SKU: PW2322A
    Your Price $15.49


    Glass Glow for containers is made from 100% Palm and produces a beautiful crystal-like appearance.


    • Available by the 10 lb. Bag

    • Melting point: 144 deg. F

    • Available in granulated form.


    The exquisite beauty of the crystals are enhanced by the warm glow of the flame.  The appearance of the crystals can vary with different fragrance oils and different pour temperatures.


    • Recommended pour temperatures are in the range of 180-210 deg. F.


    • For best results, we recommend pouring at 200 deg. F.  We recommend insulating the containers with bubble wrap or a towel to allow the crystals to form optimally.


    • We recommend using Peak Prisma liquid dyes for best results.  Liquid dyes are more concentrated than dye chips and will color palm easier.


    • Recommended fragrance useage is 3%.  Use fragrance oils made for candles.


    • Exhibits very good adhesion to sides of container.


    • A low shrink wax.  Larger narrow jars may require a second pour, where as smaller jars (such as our 9 oz. hexagon jars) only require a single pour.


    • For layering, we recommend pouring the first layer at about 205 deg. F.  Allow the first pour to harden and form a wax layer and cool, but not completely cool.  Pour the second layer hotter, around 210 deg. F.

    Besides heating the jars, you can set them on a rack or silicone baking mat to insulate them. I don't know if bubble wrap would work, the jars get really hot and it might melt onto them...

    This wax is amazing!It's absolutely beautiful, it makes any color you add just come alive with shimmery, crystal-like beauty, & the cold & hot throw is great!It's very easy to work with, too.I cannot recommend this wax enough.Word of advice-heat your jars before pouring, or the shimmery crystals will only form on the top, not the sides.Try this wax, you'll be thrilled with the gorgeous candles you'll create with it :-)

    Have used both the sparkle and glass glow palm waxes for a couple of years now and refuse to use anything else for container candles - the crystallization is so beautiful regardless of the color/tint of the dye. The scent throw is also really good (I tend to use more fragrance amounts for the smaller containers, like the 9 oz hex and mid-size to smaller tumblers, about 1/2 oz or more, but only 1/2 oz for up to 20 oz container. Bigger than that gets a 3/4 to a full bottle - everyone I make candles for wants the scent strong, lol. As for wicks, you are better off using the RRD only since other types will sputter or barely burn (won't stay lit). You just have to keep the wicks trimmed so you don't have a giant flame. As for size of wicks versus container size, I do as follows: for all containers 9 oz and lower, I like the RRD-40. For the prestige 11 oz and other 11 to 12 oz, I think the RRD-47 works great. For the 14 to 16 oz, I use RRD-50. For 20oz and up to 28 oz, use the RRD-55. Of course there are always exceptions... mainly the tumbler-type containers require 2 wicks, so instead of an RRD-50 centered, I use two RRD-29s on up to RRD-37s, depending on the diameter of the container's mouth. The results of using wicks as I specified allows for the wax to tunnel a short ways so you can admire the glow of the light thru the colored wax (the glow and sparkle of the crystals is beautiful, but as the melt pool lowers, so does the amount of wax that lingers on the sides. Once the pool is at the base of the container and gutters out, there should be a little wax left behind. When I get to that point, I break what wax remains into chunks and combine other leftovers with them into a 9 oz hex, stick a leftover cut piece of wick in the center and now I have a new potpourri candle to enjoy! Hope this helps those of you wondering what wicks/size to use. But, honestly, experimentation is the best way to find what you personally prefer. Thx and Happy Candlemaking!😁

    Put your jars on cookie sheets in cold oven, heat to 180 or so degrees while melting your wax, pour wax into jars, turn off oven and wait. I usually do a batch at night after dinner or so and they are just beautiful in the morning. AND...I love peaking at them through the oven glass. I'm so impatient. No need to wrap them or anything. Just try not to open the oven. I know.. it's hard, but the results are amazing. Good times, great fun.

    I love this wax. I make candles from beeswax, soy, paraffin and palm. This wax is my favorite to work with. It throws scent no matter what fragrance i use, unlike finicky soy. Wicking will be different from other waxes, because Palm is a totally different wax. CSN 12 or CSN 14 work best in my 3 inch diameter jars. I do NOT wick for full melt pool. Rather i let it tunnel for the first inch or two. Then the palm wax "weeps" from the sides into the melt pool giving both a great glow and awesome hot throw, CDN wicks in the same sizes are my second choice. Forget everything you know about other waxes and work with this wax the way it wants and you will never fail.
