    I am trying to make candles in the 2 ounce mini mason jars and am having a horrible time trying to wick them. I am using GB 464 soy with 10% Fragrance load. The candle has great hot throw but its burning to hot as the melt pool is about an inch or more. I started with an CD-4 wick and am now trying a ECO-2 but melt pool is still to big. Any ideas for the 2 ounce "mini Mason" jars? 2oz mini.jpg

    Yea, I know how they should burn and tried the ECO-4 also, with the same results. Just wondered if anyone else has had success.

    Also, if you go to the Jar section (candle science)and select the 2 ounce mini mason jar, it recommends to use HTP-41.

    Forget recommendations they are only a starting point, wicks burn differently with different fragrances and different loads. If the one they recommend for that wax and jar burns like that you need to go down a size at least. TBH I found the smaller I went the harder it was to wick as the wax melts so quickly.
