Different flame length on same candles


 Share

Recommended Posts

These two candles are "identical" for all intents and purposes. I made them at the same time from the same pot of wax. Same wax, jar, wick, FO, cure time burn location, burn time. And, as far as I can recall, I cut the wick to the same length. Any difference in wick length is minimal at best. The attached pic is shortly after I lit them but they were doing the same thing yesterday after they'd been burning several hours 

 

So why might they be burning so differently?

The only things I can think of is if you added fo separately possibly the one on the left got more and it's too much or the wick was not what you thought.  I've managed to get a wrong size wick in my stack and it's not pretty, lol.  Providing they have the same airflow/temp in the room where burning they should burn the same.
