Hi, new here to CraftServer. Despite searching old posts and reading through a few that were on the topic of wicking the igi 6046 paracoco wax blend, I did not see a real definitive answer from many as to what wick worked best in their trials. I believe there was one who said they had the best luck with an htp62 in a 3" round container. I'm wondering (especially since one of the posts was from over a year ago) if anyone has made any progress and what container they're using. We're dead-set on these 3" glass cubes and have used both 100% soy and tried joy wax. Neither of us were really feeling the soy, and the joy wax we like but we want to 1. go with a wax that is available from more than one supplier in the event we cannot get it from one, 2. hopefully minimize our shipping costs having multiple suppliers available (we currently live an hour from one that offers pickup and 4 hours from another, AND we are a military family so we may end up close to yet a different supplier later.) We'll be picking up the igi6046 but unsure what wicks we should try in this 3" cube. Some in facebook groups say double-wick but one person said she manages the cube with a single lx22 (but didn't name what wax she was using either.). If we have to double, we'll need to pick up some much smaller wick sizes (I think smallest we have at the moment is a CD12). The CD18 seems to do alright in these cubes with the joy wax, but then we get some mushrooming too. We liked the idea of wood wicks and have tried double wicking with small woodwicks but I foresee and issue with our test burns so far in that the wood itself isn't burning fast enough (but wax is cleaning the sides and we don't have soot on the sides.) I also wondered about a ribbon wick. Has anyone tried a ribbon wick in their testing of 6046? We haven't tried a ribbon wick at all in anything yet, so I'm unfamiliar with their burning "personalities" lol Thanks for any input. Enjoying this site so far! Lots of information!
