The metal sustainer used in combination with a wooden wick offers several advantages in candle making. Here are some of the benefits of using a metal sustainer:

  1. Stability and Support: The metal sustainer provides stability and support to the wooden wick, keeping it upright and centered within the candle. This ensures that the wick remains in the desired position throughout the burning process, preventing it from leaning or falling over. The sturdy nature of the metal sustainer keeps the wick in place, even as the wax melts and the candle burns down.

  2. Longevity and Durability: Metal sustainers are highly durable and can withstand the heat generated by the burning candle. They are designed to last throughout the entire burn time of the candle, maintaining their structural integrity. This durability ensures that the wick remains securely attached to the sustainer, allowing for a consistent burn and eliminating the need for frequent replacements.

  3. Efficient Wax Consumption: The metal sustainer assists in the even distribution of heat throughout the candle, promoting efficient wax consumption. It helps to dissipate heat and prevents localized overheating, which can cause uneven melting and excessive wax loss. By promoting a controlled and balanced burn, the metal sustainer contributes to maximizing the lifespan of the candle.

  4. Professional Appearance: Metal sustainers provide a professional and polished look to the finished candle. They add a sleek and finished touch to the base of the wick, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of the candle. This is particularly beneficial for candles intended as gifts or for sale, as it conveys a sense of quality and attention to detail.

  5. Compatibility with Different Candle Types: Metal sustainers are versatile and can be used with various types of candles, including container candles, pillar candles, and votive candles. Their universal design allows candle makers to use the same sustainer for different candle sizes and shapes, simplifying the inventory management process.

  6. Ease of Use: Metal sustainers are easy to work with during the candle-making process. They can be easily attached to the base of the wick, ensuring a secure connection. The pre-assembled wooden wick with metal sustainer combination eliminates the need for additional tools or complicated assembly procedures, saving time and effort.

Overall, the advantages of using a metal sustainer include stability, durability, efficient wax consumption, a professional appearance, compatibility with different candle types, and ease of use. These benefits make the metal sustainer an essential component in creating high-quality and visually appealing candles.

How To Use

Using a metal sustainer in candle making is a straightforward process. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use a metal sustainer:

Gather your materials: You'll need a metal sustainer, a wooden wick, candle wax, a container or mold for your candle, fragrance oils (if desired), and any other candle-making supplies.

Prepare your container or mold: Ensure that your container or mold is clean and dry. If using a container, place the metal sustainer in the center of the container's base. If using a mold, you can affix the metal sustainer to the mold using adhesive or by pouring a small amount of melted wax into the mold and pressing the sustainer into it until it sets.

Insert the wooden wick into the metal sustainer: Take your wooden wick and gently insert the base (the end without the tab) into the metal sustainer. Make sure the wick is securely held by the sustainer, and it stands upright.

Secure the sustainer in place: If using a container, you can use a wick sticker or adhesive to secure the sustainer to the bottom of the container. This will ensure that the sustainer remains in place as you pour the melted wax. If using a mold, the sustainer should already be securely attached.

Pour the wax: Melt your candle wax according to the manufacturer's instructions. Once the wax reaches the desired temperature, carefully pour it into your container or mold, making sure to avoid disturbing the wick and sustainer.

Allow the candle to cool and set: Let the candle cool and solidify completely. Ensure that the wick remains centered as the wax solidifies.

Trim the wick: Once the candle has fully set, trim the wooden wick to a suitable length, typically around 1/4 inch (6 mm) above the wax surface. This will help ensure optimal burning and prevent excessive flame height.

Light and enjoy: Your candle with the metal sustainer and wooden wick is now ready to be lit. Light the wick and enjoy the captivating flame and soothing ambiance it creates.

Remember to always follow proper safety guidelines when working with candles, including never leaving a burning candle unattended and keeping it away from flammable materials.

By following these steps, you can effectively use a metal sustainer to incorporate a wooden wick into your candle-making projects.
