Hope someone can offer some advise on this problem. It appears after my candles cool and have set the candle is not sticking to the sides of the jars, what could be causing this. I warm the jars prior to setting my wicks but the problem is still occuring, please help
I expect the wax is contracting on cooling?
I wonder if you cooled the wax some before pouring into jars?
---just a thought.
When I made candles I used the cardboard milk cartons as a mould,
and they would peel off from the candles.
One that I remember doing was to place a wick down the center of the 2 liter milk carton.
Then pack crushed ice or ice cubes into the carton around the wick.
Then pour melted wax over the ice. Let it set over night and then peel the carton off.
It gave interesting almost translucent candles.
the owner of papascandleshop.com here - are you using soy wax if so try your G444 also let your wax cool down to around 105 degrees stir a couple of times then pour into your jars that are at room temp.
