Does cure time effect the burn...

Recommended Posts

I think it does with the NatureWax C3 and palm wax I use - the structure of candle wax is made of of tiny crystals which are not as strong right after cooling as they are in a few days. I think this makes a difference in the burn; however, I have not tested to see if curing makes enough of a difference to change wicking sizes... I always just wait. Perhaps you could test this and let us know! :)

When I'm testing just for wicks/burn I never let it cure. I will pour one day and test burn it the next day, never had 'bad results' from not curing it--meaning, the results are the same that day as they are when I burn the candle 2 weeks later! This is what I've found in the 415 wax.
