  • Wax melts ~ is there a rule?

    I have seen some fabulous shaped moulds for wax melts but I wondered if there was a rule to how thick they should be? Can they be too thick?
    Thanks!

    So long as they don't overhang the bowl of the melter when they're solid and don't overflow it when they're melted, they can be any shape you like.

          Russian dolls, cats, monkeys, diamonds, roses and stars ~ just checking they are all ok to use with wax.
          All so cute!

            Are they silicone moulds?

                I remember testing a few oil burners and I think the average was around 30g of wax maximum (around 2 tealights in weight)

                    I made my wax melts with Eco Soy XCEL but wondering if I should have used CB135? 4C's website says CB135 is best used for melts. Interested to see what others use.
                    Thanks!

                      I've noticed very little difference between waxes when it comes to making (and using) melts.

                        Good to know ~ I really don't want to be buying lots of different waxes.

                          Only thing I would say is all of the Soy container blends are quite soft so the melts can get damaged easily. I've made them with all three types of wax with no problems but noticed if they are stored loose for any time they don't look just as good as they did when made.
