I don't like the color but I had to work with what they sent in my kit (pink and canary yellow....lol) They are scented Hot Apple Pie and I used EcoSoy Adv. CT is quite strong. Even though I can't stand the scent now, I can't wait to test them :yay: Criticism welcome :D Thanks for looking!

Thank you all for the compliments :D The color is more peachy in the picture than they are. They are more orange than peach, quite a bit brighter than they look on here....none the less, I still don't like the color...lol. I really enjoyed creating them though...it was fun, just have to keep my boys away from them. They got grubby little finger prints all over them before I took the pictures :) Other than the 'interesting' color ;) I think they turned out pretty good for a first attempt!

Ravens - I got the kit from Canwax, the instructions were not bad but I think had I not read so much on here before making them I probably would have had a million questions....they lacked detail and were fairly vague.

nmhoneybear - I liked the scent at first but after pouring them the scent nauseated me and gave me a terrible headache. I am hoping it was just that particular FO because I am not normally a scent sensitive person :( Now that a few days have passed I can tolerate the scent but I still don't like it...lol

Thanks all, for the compliments!

I've had the same issue with a few FO's. Now I just try to always make sure I have plenty of ventilation. Some fragrances are mild or average OOB, but then surprise you by being almost overwhelming in a pour pot.

I had a coffee fragrance like that. I ended up throwing it away after just a few votives.

Candleman: I gotta admit, I love that frost! The blue looks absolutely gorgeous for winter! Which wax are you using?

I am using the GB 464, I do like the look but not for everything... I have tried everything to prevent it. Best I have been able to do is heat the room to 85deg. and still get a little frost. I think I will try the ecosoy advance next. Thanks
