WICK CENTRING
TIPS, TECHNIQUES &
REMEDIES

Scroll down to see our tips and techniques about centring your candle wicks

One of the most important factors which affects the performance of a candle is the position of the wick. The position and shape of your wick will always impact the quality and performance of your candle so it is important to always try to have it straight and centred.

Please note that wicks that have taken on a new position or shape can cause the flame to waver and potentially cause heat damage to the glass.

 

FOR MOST CONTAINERS OR GLASSWARE

To help produce a nice centred wick for container/glassware candles, we always suggest using our Wick Stickums (which come in both 15mm and 20mm sizes) to centre and secure the wick to the bottom of the container. To ensure a straight wick throughout the candle all the way to the top, you can also utilise Wick Holders.

 

FOR VOTIVES AND PILLAR CANDLES

We always recommend using our Votive Wick pins when making votive candles. For pillar candles we also offer the Mould Pin Locator which features several grooves to make it compatible with all of our moulds (big and small) as well as two different sizes of mould pins (Mould Pin [A] - suitable for the smaller diameter moulds and Mould Pin [B] - suitable for the larger diameter moulds).
