I first started with Golden 464 and then tried 415, but I think this is better than both of those. The tops dry much smoother than the 464! I have temperature fluctuations (seasonally) in my work studio, so I will say, if you are pouring this in colder weather in an unheated or under-heated room, you will get more wet spots happening. (I was able to reduce this with some heat lamps above them during the winter) I think the ideal room temperature is for this wax to dry the nicest is between 68-75 degrees. I still do a second pour most of the time for sink holes, which I've experienced with all types of soy wax, but right now, I'm pouring in a room that is about 73 degrees and get almost no wets spots and the tops of my 8oz candles often dry so perfectly that I don't even need to use a heat gun on them. The other two waxes I tried sometimes were grainy after drying and these can always be made smooth, with the heat gun, or if you are able to keep room temperature stable.
