White Spots on my candle

Hi Everyone,

When I made some candles this past weekend, I noticed that the color of the candles are not even - there were some noticeable white spots. I was wondering if the reason for these white spots is because I used crayons instead of candle dye. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

The white spots could be frosting from uneven cooling or cooling to quickly. Make sure your containers are preheated (in oven set to 170 degrees) before pouring your wax into them. Try cooling your candles in a small room with a room heater or in a cooling oven.

I don't use any dye but I think I remember reading somewhere on here that using crayons to color your candles can actually clog the wick. Search crayons and read up on it.

Good luck!
