Easiest Way To Wick This


 Share

Recommended Posts

I have a grubby loaf mold. I don't have any wick pins. So I'm looking for an alternative to them and since I've never wicked anything except molds with wick holes I have no clue as to how to go about wicking this. it is 6 1/2x4x3 inches. I don't know if it should be 2 or 3 wicks. I will be using straight paraffin. Any help or input will be greatly appreciated.

Without seeing a picture of it I would suggest wicking it after it comes out of the mold by drilling wick holes into it. With the length I would think at least 3 wicks but more likely 4. The best way to tell is look at wick chart of the wick you're going to use and then cut out 4 circles the diameter of it's burn and lay these across to get an idea 1. of placement and 2. how many you need.
