I make candles. When I make candles in glass jars I noticed they do not burn evenly. How do I fix?
I am new at candle making. My candles are made by pouring premium (paraffin I think) candle wax into glass jars. When lit for a while the wax does not burn evenly across the top of the candle. I heard that the wax is too hard to allow an even burn. During the process of making the candle, is there something I can add to the wax so that it comes out softer so it burns evenly?
It may be the wicks you are using. Some wick makers douse them in too much paraffin, which effects the burning process. If you see your wicks appear to be completely filmed over by paraffin, try changing to paraffin-free ones and test the outcome.
