It is very popular at the moment to make artistic candles with irregular shapes without containers.
It's very difficult to find the correct wick as there are in those candles different diameters to consider. It's an even more difficult task if you are using vegetal waxes.
We want, generally speaking, to obtain that lantern look, like a tunnel in our candles, to make them last, in their original shape as long as possible.
We are focusing on vegetal waxes with our suggestion of wicks. We recommend 100% cotton wicks flat because we want to regulate the heat, we don't want wicks with paper or other fibers because we want them to burn "less hot" so they won't melt your molds right away. Flat wicks tend to curl easier and more consistently and were designed originally for pillar candles.
We are offering two different types of wicks Pure Cotton BK and Pure Cotton MG ES to cover a bigger diameter range
MG ES is also great for vegetal stearin candles.
If your diameter is near 50 mm try MG wick first.
If you are using vegetal stearin as your wax
Important note: This is just a starting point recommendation. Depending on the wax you are using, fragrance and color dyes the wick might change quite substantially. It's all about testing.
The metal sustainer has a 15 mm diameter with a 3 mm neck.
