the optimal blend of additives already in the wax. You may want to however add
UV Color Stabilizer to prevent fading and chemical color change.
Instructions for use:
Heat wax to 190°-200°. Once
wax reaches desired temp, add your dye, blend well then add fragrance and again
blend well. This wax should be poured between 185°-195° into heated molds to minimize
skip lines. It is advisable to poke relief holes around the wick of the candle
once the wax has become solid but is still pliable.
After the first pour has
cooled some, reheat your reserved wax from your first pour and refill the void
(sink hole) in the candle until you reach the level of the first pour. You will
want your second pour to be 10° hotter than your first pour to minimize lines
from the second pour. Repeat the re-pour process as necessary. To make a rustic
finished candle, do not heat the molds and pour the wax at 165°.

*We can only offer recommendations as to what wax will perhaps
work best for you but we cannot guarantee any certain wax to work best in any application
because of the many variables involved. The only way to determine the
appropriate wax selection is by experimentation. Test burning will be necessary
to determine the best wax for your candles!
