How to prevent candle tunneling, and if it occurs, what can be done to fix it?
To prevent tunneling, allow the candle to burn long enough for the wax pool to reach the edges.
If tunneling occurs, here are some tips to fix it:
Use a heat gun or a hair dryer to carefully melt the surface wax, allowing it to level off and reach the edges of the vessel.
Place a strip of aluminum foil around the upper portion of the vessel, leaving the center exposed. This will concentrate more heat on the wax and help it melt evenly.
