Hi all =) I am kinda new here... I have been making Candles for several months now and am coming up with a slight problem... The last batch of Candles I have poured from my metal molds have been marred when coming out of the mold... is there any way to fix this? What could cause such a problem?

Hi - I guess it would depend on what you mean by "marred". If the candle's outer surface is tearing when you pull it out then it probably means the candle has not cooled completely. If there are pits or bubbles, you may have added too much fragrance oil for your wax type. If there are lines around the candle, you could be pouring your wax too cold or your mold was cold. Some of these imperfections can be fixed by buffing them with a scrap piece of an old pair of nylons or you could carefully heat the surface with a heat gun. Additionally, if your molds are new, they may not be seasoned. Make sure they are clean and that you have used enough spray mold release. If none of this fits your situation, please let me know a little more and I will get back to you.
Thanks and good luck on your next batch!
