CaptnKush Posted February 28, 2019 Share Posted February 28, 2019 (edited) Do wicks really need to be stuck down? Was burning some test candles and didn't attach the wicks at base, I just poked a hole all the way down to bottom of jar and put wick in, and done. I read some of you do this on testers. After several days of burning, the candle finally went out and I noticed there was about 3/4 of an inch of wax in container and wick had fallen to bottom. To me this seemed like a good thing in that people couldn't burn it all the way down putting excessive heat at bottom of jar. It also makes it easier to deal with wicks especially if you need a quick wick change, and you can call it a safety candle since it puts itself out when it gets to that point of wick falling over and going out, OR is this a no no? I know this would only work in taller jar candles not tins. Edited February 28, 2019 by CaptnKush Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
