undisturbed candles at an ambient temperature of 70° F (21.1°C). The
containers should be about 1/2 inch (1.3 cm) apart to allow air circulation for
even cooling. The container should remain open during cooling for at
least 24 hrs (large candles may require longer times). Slower cooling
will encourage container adhesion while quicker cooling will encourage
container pull away. Golden Wax 464 is designed to adhere to the glass and
should be encouraged to do so. Candles should be allowed to sit
undisturbed for 48 hours before test burning.
