464 Troubleshooting Tips

Not getting a smooth finish on the surface of your candles?

  • Try pouring 5-10°F (2.8-5.6°C) hotter.
  • Don’t let your candles cool on surfaces like marble and granite. These materials draw out the heat from the candles too quickly.
  • Try a second pour or a heat gun to smooth the surface.

Not getting a strong fragrance throw?

  • Ensure you are curing your candles for two weeks to get the best results from the fragrance.
  • Make sure you are adding fragrance at 185°F (85°C).
  • Re-examine the wicking.
  • Make sure you are evaluating the scent throw of the candle in an appropriately-sized space relative to the size of the candle.

Candle Maker's Notes:
This wax can be a little too soft for the summer heat. If you are shipping finished candles in hot weather, you may want to consider a soy wax with a higher melt point, like Golden Brands 444.

My last shipment came with one bag of wax totally opened and it was all over the box. I think it’s important to put the wax bag into another bag / ziplock. But beside that I have been using this wax for sometime and it’s awesome.

The only wax I have ever used for my business. Happy with the results. Miss the days when I could get 100lbs for $125!

Good product, too expensive now

I came here to order more wax and was disappointed to see the cost of the 10lb 464 soy wax has almost doubled since I first started ordering here in 2020. I understand price increases are everywhere and its not the fault of Candle Science. It gives me so much joy to make candles for myself and my family and friends, and I'm sad to have to give up this hobby. I really did enjoy working with this wax, so I will give it the stars it deserves.
