  1. I am using 1 wick. I forgot to mention that I am using a FO from JustScent and I'm pouring an 8% fragrance load since I read on Flaming Candle that the 4630 can take between 8-10% FO. I read FO info was important for newbies to include in their posts. I would ideally not like to double wick because I prefer the single wick look, but if it's what I need to do, I'll do it. You don't think 1 wick is practical? Yankee's candles are 4 inches wide and they just have 1 wick. But of course I have no idea what wax they're using, etc.

  3. I bought a bunch of these jars from Candlescience. And I cannot for the life of me get them to wick. I'm using a 4630 wax and have tried both HTP and Zinc wicks. I got the sample packs from CS also, so I've tried every size of each. I would try a new wick but I wanted to check in and see if anyone has had luck wicking jars like these with 4630, or any other paraffin wax. My flames have been either too small (tunneling), or too large (flickering, sooting). I heat til 180, pour at 160, and the candles set perfectly, but they burn horribly. Any insight?
