Making candles, is there a way not to make the wax sink around the wick?
i have been making candles for awhile now and I can not find a way to keep the middle sinking near the wick. is there a secret out there to keep the wax from sinking?
That sinking is called shrink and it’s completely normal for some types of wax, especially paraffin. I have no shrink problems when using palm wax or Advanced Ecosoya Container wax (NOT the 135, it frosts). I get my wax from http://www.peakcandle.com/category/Waxes.aspx
