  • Wax pouring Temperatures?

    I have been using cold pour for my candles for years, but I am experimenting with other techniques including soy wax, but my moulds keep leaking and I think the problem maybe my pouring temperatures
    Has any enlightened being (Lisa?) Know of a chart for pouring temps or any general advice, Pleeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaase!!!

    Hi Tracy

    I too work with soya wax and the recommended temperature for pouring is 55 degrees centrigrade, however you need to melt it to approximately 65 degrees and allow to cool before pouring.

    With regards to leaking moulds... have you tried mould sealant around your wick? Also, try filling your mould with water to find out where they are leaking from in case you have a small crack or hole.

    Hope this helps,
