This wax has a different look to it before even taking it out of the bag then once handling it, it is dry and crumbly. I was expecting a creamier wax. I tested it in a 12oz jar with the recommended wicks and a CS holiday fragrance oil. I heated to approx 185-190, transferred to a pouring pot with FO already measured and waiting. I gently stirred for two minutes then poured into preheated, pre-wicked jars. I had a tiny bit left over so just filled one clamshell. It took a longer time than I expected to set up then revealed sink holes. On a positive note, it appeared to set up better in the clamshell. I'm not sure, based on my experience, that I would use it with larger vessels but perhaps it will function and set up properly in small votives, tea lights, or even clamshells. It has a great cold throw but waiting to light candles to test for HT after giving it more time and using a heat gun to fix sink holes. I will be testing the performance of the clamshell after proper setting as well, but the cold throw is great.
