillars, tho I'm OK with that for tapers.
