Question:

Unfortunately most of my first batch of eight candles have sink holes near the wick.  Could you suggest what I have done wrong so I can avoid this next time.  Also can I just melt some more wax and top up the candles that have a hole?

Answer:

You can certainly add extra wax to these. However it is best to avoid this for a better look.

Pour temperature 75˚C for GW464 Soy Wax (with Container Maker 40ml per kg) and for the other soy wax pour at 70˚C. This means there is less contraction as it cools.

We have a video that will take you through the whole process.
