Dealing with wax is a rather messy affair. Especially as it melts, droplets can get anywhere and everywhere, and you won’t even know it until the wax dries. Set up newspaper or paper towels around your work area.
There are several different kinds of wax to choose from. One pound of paraffin wax by weight will equal approximately 20 oz of liquid melted wax.
A flame that’s too large can produce smoke and soot. It can also make the candle too hot, and in some cases, this can cause the container to break. On the other end of the spectrum, if a wick is too thin, it won’t become hot enough to melt through the entire candle but will instead create an unsightly pit at the center of the candle.
