  1. I'm getting sooo close, but still going through newbie speed bumps. A few things, I've finally settled on some great 3" straight sided tumblers. I use coconut/soy 83 wax and stick with an 8% fragrance load. So I'ved tried several wicks and I've decided the KISS* method. Given some good recommendations. I'm deciding between ECO and CD cotton wicks. Some of the issues I'm having are: With the ECO Sooting and smoking - more towards at the end of the burn (around 20th hour). This may have been due too big of a size 12, 10, 8. Size 8 seemed to be best but, tunneled at beginning 3-9 hour burns (although evened out towards the end). Nice flame size. Great hot throw. With the CD Mushrooms, flickering, tunneling. I'm at the beginning, of the burn phases hours 3 -6. Nice Flame size. Sizes I'm using are 10, 12, 14. The mushrooms were worse during the first burn. Flickering is worse at second burn, slight tunneling still an issue with 10 -12 sizes, flickering and mushroom worse with 14 . Great hot throw. So, I'm wondering if I should drop the fragrance load to 7% if this may help. Since I getting conflicting issues. Any thoughts? Thanks !!!
