* Note: Selecting the right wick is one of the more challenging aspects of candle making.  This chart is meant to be a guideline only, based on the wick manufacturer's guidance and our own experience.  If you're making a lot of candles, we recommend making a test candle first to make sure the correct wick was selected and the candle will burn properly.    If made properly, a candle will meet the following criteria: 1)Consistent flame size, 2) Good relationship between the candle diameter and flame size, 3) Well-formed wax pool, 4) Candle burns with minimal smoke, 5) Minimal wick blooming or "mushrooming" while burning, 6) Minimal dripping.
