cybersix Posted December 22, 2005 Share Posted December 22, 2005 Hi all, yesterday I decided to buy a Yankee Candle pillar. I was curious about these candles, so I bought one. Scented Sage and Citrus.Very good scent, good cold throw, so at home I lit it immediately.UHMMMMMM hot throw not so strong as I was expecting, but I think maybe I had candle nose..Then I start to read this board in search of something about Yankee.. Extruded candles??? But I thought I saw frost and other tipical rustic things!!! But I can see a line going top to bottom.. ok, they make extruded candles, they have to produce a lot of candles, it can't be done by hand..I go back to my burning pillar.. wick's not centered!!! The melt pool is not centered!! :tiptoe: going back reading this board.Going back to my pillar. Air bubbles in the melting pool!! A lot of holes, while wax is burning air pops up from holes. So why do I have to tap and tap tap and tap my molds to avoid air bubbles???After 3 burning hours I estingushed the flame and went to bed.This morning I found mottling in the melt pool.Well, I'm almost sure I can make a better pillar, the worst thing of all is that I paid for it 14,90 euros (currently $ 17,60).Note to self: make your own candles Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
