my candle test

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to share my candles. i am new and have been testing to see what wax i like with lots of tips from reading here. i hope these pics work. the candles are a blend of 85% 6006, 15% ecosoya excel, 1 tsp coconut oil, 7% FO, and 1 dye chip per pound. i melted to 190, added dye and fo, stirred well, poured at 180 into room temp jars, and cooled on a rack. so far they look perfect and are burning well. this is after two hours of burn time on the first burn. what do you guys think?

What type and size of wick did you use? I see the status jars (my favorite) and the apothecary (they look like 16oz. apothecaries), but what type of container is the one in the last picture?

Keep us updated, please! :smiley2:

sorry... i was so focused on getting the pics to post i forgot some info. i have two 8oz apothecary jars with a 4 in diameter scented pumpkin crunch cake by nature's garden. they are in the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th pics. in picture two the jar on the left has a lx 26 and the jar on the right a lx 24. the other jars are 8oz status jars with about a 3 in diameter scented buttered run from nature's garden. they are in the 1st, 4th, and 5th picture. in picture one the jar on the left has a cd16 and the jar on the right has a lx21.

picture 5 is just all of the jars i just described together in one shot.

thanks debbie. so far i have done three 4 hour burns. the scent is good but none of them have reached a full melt pool yet. each burn has gone out closer to the edge. it also keeps its nice creamy smooth top when it rehardens so i like that too. i will keep going though. i may make another tester in each jar with one wick bigger for both.
