Wick problems...


 Share

Recommended Posts

The candle below has a 24 ply cotton wick. I was thinking the wick is too small because it's kinda starting to burn a hole down the middle...but maybe it's too big because the flame is too big and smokes. So which is it??? Too big or too small? I could try a 30 ply wick to solve the tunnel problem...but that would make the large flame problem worse. I've been working so hard to try to get the candle to LOOK right that I haven't been spending much time on getting the wick right...but apparently it's time I started. :)

Scented...I burned it for about 2 hours last night. Then trimmed the wick this morning before lighting it again.

Top...the only additive was 1 tsp per pound of vybar. And the wax is 1343. Should I possibly increase that? Or add stearic you think?
