I'm new to candle making. I purchased this kit because I thought it would be a great introduction to candle making and the price was reasonable. It contains everything needed to make 12 candles. The instructions were very easy to follow. I felt such a sense of accomplishment after I poured my last candle. My house smelled incredible. My favorite scent is the Grapefruit & Mangosteen. Very refreshing fragrance. I did notice frosting and craters on the candle tops. I used my heating gun to fix those issues. I waited 2 weeks before lighting my first candle. The cold throw was awesome. I could smell it instantly when I took the lid off. I lit the Grapefruit & Mangosteen candle and let it burn for three hours. I couldn't smell a thing. The hot throw was just not there. The wick burned evenly and produced a great melt pool but no hot throw. When the candle cooled it had craters and the top looked very rough. So, the next day I lit the very vanilla candle. No hot throw at all. To sum it all up. I really like the candle making kit but I'm not a fan of the GW464 wax.
And so the search and testing begins for a wax that produces smooth tops and better HT.
