blt212 Posted June 20, 2014 Share Posted June 20, 2014 So I'm trying to wick a 5" diameter pottery crock with c3 and citronella from NG. I've started with wood wicks but I don't think they are going to hold up with any wind. So far I tried 3-WW3's and got a full MP in an hour and blew out a couple of times, so went down to 3-WW2's and it's def burning slowly but the flames are weak and the throw is too and I'm sure they won't hold up to a slight breeze. What kind of wick should I be using....tried to find citronella wicks but not having much luck searching any of the usual candle suppliers except at the big wick places where you have to purchase 5000-10,000....also ordered some larger zinc's to see how they work. Would love some feedback since this is my first attempt at making a patio candle and not sure how big of a flame it should have....should I be tripling wicking or using one citronella wick. Thx for the help Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
