DaisyFairy Posted December 24, 2005 Share Posted December 24, 2005 this is the right board for this question.. if not, my appologies.I have robnat 1230 palm wax from taylored. it has a crystal like finish.I have made some 3" pillars out of it and I notice it has very little shrinkage. I poke the releif holes just like normal.. I calculated the wax needed for the mold just like normal. I came out with the same amount as the calculator on the handy calculator page. When I make the candles 3" x 3" pillars I end up with 5 ounces of extra wax. I poke the relief holes more than once.. usually 3 times during the cooling process..but there is no cavity at the end of the cooling process.. only the holes I poked and a very small shrinkage lip at the top... so I wind up with all this extra wax. So I was worried I did something wrong... and there may be hollow spots.. I have burned one more than half-way down and still burning...so far so good... no disappearing melt pool.. good throw good burn.. so I am at a lossI will keep testing .. but, I was just wondering.. if anyone else noticed a difference in the wax amount used... maybe it just shrinks less and takes less wax than regular pillar wax. any help would be appreciated GREATLY! lol.Daisy Fairy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
