How do I get mottling without the candles sweating?
Getting a candle to mottle consistently without getting the scent to “bleed out” is a balance between using the correct amount of scent, the proper wax and how it can be improved with a wax additive. Our best recommendation would be to use the 4045H wax, about 4-5% fragrance, and about 1% Vybar 343 as the wax additive. For those not familiar Vybar 343, it is a recently introduced product that has been designed to assist in holding in the fragrance while still letting the mottling occur. Standard Vybar 103 and 260 were designed to eliminate the mottling. This new product has been very successful in this application.
