"This may be a silly question. But is this the best wax for free standing candles from, for instance, a skull mold?"

"Simple, Gorgeous, and Easy!"
COMMENTS:  So far, I am loving this wax. I've never used a granular paraffin before, and it's wonderful. No more breaking slabs with a hammer and adding pieces to the melters. I'm moving the bags to a plastic tub with a lid, which lets me handle the bagged granules a lot easier, and it eliminates my concerns about a box and bag accidentally tearing and spilling. Because of the tiny granules, it seems to melt faster than slab wax unless I'm re-melting a cooled batch. After the first batch cooled, I noticed just how gorgeous the finish is. It's so smooth and pretty. It's very different looking from the mottling wax that I've used for ages. Un-molded candles have an almost creamy looking finish. The only down side I'm seeing so far is both hot and cold scent throw. I'm working on adjusting my formulas for this wax, because I make highly fragranced candles. Right now, the scent is a bit too subtle for what my buyers are used to.

"This is THE BEST PILLAR W..."
COMMENTS:  This is THE BEST PILLAR WAX I have ever used for our businesses. I have tried many others but they cannot compare to the Quality especially when it comes to ease of use & Scent Throw. Since KCW sold to RE it is a lot further to ship, but that doesn't matter at all...It is worth it! The KY143 Pillar Wax is almost as GREAT as KY FRAGRANCE OILS...They Blow All The Others Away! Advantages: GREAT SCENT THROW GREAT EASE OF USE I CAN'T DO BUSINESS WITHOUT IT:) Disadvantages: ABSOLUTELY NONE!!
