Standard 6 pc. Clamshell
Make wax melts and tarts quickly and easily with our crystal-clear clamshell molds. The Standard 6 pc clamshell holds 2.75 oz. of wax, and is the most common size in the market. Our clamshells accommodate high fragrance loads and pour temps up to 180°. They snap securely shut yet remain easy to open.
Made in the USA
Recyclable under code 5, which is accepted by most curbside services.
Details: Holds 2.75 oz. of wax (for all 6 melts). Max label area is 2 1/4 wide by 3 1/4 long. Melt size is 1" cubed. Outside dimensions are 4 1/4" long, 2 7/8" wide, 1 1/8" high.
Pro Tip: If you open the clamshell up all the way and make a crease in the spine, they'll sit nicely on the table without tipping.

I was expecting them to be a little bigger. I now have to put two of these together to make up one order.

I loved these clamshells. They were the only ones I would buy. I recently ordered 30. (3 packages of 10). I used the first 10 no problems as usual. Then went to use the next 10 and after I poured my wax, noticed it wasn't the same shape of top. There were notches. They were completely different clamshells than the norm. I went and looked at my other package of 10 and yep theyre different too. I can't use these for my customers, they make the wax look cheap by adding a notch at the sides and don't allow for a smooth side finish like the normal ones do. I wasted a pound of wax and frangrance and now I'm out 20 clamshells.

Out of the first 8 clamshells I wanted to fill, 2 of them leaked. A waste of materials, time and lost profit. I'm sorry I bought these, and I bought 2 cases. All of the other supplies I have purchased have been excellent. The clamshells are a disappointment.

I really do like these, BUT about 10% of them leak, so they're wasted. So that sucks. But with that said, I'd still order again. Just be prepared that some will leak (I ordered 90).

I love this product! I find I have extra wax when pouring candles & these molds hold just enough of what is left! My customers love them & have had no complaints about popping out cubes. I do suggest opening & closing the clamshells a few times before pouring into them to make it easier for your customers to open them! Keep this around forever!

I do like these, however I find that my customers have a very hard time getting them open. That is the only reason I will not order these particular ones again.

I love these and order by the case. I use GB444 soy wax and it works fine. The only down fall is that my customers always seem to have a hard time opening them.

I bought 90 of them & they are great! I use EcoSoya PB to make my melts & they look fantastic in the clamshell. Sturdy, product as described...I will be ordering more

These clamshells are so easy and perfect for using up extra wax when making jar candles! Thank you CS!

I make jar candles but I always seem to have a little bit of leftover wax so I figured I would try out these molds. I LOVE THEM! I was nervous at first because I was using EcoSoya Advanced Soy but it worked perfectly. I will definitely be ordering a larger quantity next time.

I always buy these from you guys. I love them. They are the most reasonably priced too, great quality, altogether, just a pretty wax melt pack they make. My customers love my products. Thanks Candle Science for helping me grow my business. Without you guys, I would have no business. Thanks again.

First time I have ever used a clam shell and it was definitely worth it esp for my 6 pks I sell. I love it and my customers did too

Great clamshells. I did lower my rating by 1 star because it seems like on my most recent order that they have changed brands/manufactures and they seem to be a slightly lower quality (thinner plastic, rough edges).

I had purchased clamshell tarts from another supplier..had to use a little tape to keep them closed. Not so with these high quality, sturdy clamshell tarts. once again, Candle Science impresses me with the high quality of their products. I just ordered more and am saving up to buy in bulk on these! :)

These are great! Thank you for carrying them. Great size for using up left over wax. The plastic is sturdy without being hard to open.

I use these clamshells all the time and I am very excited that you have decided to add them to your inventory. Candlescience is my favourite candle supply store and as you add more and more products to your inventory I will have less and less reason to shop elsewhere.
