Hi I'm new to candle making and I had bought a candle melting machine. I can make the candle but the wick doesn't burn correctly and the candle doesn't burn all of the way. what am I doing wrong?
The wick may not be the right size. Underwicking gives the result you describe. Look on some sites that sell candle-making supplies. They often have guides to find the right wick for your project.
The wick you are using is likely not big enough, or you are not using enough wicks. There is a great wick suggestion chart on Natures Garden website that could help you.
Here is a link that might be useful: Natures Garden
I like to use cd18 wick, thet work great for me.
You must consider the size of the container you are using, when selecting a wick. Make sure you measure the diameter.
