Create stunning pillar candles with IGI's 6028 Paraffin/Soy Pillar Blend Wax. This paraffin/soy pillar blend offers the fragrance throw and easy burning of paraffin, with the appealing look and usability of soy. IGI 6028 resists frosting, requires no additional additives, and easily incorporates candle dye. The soy content in this wax results in lighter pastel shades when dye is used. We recommend a maximum of 1 oz of fragrance per pound (6%) for pillar and votive candles, and a maximum of 1.5 oz of fragrance (9%) per pound for wax melts and tarts.

Heat to 185°F using a double boiler. Add 6% of fragrances (1 oz./lb. of wax), remove from heat, and stir for two minutes. Pour at 180°F (+/-5°F). Let cool for 4-6 hours. Fill remaining sinkholes with a second pour. Wait 24 hours before removing molds. Allow candles to cure for five days for optimal fragrance throw.

-The wax slab is easy to break into meltable pieces
-This wax is opaque and dyes well
-There were no sink holes so a second pour was not necessary
-The candle popped right out of the mold at room temperature as soon as it had cooled
-The scent throw was pretty good.
This wax is so beautiful and creamy takes colors very well. Pops out of molds and clamshells with no problem. The cold throw was great after 2 weeks. I heated to 190 added Fo 180-185 FL was above 12% stir for 2mins +. HT was very light almost faint. I still will use this but, I will mix it with paraffin wax for a better HT throw and use this wax to help with the appearance.
This wax is great! I usually blended paraffin with soy anyways in my pots, so it was nice to find a pre-mixed slab. The wax comes out beautifully with really vivid colors and a great texture/finish.
I simply love this 6028 wax! I've been blending colors based on my old Pantone mixing book. The finish is outstanding. I had minimal tunneling with pillar molds. I would like to know the percent of soy vs paraffin. Thanks for offering this wax!!
