Golden Brands GW 464 Soy Wax Flakes - 50 lb. Case
Golden Brands GW 464 is a natural soy wax containing a soy based additive to reduce frosting and increase fragrance load. GW 464 is designed for use in container candles and blends well with other waxes, such as paraffin, slack, and microcrystalline wax. It is not recommended to blend GW 464 with beeswax. The lower melt point of this wax enables it to have improved jar adhesion and helps prevent wet spots. A heat gun may be necessary to smooth out tops on finished candles.

This wax is great, I will continue to use it for a long time. Any frosting or uneven tops can be fixed quickly with a heat gun. Happy candle making!
Soy Wax is Smooth

I like the fragrance load.... not a fan of the lumps left at cooling in the jars.

I've experimented with different types of jar wax and believe this to be the best for my usage. The 50lb box may be bulky and heavy but absolutely worth it.

The wax I had been using for years had been discontinued this was an easy wax to transition to. Beautiful smooth tops and great ht!
Not what I'm used to

SO I purchased this because as you may already know they discontinued the EcoSoya waxes to formulate a new one... It's not as easy and forgiving. You need to follow the directions exactly to get a good looking finished candle. After the burn test the scent throw ends up being very good. This wax is growing on me.

I'm newer to candle making and 464 was the first wax I ever tried and I had great results with it! I get a great hot and cold throw and smooth tops for the most part! Shipping is always fast with Flaming Candle and I love getting a free fragrance with my orders! Also great customer service!!! Excellent company! I recently tried and tested a different soy wax and went right back to the 464!
