New pouring/melting pot discoloration

BeHappy1August 2, 2014

Hi all, I'm new to this forum and candle making. I have lots of old and unsightly candles that I decided to melt down and make new candles in canning jars. I purchased a typical pouring/melting pot to make a double boiler. Everything went fairly well for my first try (beginners luck, lol), but I noticed that the pot is now discolored on the outside but only up to where it was submerged in the water. I'm just curious if this is normal or if I might have done something wrong. I know it won't affect it's function and it looks fine on the inside.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

This is normal. The discoloration is probably from minerals in the water.
