Moulds For Making KeraSoy Pillar Wax Blend Candles
Moulds should be clean and free of contaminants. They should be at least at room temperature, although pre-heating to approx. 45 – 50°C can be beneficial. Clamshell Containers are ideal also for making wax melts.
Dyes For KeraSoy Pillar Wax Blend
Most dyes work with KeraSoy Pillar wax, powder, liquid, chips, blocks, etc. When using powder dyes, heat the wax to approx. 75°C, add the dye and mix until dissolved. Powder dyes may also be dissolved in fragrance and then added to the melted wax, be sure that the dye has dissolved completely before adding. When using powder dyes dissolved in fragrance, liquid dyes, or colour blocks heat the wax to 70°C. If you wish to make your candle darker or “richer”, add a little black dye to the colour you are using.
Adding Fragrance To KeraSoy Pillar Wax Blend
KeraSoy Pillar has been designed for fragrance at levels between 5 – 10%. Fragrance which is specifically developed for use with natural waxes is highly recommended. Burn pool size and depth greatly affect fragrance throw so correct wicking is paramount. Some fragrances may react poorly with the wax causing bleeding, objectionable surface finishes or poor flame quality. This has been found to be exaggerated when using fragrances specifically designed for use in Paraffin wax candles. Take a look at our fragrance range, we do 10 fragrances for £20, so a great offer not to be missed!
Wicking KeraSoy Pillar Wax Blend
Kerasoy Pillar Wax Blend tend to require larger wick sizes than traditional paraffin waxes. Fragrance, colour and candle configuration have a great impact on the best wick choice. Too large of a wick may cause sooting, accelerated burn times and guttering (wax leaking through the side of the candle). Too small a wick will cause tunneling and produce a smaller flame. Keep wicks trimmed to ¼ inch. If you experience poor flame quality or stability, try a different type of wick. Test burning should be done after the candle has had a chance to sit for 48 hours after pouring.
Melting KeraSoy Pillar Wax Blend
Temporary high temperatures (up to 90°C) have no adverse effect as long as the wax is cooled back down quickly. Higher temperatures may cause the wax to discolour. Allow the wax to cool to your desired pour temperature, add the fragrance and mix well. Be sure to stir/mix the wax while melting. Avoid using Pillars containing copper and zinc as this may accelerate discolouration. Stainless Steel is the material of choice although mild steel is acceptable. When pouring into clamshells or wax melt moulds the same applies, do not pour if wax is too hot. Our Digital temperature probes are a great way to test the temperature of the wax.
Pouring KeraSoy Pillar Blend Wax
Pour temperatures may vary according to mould type & size, fragrance & dye used and the effects the candle maker wishes to achieve. Greater release from the moulds may be achieved by pouring at temperature of around 55 – 65°C, although this will be dependent upon the size and shape of the candle being produced. Fragrance should be added and mixed immediately prior to pouring where practical. If you experience difficulties with your pour temperature, try a lower or higher temperature in increments of 5 – 10°C. Consider pouring into pre heated moulds for enhanced release properties. KeraSoy Pillar Wax Blend is formulated to require only a single pour, however for some large Pillars; a top-up is required to achieve the best candle surface. A small amount of wax at a slightly warmer temperature than the candle was poured at can be used to top-up the candle before the candle is fully cool (pouring the top-up once the candle is completely cool may result in a reduction of adhesion to the Pillar).
Cool undisturbed candles at room temperature (about 25°C). Candles should be allowed to sit undisturbed for 48 hours before test burning. Test burn the candle for burn pool diameter and “mushrooming” after it has cooled for 48 hours. Mushrooming is when carbon and/or other substances build up on the end of the wick interfering with combustion. Mushrooming can cause sooting and poor odours. Try different wicks until you have your desired burn pool diameter and a good clean flame.
