Did I smother it?

Recommended Posts

Normally when I make container candles, I allow them to cool in the warm oven overnight (without lids).

I bought some 8 oz jelly jars and decided to pour just one last night. Instead of doing my oven method, I simply placed the lid on the jar after pouring. By the time it cooled, it had a large crack down the side and a crack & a hole right in the center.

By putting the lid on right after pouring, did I by chance smother it or something?

I use KY Perfect Blend and I normally use the oven method; otherwise, I end up with sinkholes. I was thinking the lid would allow it to cool slower as well.
