aviator girl Posted March 10, 2010 Report Share Posted March 10, 2010 Okay this may be too many questions for one post but here goes. Let me start by saying that for the most part I am happy with my current choice of wax and wicking.I have been using 6006 (nothing added to it although I think I might try the 85% 6006 and 15% ezsoy once I get this figured out) and zinc wicks.I am happy with the zinc wicks EXCEPT for the mushroom. They aren't even bad on some of my candles but I keep mine trimmed. So I am trying a couple of new things. I have orders for the WU lower smoke zinc wicks and am picking up some CDN's this weekend. In the meantime I want to play with the CD's. I want to see how they burn, mushroom etc. in comparison.I have a sample pack of CD's so I only have 5 each to play with and would love some advice on where to start.I currently am testing on 11 and 20 oz tureens. So the diameters are 3 1/4 and 3 3/4 respectively.With the zinc wicks I double wick both of these. Do I do that with the cd's or do I try a single wick. With only 5 of each to play with I'll run out fast if I totally screw this up. I can always buy more but am lost as to where to start. Do you think I should double wick them with a cd 8 to start.I have tried to read as much as I could to figure this out but am so lost because as you know there are so many variables: wax, container, fo, dye, wicks. Everyone uses different things so I am not even sure where to start. Is there a chart that compares zinc and cd's? I know candlescience has a chart but they don't have zincs listed so I can't compare there.So just to re-cap: 6006/6-10% FO depending on type/ small amount of dye. 3 1/4 and 3 3/4 diameter tureen containers.Thanks!
