RE: How to oxidate mesh
I presume then it is not necessary to cover the wick with eliquid and burn it off after torching?

RE: How to oxidate mesh
Nope, and you dont really want carbon on it if you can avoid it, carbon is not oxidisation, it will insulate the wick electrically, a bit, but it's fragile compared with a properly oxidised wick, easily damaged leading to shorts. IMO it's probably due to haveing primarily carbon acting as an insulator that people make wicks that work fine for a few hours and then become hotspot central.

RE: How to oxidate mesh
There is a more easy way: Pulse Oxidation

No more need to use Torchlighter or similar...

Another quick&dirty method is:
put liquid on and fire it like a candle
let it burn
repeat until it is dark grey - it also oxidise the surface

then its ready for use...

Notice:
If you follow my Tips&Tricks it could cause an intergalactic war with possible destroying of whole solar systems!

Yes it's raidys favorite methode, but it needs a long time. You can shorten the time when you first use a lighter an than fire it like a candel.
