Melting the Wax
Place pieces of wax into the melting pot, and place melting pot into steamer pot. When the water begins to boil, turn the heat down to a lower setting (medium or low). You will have successfully melted the wax when the contents are entirely liquid and no solid chunks of wax remain in the melting pot.
You can continue heating the wax to a slightly higher temperature (150 - 155 degrees F), which will produce more of a crystalline structure in the appearance of the candles when poured into a container.
soy candles tend to have a flaky crusty appearance on the tops, this is normal. **Cotton wicks are more delicate so trim your wicks gently. **Cotton wicks tend to bend at the tip so you might notice one side of the candle burning more then the other, this will usually even out, if it doesn't simply rotate your jar.
Proper sized wick ~ Thickness and length of the wick -The wick conveys the melted paraffin to the flame. Thicker or longer wicks burn more fuel. Manufacturers match the wick diameter to the candle size and composition, but wick length is determined by the user. A wick length over 1/4 inch will tend to convey excessive fuel and produce more soot. Use the candle quencher for this.
Air turbulence ~ A flickering flame emits more soot. Candles near doorways or traffic areas are subject to drafts and turbulence, and produce more soot. In addition to the number and type of candles present, there are several clues that tend to distinguish candle soot from other sources.
