    Wicks get buried in candles for a number of reasons. For starters, the best length for the exposed part of the wick is about 1/4 inch. Any longer, the wick burns too fast; any shorter, it gets overwhelmed by melted wax. As for recovering a candle wick, the task is very different if the wax is melted...

    Instead of buying wicks at a craft store when you're making homemade candles, make wicks at home. when making a wick, make sure it fits the type of candle you're creating; if a wick is the wrong thickness, the candle won’t burn correctly. Thinner braided wicks are for smaller candles, and thicker strings are for bigger candles.

    Cool for decoration even if it doesn't burn really well. How to make a crayon candle.
