Wick up or Down?


Recommended Posts

Since glass can heat up, thick glass will take more heat to get to a certain temperature than thin glass. If you have a given size flame, the thinner glass will heat up faster than thicker glass. Since we also know glass tends to insulate, then for a given size flame, more heat will be retained inside the candle container.

Since this essentially boils down to a 50/50 choice, my educated guess would be to wick down one size.

But I could be wrong. :grin2:
