    Default pre dipping wicks

    Those of you who sell alot of candles...do you pre-dip the wicks before pouring the candle ?

    We do not prime the wicks in our candles. IMO priming the wicks is unnecessary and a waste of time. I also think primed wicks are somewhat unattractive on the shelf.
    All that said, there are some who feel priming is absolutely needed.
    Test your mold both ways and see if you can tell the difference. We sure can't.

    Thank you. When I have tested I didnt find any difference either.

    Made them for years w/o priming the wicks. However, in competition (Honey & Wax Shows) they want to see the wicks coated.
