When lighting your candle for the first time, burn it for 2-3 hours, until the entire top layer of wax becomes liquid to the edges. This will prevent the wax from tunneling and ensure it melts evenly all the way down.
Candles should not be burned for more than 4 hours at a time. Never leave a lit candle unattended or move it when the wax is still liquid. A candle is finished and shouldn’t be relit when 5-10 mm of wax remains or the metal wick holder becomes visible.
The key to perfect candle-burning experience is a short wick. Trim the wick to about 5 mm before each burn. This will avoid smoking, unnecessary ash, and overheating of the glass.
Always make sure the candle is on an even, heat-resistant surface and not placed directly in front of drafts.
Our colour-layered glasses are pigmented by hand and meant to stay in your home long after your candle has burned. They can be repurposed and given a new life in a multitude of ways: cocktail glass, succulent vase, decorative object, piece of a greater art piece, holder of jewelry or other miscellaneous objects of your choosing.
Once the candle has burned down to 5-10 mm of wax remaining, put the vessel in the freezer for several hours. Take it out and the last bit of wax will pop right out.
