I didn't want to invest yet in a bunch of supplies since I didn't know if I wanted to stick with this or not (making Xmas gifts for now). After heavy research and making 5 imperfect candles, this is how I finally figured out how to make beautiful candles with very few store bought supplies:
1) Clean glasses and ceramic cups/bowls/jars thoroughly. I used mason jars I had at home and bought a few ceramic cups from thrift stores.
2) Melted wax flakes in a cleaned tin can (ones that hold canned food), inside a heavy-bottomed pot. Don't turn up heat too high.
3) Use candy thermometer to track temperature while gently stirring flakes until melted. Remove can holding wax from heat when thermometer reads 180-185 degrees F.
4) Depending on type of fragrance you're using, let wax cool until you're able to add fragrance. I used fragrance oils from Candle Science ( B0092RNCSY most of which were safe to add at 180 degrees F.
5) While wax cools, thread wicks through wick tabs ( B001683N86 I fray the end that's going to the bottom of the candle so when I make the wick taught later I won't pull the wick out. If you don't want to purchase wick tabs I found this method to also work ([...]
6) If using glass, run it under a hair dryer or hot water to warm up the glass. This will help the wax bond with the glass instead of making holes along the sides.
7) Place the wick and wick tab inside the container. Pour in just enough wax to cover the top of the wick tab. Don't worry about the placement--just make sure it's at the bottom and covered with wax. Let the wax you just poured cool until it's slightly opaque (should not be liquid, but not completely solid), and then press wick tab down gently (I used a chopstick) into the middle of your container. This wax will harden over the wick tab so it'll stay anchored at the bottom. By the time the wax hardens, the rest of your wax should be ready to pour.
8) Let the rest of the wax continue to cool until 110-115 degrees F. Pour in the rest of the wax, leaving some space at the top of the container so wax won't overflow when burning later.
6) Wrap a rubber band around the center of a pen or pencil. *Gently* guide the end of the wick into the rubber band. Make the wick stand taught and straight and rest pencil or pen over the top of your container.
6) Let the candle cool undisturbed. Don't make the mistake I made by putting it in the fridge! It'll cause cracks over the top if you cool it too quickly. I remove the rubber band off the wick when it feels pretty stable (usually no longer than 20-30 min. after wax poured).
7) If cracks or any other imperfections do appear over the top, run a hair dryer over the top on low. It'll melt the top layer and settle beautifully with a slightly frosty appearance.
8) In 24 hours your candle will be ready to burn! I hope these tips can help another beginner out! :)
I melted this wax in a double boiler made from a saucepan and cereal bowl, and ladled it into a cheap flowerpot from the dollar store. I am absolutely thrilled with the results.
The wax melts fast and clean, with a very mild, slightly savory scent. It's yellowish when melted, but it hardens to a perfect snowy white. I made a test candle with some Gulf paraffin from Walmart and had some serious contraction problems as it hardened (leaving a big divot in the center), but the soy wax didn't seem to contract nearly as much. The surface finish was smooth and attractive.
But the real test came when I lit it for the first time. I get three perfect, clean, uniform flames from the three wicks spaced 2-3 inches apart. They make great melt pools, which eventually grow together after 30-45 minutes of burning. The flames are stable and strong even in windy conditions. The success was probably partly attributable to the good wicks, but the wax is definitely doing its job. The candle doesn't put off any appreciable scent (unless you put your face right down in it), which is exactly what I wanted.
Misc. notes: The wax flakes came shipped in two separate non-resealable five-pound bags. The bags were inside another bag, which was inside the shipping box. I didn't have any of the open-package problems people are experiencing. The price for the 10lb quantity is amazing at the time of this writing. It's just about the cheapest wax you can find, so the quality was an extremely pleasant surprise. I figure I can make nice candles for my family for Christmas, since they would all appreciate lack of scent. All told, I have enough supplies to make probably five large three-wick container candles, for less than $30.
Echoing what others have said, this stuff is probably too soft for freestanding candle types.
Forgive the artsy picture, it was the only one I had at the time.
I had only one issue with using it, but I'm convinced it was a user error which was quickly corrected. I think I waited too long to pore the first set of candles. I was trying to wait until the product was 100 degrees F, but I had better results with 115-120 degree pores from them on. The only difference was the smoothness of the finish on the top.
I've had no issues with the look of the candles after multiple burnings. They melt well, and harden up nicely once you blow them out.
I heated the wax to 140 on the stove while stirring, let them cool to 120 before adding essential oil scents and pored once it reached 115-120. Clean-up was a breeze. All it took was hot, soapy water in the sink and a quick run through the dishwasher and all residue was gone.
I was very happy with this product and will buy again when my supplies run out.

It weighed 9.01 oz
Just call it 9lbs of wax if that's all you're selling.
Very easy too use
I made 12, 5ounces candles and still have tons of wax left
Very good value for money
Je recommande d’y mélanger 10% d’huile végétale (huile de coco liquide/fractionnée) pour que la cire soit plus lisse dans votre contenant.
