    Which of these 3 cases do you think shows the correct amount of Tempilaq?

    I'd say the middle one. But shouldn't it be on the outside and a across the shoulder?

    I believe 750ᵒF Tempilaq is blue (and would be normally used right inside the neck). What temp is that yellow?

    (But) assuming that's 750-ish fluid any of the cases would be fine as you're just looking for melt/color change. (In fact the one on the left would be the most efficient use of the fluid)

    If using 475-500ᵒF Tempilaq, it would go on the case body 1/4" below the shoulder.
