Martha makes a terracotta candle. This is a very bad thing


Recommended Posts

1. a small porous clay pot as a container

2. a wick (any wick will do apparently) secured with the same wax she's making the candle with

3. and way off center too

4. tape ? to keep hot wax from pouring out the bottom hole. OMG Who wrote this segment??
5. And worst of all, sharing this "tutorial"  with her enormous viewing audience.

Martha makes candle making look so easy.
Will wax leach through terra cotta?  There are a lot of terra cotta citronella candles on store shelves, and I've wondered.  Does anyone know if they use a sealant on those, and what kind of sealant would be appropriate?  I know they make a sealant especially for terra cotta, but I'm not sure if that would be right for candles.

Slightly off topic. Just saw video by Brambleberry, which is a respectable supply house. However her candle tin tutorial had unsecured floating wicks. Just pour the wax and plop your wicks in. This is a candlemaking kit. 

Add to that that she ignores wick recommendations and always goes bigger because she likes to smell them right away. Yikes
