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 repour process as necessary.
