  • Problems making a chocolate scented soy container candle. Help please???

    Hi all, I have been asked to make some Soy CB135 chocolate coloured and scented glass container candles. I have had no luck yet in my trials. The scent is lovely, but the colour is mottling and looks awful. I used wax chips to colour but I'm not sure if it's the scent or the colour which is causing the problems. I have only got a little bit of my samples left so any advice would be really helpful. I tried inpex colour and can't remember the scent now but they were from 4candles so the quality isn't in question. I tried different temps but this didn't make a difference.

    If anyone has any advice on this I would be really grateful.

    Many thanks

    Hi Dabhand,
    This is right up my street! I love making chocolate candles. I use dark chocolate dye disc from www.candlemakers.co.uk. It's brilliant and you don't get the white frosting and mottling. Currently I use a 440g jar and melt 300g ecosoy Xcel wax with 2g dye and 15mil chocolate fudge fragrance (from www.4candles.co.uk) . When it's set I melt uncoloured eco wax and then scent it and whip it for the topping.
