we are planning on doing a centerpiece with lots (ok, 6ish) pillar candles in glass cylinder vases of different heights. we’re pretty much all set to go but i just remembered how cylinder vases can get all soot-y and blackish at the top of the glass after awhile … any tips on how to keep this from happening?
unfortch, we have to keep the candles in the vases … those good ‘ol venue rules. 🙂

If I remember correctly a short wick is key. When there is a lot of extra the soot you get is from the burning of the wick and not the wax. Also keep them out of big drafts. =)

Your wick needs to be no more than 1/4 inch long when you light the candle. Soot is inevitable if you burn the candle longer than 3-4 hours in a container without cutting the wick again. I’m a candle maker…I know.
