I what to check with you C3 users about which wick do you get the best hot throw from? I currently use HTP wicks but have been testing CD wicks since some people say they have better hot throw than HTP wicks. I've heard some people like to use Eco wicks with C3. Just looking for feedback as to what you have found to have the best results. I'm personally not seeing any difference between CD and HTP. Thanks in advance....
Alright I am now a couple months into my candle journey. I am working with a 8oz tin and Naturewax C3. The supplier suggested 1212, it's the only wick which has given a full melt pool, having that said, that wicks ends up drowning with a few scents towards the bottom. So now I try wicking down, I did 104, it didn't do a full melt pool. I figured it would end up burning the rest of the wax off the sides as it melted down and heated up, the wick just keeps bowing down! Like no matter what size this issue keeps happening?? Is it just HTP that's the issue? I just don't see how a significantly smaller wick can drown out but not get a full melt pool. please help!
Hi all. I'm new to this board. My fiancé and I have started making candles. We are using 1 pint wide mouth mason jars. We are using 4627 with 25% natural wax and %8 fragrance. I have used both eco wicks and HTP wicks. We are finding that the candles stop burning 1 inch to 1 1/2 inches from the bottom for a light fragrance (coconut and lime) and stops burning as little as half way down with a vanilla. The jars are around 4 1/2 inches tall by just over 3 wide. I have doubled wicked with up to 2x HTP73 In the light fragrance and 2x HTP93 with the vanilla. I've also used eco and double wicked up to 2x ECO1.5. I found the Eco's stopped Sooner than the HTP. The flame becomes lazy and small and eventually just burns the wick down to 1mm and all but dies. I've tried using a different wax, straight 6006a, and found the same thing. I find it hard to believe that I need to go higher than 2xHTP73 for any fragrance. Can anyone possibly give some guidance? It would be so much appreciated.
