What did I do wrong? I filled various cups/pots/egg cups last night and almost all have sunk a little in the middle. I found it quite tricky to get the wicks where I wanted them too! I used clothes pegs to try and keep them in place but my pegs are obviously not suitable for such a task as they kept slipping into the melted wax!!
I did heat them up, maybe not long enough - though they were very hot when I took them out of the microwave!! I've sent a couple out to my family for them to try out and see if they're smelly enough so will wait and see what they think then maybe try topping up the next batch if they sink too!!
I bought some lovely espresso cups and saucers yesterday from Whittards. £4 for 4 cups/saucers!! I'm going to fill them next.
oh my god you are scaring me, am planning to make candles for xmas gifts, when buying the wax i got a real sinking feeling, 'like what the hell am i thinking' and now there is more panic, i have bought little metal buckets, will they be ok?
