Need help with Wicks ?


Recommended Posts

LOL, now that's a real pickle! The type of wick you need to use depends on lots of things, like the type of wax, the fragrance you are using, and the circumference of the jar. Sounds like maybe you need to get back to doing a little research! I'd start on google with "wicking charts" there are several out there. They may not make much sense however, unless you have a basic understanding of the different types of wax. Do you know what kind of wax you used? Did you make a pillar or a container candle?

I will head there now LOL ... I used a pre colred wax I had gotten last year , not sure at all about anything on it Just that it has Vybar and Steric Acid and Coloring added to it already . Some help I am huh LOL .

I made a free standing candle , It sure did smell good the little amount of time it did actually burn though LOL .

I will go to Google.Com now and look up the Wicking issues . TY for the suggestion :)

With your wick burning that fast, it sounds like you had a major air pocket in your candle. Did you poke your candle while it was setting up to uncover any air pockets??? Here's a couple sites that will help with your wick choices.
