Got the clean wax part down. I have the aluminum votive molds with the premade wicks. http://www.brushymountainbeefarm.com/Metal-15-hr-Votive-Mold/productinfo/544/
My issue is getting them out. I have tried silicone and tons of it. Wiping and spraying. When I do get them out, they are not smooth. They show where they were stuck to the side at some point.
What is the trick?
The only thing I can think of that might be throwing it off is the wax I am using. I am using some darker wax intentionally while trying to figure everything out. Maybe the lighter (purer) wax would release easier?
I am sure I have waisted at least 20 wicks now. The wicks are not a real big deal but the time between is getting nuts. I wanted to have a bunch ready by now for Christmas presents and I have a couple that might be "giftable".
