Does the thickness of the jar affect the burn?

Recommended Posts

Ok, seems like I'm just full of questions lately.

I had a fellow chandler give me some apothecary jars the other day that she isn't going to use. They are 16 ounce Anchor Hocking Jars, I have been using 16 ounce apothecary jars from the Jar Store. The Anchor Hocking Jars are a little thicker than what I have been using.

My question is, if I use these jars am I going to need to retest? Or does a slight difference in thickness matter enough to affect the burn?

I got some of the thicker glass jars and really didn't like them for candles. Yes - I did have to wick differently when I tested so decided to not use them. I did come across a good use for them after having them for about a year, just the other day. In my opinion, they make good wickless candles so that is what I have done with them until they are all gone.:cheesy2: hth
