Air pockets/GB 464


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what there heat/pour temps are 464?

New at candle making and getting very discouraged!!

1lb of GB 464

Heated to 175-added color

removed from heat

added 1 oz of Sweet Pea FO at 170

stirred and poured 1 at 170 and 1 at 150

Using 12 oz jars with Eco wicks 10

Pre heated jars and also covered with box so it wouldn't cool to fast

Both had air pockets but the 150 had less.

Hope I gave all the info needed. still new at all of this

We heat to 185 (recommended by manufacturer), add FO, we don't use dyes, stir the oil for 2 minutes, let set until temp reaches 150-155 and then pour. We also preheat our jars. We used to pour at lower temps but had problems with pockets. Some FO still have pockets at the 150-155 but most of them do good at that.

Hope this helps...
