I make ceramic candle containers that vary in shape and size. Today I picked one that has been sitting on my bench to make a new candle. The first step to making the candle is knowing how much wax I will need. Here's how I do that. Step 1: Weigh the container. This one is 18.6 oz, or 527 grams. Step 2: Tare the scale. zero it out so you don't need to worry about the math in the next step. Step 3: Fill with water to the desired wax fill line and weigh again. This container takes 14.3 or so ounces of water or 405 grams. Step 4:
I am still having problems wicking my heavy bottom 13.5 oz. whisky glasses 3- 3/8 wide x 4-1/4 tall single cds12 & cds14 seem to be too hot, (high flame, deep small mp) has anyone used these glasses or similar size? would using 2 smaller wicks (cd4) work to get a better melt pool and not burn off the Fragrance so fast? I am using C3 soy wax
I'm having problems wicking a new batch of 464 in a couple of apple fragrances. Wicks that worked previously are too hot. Tried CD12 as well as wicking down with my Premiers. No hot throw. Stumped; then read a thread on double wicking 16 oz. tins. Has anyone double wicked a Mason or Ball pint jar with Premiers? Regular mouth so 2 1/2" opening. Just have no idea where to start or if two wicks would not work in this container. By the way, the new boxes of 464 have worked out for three of my fragrances with no changes in wicks. Thought I had this licked. Goldie
So I finally got around to testing my 4627 with Zinc wicks. My status jar (8 ounce, 3 1/4 diameter) worked amazing with one 60-44-18 6" Zinc Core wick I ordered from Lone Star. My square 8 ounce Libbey jar (3 1/2 diameter) didn't fare that well. The melt pool is not great, it doesn't reach the sides fully after a 2nd burn test. How would you guys up wick this one? I only have the 60-44-18 6" zinc core wicks. I haven't ordered any other zinc sizes. Would you double wick it with this specific wick or wait and order larger wicks to do a single wick test? Thanks guys.
