Sticky Wicky

Recommended Posts

Another newbie question. I was using stickums to anchor my wicks and found that hot glue seems to work better. Is the purpose of sticking down the wick just to hold it centered while the wax cools or does the wax pool as it gets close to the bottom cause movement of the wick? If the hot glue melted would the wick slide?:confused:

I tried using super glue and it didn't adhere. Tried using the tabs you can buy at WalMart and the like- but once the candle got too hot, the wick floated... I stand by the wick stick-ems. The ones with tabs are great, too...

They do not try to move or float!

Just my personal experience after making hundreds of container candles. :)
