Creating
The root of the manufacturing technology of carved candles is in the 16th century, the elegant BAROQUE period. The preparation technique is quite complicated, as well as extremely fascinating.

1. The first step is to dip the cast of hard paraffin into liquid colorful paraffin. It is necessary to monitor the temperature of the liquid paraffin during the dipping. In case the paraffin will not be hot enough, it will harden too fast and it will not be possible to carve it.

2. The second step is the actual carving. This is the most creative and fascinating part of the candle preparation – the step of interpretation of the artist’s fantasy and imagination into the reality. For the purpose of carving special tools are used. The artist needs to decide upon the design in advance, in order for his motions to be quick and exact, since one has only a quarter an hour before the candle cools down and hardens.

3. The third and the last step is to dip the carved candle into a special acrylic lacquer in order to create shine and to protect the prepared candle from the outer cold and hot damages, as well as from the dust accumulation.

The result is a stunning unique candle, which is a piece of art even when it is not burning. And when it is, it floods the room with soft and colorful light coming from its numerous curves.
