Pair of Long (16 inch) Hand-dipped Taper Candles in Parchment
All of our premium taper candles are produced by mother and daughter business, Smith and the Magpie, and are made using the highest quality, traditional, hand-dipped methods. Each batch is dipped over 35 times for a superior depth of solid colour.
Designed with weddings and events in mind, these beautiful high quality candles burn evenly for up to 12 hours, so you don’t have to worry about replacing them during a day-long event.
They are un-scented. Our candles burn with a beautiful steady flame and will only incur a minimal dripping, provided they aren’t exposed to draught.
Size 1: 16" tall - approx 1.8cm - 2cm diameter
Please note due to the hand-made nature of items, no two candles will be exactly alike and all measurements are approximate. The diameter of each candle will be between the two above dimensions and we cannot guarantee these exactly.
Always trim the wicks to 0.5cm before lighting.
CANDLE SAFETY WHEN LIT
Follow the 2 foot rule - don't place a burning candle near clothing, books, curtains or anything flammable. Place candle holders on a stable, heat-resistant surface that is sturdy and large enough to catch any melted wax. Keep lit candles away from drafts, fans and any air currents. Keep candles at least 10cm apart. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep or if the flame gets too close to the candle holder or container. A candle should not be burned for more than four hours at a time, or less than one hour. For a margin of safety, discontinue a burning a candle when 1cm of wax remains.
A candle that is well made using any variation of wax type should not create any smoke when burning. However, if the wick does become too long or a draught disturbs the flame, small amounts of unburned carbon particles, or soot, will escape as a visible wisp of smoke. No matter the wax type. This soot is not harmful and any candle will soot if the flame is disturbed. Our candles do not pose any adverse effects to the environment and the burning of our candles does not emit any hazardous substances. The bespoke blend of both mineral and vegetable waxes used to make our candles comes from highly refined materials and does not contain any harmful substances. This purity fulfills the highest quality demands and is tested on a regular basis. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding the use and make-up of our candles.
