I don't like anything about this wax.
I had to play with the pour temp for every container.
The translucentcy is weird and sets with ripples. The cold throw is minimal. I will NOT use this again.

Without additives, the walls of pillars often sag with this wax but many additives will fix this. Epolene C-10 (gloss crystals) at .5-1% is my usual for a translucent look. The pre-blend pillar wax is opaque, as is a mix of this with 20% stearic.

I use this for my Cut N Curl Candles, pillars and votives and it works wonderfully. Retains color well and has perfect pliability for my cut n curl candles without the need for additives.
