So I made some wax tarts today. I used BrambleBerries advanced Ecosoya wax (so easy to work with!), Rustic Escentuals fragrance Raspberry Lilac and about 4-6 drops of Lilac liquid candle colorant from Rustic Escentuals.

I made the wax tarts and I did the pour more wax to prevent that sink hole. I unmolded them and the bottom of the wax tarts have this white area in the center. Like some candles I buy. It almost looks like a faint powder but I can't rub it away. Is it bad? Did I screw up and can I prevent it again?

Is the white part the part that was touching the mold? I've had that happen when using flexible/silicone molds the first few times.

No it's what is the bottom on the tart. It's where I pour the thin layer of wax to cover the little divot thing that happens with wax. It's like this white powder looking bit that hardens into it.

Candle ash. It is a side effect of using soy wax. Nothing to worry about, it is completely cosmetic. You can usually buff it off with some new pantyhose, but if it goes deep into the wax there is nothing to do for it.

Its kind of like soap ash, but for soy wax LOL :lol:

Here is a pic of candle ash, or "frost" on soy wax. Was very deep penetration too, so couldn't be buffed off.

Nah, it happens when you use 100% soy wax. Even adding 5% paraffin to a blend will reduce its occurrence. I've had maybe 4 or 5 fragrances frost with 95% soy 5% paraffin.
