    I think this us the best candle making video!! They are absolutely beautiful!!  What label making program do you use? Thank for sharing!!

  • Amelia Causer says:

    Loving this demo video!! Do you happen to have one which shows the wooden wicks burning? I’m starting a small business making my own soy wax candles, and would also love any advice you may be able to give on getting your product stocked in shops or out into the market? I could make them all day, but finding a market for them is the tricky part!!

    Many thanks. :)

    Where do you get your cedar sticks?

  • lisa knight says:

    Do you use the inkjet printer for your labels??

  • lisa knight says:

    I purchase mine online from candle Science and from Natures Garden candle supply. They have about the lowest prices you will find. Shipping is what is so high.

  • lisa knight says:

    I’m not the owner of this video, but your fragrance has a flashpoint of about 125 degrees. You want your fragrance to go in after it cools down to that temp.

  • Shell D says:

    Your labels are beautiful! Labels are by biggest challenge & there’s not a lot of information out there to help…
    Everything looks great :)

    Hi Tracy, sorry I missed all your messages, It is very rare that I come back to a video to read old comments, but I dont know if you know, but I am in england UK and you’ll pay double for your supplies here, I dont know who the suppliers are in the US, but a company called SKS spring to mind, i think they do candle jars. hope that helps. xx

  • candlegirl1973 says:

    I wondered why my candles dipped in like that. Thanks for the idea on how to fix it. My husbands industrial heat gun is now going to be in my craft room. Lol

  • Ravyn Blood says:

    Ive never even heard of wood wicks?!? I have to try. Does it burn differently other than not having smoke? Thanks.

  • Christine ONeal says:

    I’ve found that Ebay seems to have reasonable prices on wood wicks. Wood wick candles are quite expensive….about $23 USD.

  • Christine ONeal says:

    Where do you buy most/all of your supplies?

  • NYtalk60 says:

    Correction, it’s 9 or 12 per sheet.

  • NYtalk60 says:

    I use Avery round labels here in the U.S. for my body products. I design my own and the’yre on a sheet which makes it easy for it to come off. It has a gloss finish. They come in two different sizes and come 10 and 12 on a sheet depending on size. Don’t know if you have them there. However, I’m sure you can find a lable company there that will have the same.

  • mrscrafty100 says:

    Hi there, I would pour that wax at about 100 degrees, also, make sure your jars are warm, either hit them with a blow dryer or heat gun right before you pour, or stick the jars in a warm oven just enough to get warm. I hope this helps

  • Rhonda Maner says:

    You are truly my favorite candle maker but I need help…I’m using 464 soy and no matter what temp I pour, I get wet spots. I also heat my jars. They say for 464 to pour at 130 degrees. I’ve tried that as well as slushy and cooler like you do but still get lots of wet spots..I’m using mason jars. Can you advise me?? Thanks and I hope you keep doing candle videos.

  • Ravyn Blood says:

    kababs! lol

  • mrscrafty100 says:

    Hi…No, it is not necesary to do with parrafin

  • solecitobonito1977 says:

    hi would you neeed to do the blow dryer with the paraffin candles to?

  • mrscrafty100 says:

    Hi there, feel free to send me a message on my youtube channel and i will be more than happy to try and help! =)

  • mrscrafty100 says:

    Hi, I get them all over, natures garden, peak candles, candlewic

  • mrscrafty100 says:

    Hi..its a commercial melter. I bought it many years ago. I dont think a coffee one would work, you can always use the double boiler method to melt your wax.

  • jaebebe22 says:

    Awesome vid! Where do you get your scents?

  • Miguel Hernandez says:

    Hey how are u…! I hope u doing good!!! I will like to ask u a few questions about ur candles can u please email @ dangellgbe@gmail.com thanks ! :)

  • mrscrafty100 says:

    Because they are soy, the longer you let them cure the better scent throw they will have, you can burn them te next day, but you wont get a strong scent throw, its alwats best to let soy wax cure for at least a week. =)

  • Wearmeoutaccessories says:

    Why do you have to wait a week or two? What if I only wait 24hrs?

  • Bertha Smith says:

    I didn’t know that thank you for that useful information …

  • mrscrafty100 says:

    Hi…I heat them because it helps the soy wax adhere better to the jar and so it helps reduce wet spots and frost. =)

  • Bertha Smith says:

    why do you heat the jars before you put the wax in?

  • HeatherMF21 says:

    Totally agreed :) I’m in the kitchen making Caramel apple and I was wondering how long the slushy effect takes to show and is there a specific temperature?

  • mrscrafty100 says:

    Awesome!! =D I love Fall scents too.. they make me feel cozy! =)

  • HeatherMF21 says:

    Fantastic! thanks for the information :) My candles came out great… I can’t wait to light them up. I made Banana Caramel Cupcake and Candy Corn. I just LOVE the Fall scents!

  • mrscrafty100 says:

    Hi..thank YOU for watching! =) I put the lids on as soon as they are cool, have completely solidify and my wicks are trimmed, I then let them cure for at least a week before I test burn because I like to allow my soy to cure for at least that amount of time. Have fun candle making!! =D

  • HeatherMF21 says:

    I’m planning on making some candles today thanks to your video, great idea letting them cool and stirring them until they turn “slushy” like! :) But I do have a question. I’m going to use similar jars with lids, when do you put the lids on? During the cooling phase or when they are fully done and ready to give as gifts?
    Thanks girly! Keep up the great creative ideas :)

  • XoXoXKaRiNaXoXoX says:

    Thanks so much for your help. I will let you know how it turns out. I will try some out soon. Thanks again.

  • mrscrafty100 says:

    You can double wick, it will certainly make the wax hotter and might give you a better scent throw, just remember to test, you have to find the right wick for the jar, what I hate the most is the testing of the wicks in order to find the right size for the jar. Good luck hun, let me know hoe it turns out if you decided to double wick. =)

  • XoXoXKaRiNaXoXoX says:

    Cold throw is amazing, it’s the hot throw that is nonexistent. I’ve added the scent at 120 and 115 but they don’t work and pour at 100 or 105. I have yet to try the slushy stage. I also noticed you double wick…maybe i should try that too. For now, I’m using my wax as tarts. I’ve also read something about using a thicker wick….I’ll have to try that too.

  • mrscrafty100 says:

    The 464 and 444 are two of my favorite soy waxes, I’m surprised they are not giving you a good hot and cold scent throw. Are you adding the fragrance only when the temp goes down to about 120F and pouring when its around the slushy or apple sauce phase? I’m thinking maybe the scent is flashing off if your adding it while the wax is too hot. What Ratio of FO are you using?

  • XoXoXKaRiNaXoXoX says:

    I’ve used the soy125, GW464, 444, a blend of both paraffin and soy, and now tried the paraffin with a bit if vypar. I must admit that the paraffin has better scent throw. But i really do want to use soy. I tried pouring at low temp and adding scent at low temp, but that didn’t work either.
