The Candle Life by Tamara Mayne of Brooklyn Candle Studio
UK Edition. It takes patience, but if you melt the wax all the way across every time you burn, the surface of the candle will stay flat and the sides of the jar will stay clean, all the way down until the candle is spent. I let this candle melt all the way across every time I burned it, hence the flat surface. I know from experience that it's hard to find enough time for a proper burn.
The solution? Buy a candle with two or three wicks. More flames means more heat — which leads to a quicker melt. On that note: Be wary of extra-wide candles that only have one wick. If the candle surface has just one wick and a diameter of more than 3 or 4 inches, don't buy it. One wick will never produce enough heat to melt it all the way across. Do your best to keep your burning candle away from fans, air conditioners, open windows, or heavily trafficked areas where people walk back and forth a lot.
Moving air can disturb the flame, leading to even more unsightly black marks on the glass. Bad burning technique on the left, good burning technique on the right. Caroline Praderio. Facebook Icon The letter F. Link icon An image of a chain link.
