problem making soy candles

live4theseaJanuary 5, 2012

can anyone answer why i have a funnel type indentation around the wick area in all my container soy candles??

when i poured the wax in the glass containers it filled perfectly, but upon cooling, formed a space around the wick...when i light the wick, it fills in nicely, but it happened on about half of the candles...thanks

If you are pouring your wax when it is still too hot, it will form that kind of indentation. Do you check the temperature before pouring? I like to pour when the wax is around 110 F.
