Tips and Tricks
The wax does not melt to the edges of the vessel: The first burn is the most important because wax burns based on memory. We recommend safely burning the candle for a couple of hours so that the heat from the wick can help the wax reach full melt pool. This will help prevent tunneling during future burns.
Flame is too small: Wick was likely cut too short and is now drowning in the wax. Light the candle for a few minutes and let the wax melt. Extinguish the candle and put a paper napkin in the wax to safely absorb and remove some of the excess wax. Discard the napkin and relight.
Flame is too high: Extinguish the flame and trim the wick to ⅛”
Soot is forming on the side of the vessel: Extinguish the flame and trim the wick to ⅛”. After the wax has completely cooled (roughly a couple hours after extinguishing), you can wipe the soot off the inside of the vessel.
